Forgiveness

Forgiveness

Hey guys! I know it has been a while and I am truly sorry for the loooooooooooong interval! It is inexcusable! I promise I will do better.

Today’s topic is FORGIVENESS!

To be honest, guys, I am struggling with this. I feel so burdened. I find it so hard to let things go. I feel I am being stupid. I feel I would be letting people get away so easily with hurting me. And it is actually hurting me the more. I wasn’t always like this, actually. There were times before I was, say 17, I was forgiving. I even forgot most of what people did against me. But then something happened that made me change even before I realized it.

Tonight, I cast my mind back and figured how I was able to forgive. I have remembered how ashamed it made those people feel and how they actually apologized after I had forgiven them in my heart. I remembered how I wasn’t dragging along anyone’s baggage of evil done against me. I have remembered the positives and supported them with the little I have read.

Truly, forgiveness makes you free. I do not have to think of people as ‘enemies’ or ‘haters’ or simply in a negative way. I take them as they are and move on. I am not perfect myself. I have stepped on toes and will continue to. It is human! 

Forgiveness will give me the positive energy! I wouldn’t be wasting time dwelling on pain. I would use this time to recreate myself. Work on my ideas. I will prosper when I am forgiving.

Forgiving people will make me know I am on the right path as a Christian. “And forgive us, as we forgive those who trespass against us”. It is my job as a Christian to forgive. Jesus forgave and still forgives me. Who am I not to forgive?

Today, 17th of October 2013, I, Phoebe pledge to forgive AND forget the pain. I will learn my lessons from the pain, yes. But I won’t dwell on it. I want to move forward. I don’t need any baggage from the past weighing me down or pulling me down. I challenge you to do same!

  1. Its great to be forgiven as well as we forgive. Forgiveness sets you free. it’s not easy to decide to let go. NEVER! But its always worth it. Peace, joy among others are the few benefits of forgiving.Well done on your resolve to forgive and I encourage you to allow the Holy Spirit teach you the best way to deal with all instances that cause you to get hurt. Love keeps no record of wrong

  2. What a wonderful pledge to make! I firmly believe that our Lord commands us to forgive, not so much for the offender, but for us. Carrying around the weight of past hurts only festers and spreads a sickness in our souls. Forgiving does not mean that what someone did to you is okay, it means that you will refuse to allow it to define you. Not an easy road sometimes, but the freedom forgiveness brings is so worth it! Grace and peace to you.
