How To Forgive
Forgiveness is a very deep subject with a very simple answer. If we want to be unhappy continue to refuse to forgive. Your power is taken from you and given to someone else. You may need ideas for ways to forgive.
You do not have to trust the person who harmed you – you only have to forgive. Sometimes it is a journey and a process of time but it has to happen in order to move forward with freedom. Some time you are required to forgive and forgive again until you have truly left it behind – then you are able to wish the person well.
Be relieved that the person who wounded you cannot do it again. Move away from the negatives and into positives. Be determined to improve your life, your thoughts and your actions. You may feel numbness when you forgive but then it turns to freedom. Love it.
Do not run in front of the truck to get hit again. Guard yourself – but with a heart that holds no grudges. Move the grudges out; force them away, give them up. Holding onto grudges and unforgiveness do you no good and never will.
Pray for freedom. Request a soft heart that gives and does not take. Ask for discernment as to situations and people in your lives; how to handle situations and how to react to people.
Forgive even though you don’t want to; let go even though it’s hard to relinquish and be free.
