forgive and move on

Any hurt

 

no matter how small

 

it might seem,

needs forgiveness.

 

If we refuse to forgive,

 

that relationship

 

will break down.

 

When someone hurts us,

the instinct is to strike back....

 

but when we do,

 

we not only destroy

any possibility of reconciliation,

 

but also we allow

anger and hate

to control us.

We become a captive

to the past,

poisoned by

bitterness all those years

bitterness or anger

becoming part of our identity

making it difficult

to get rid of them.

 

We can't change the past;

we can only seek

God's forgiveness

for what we did wrong.

But when God has forgiven us,

shouldn't we also

forgive others?

 

Don't let the past

hold you captive any longer;

it's time

to let

your bitterness & resentment

go

so that you can be

free.

 

We must always be ready

to forgive,

yet never demanding forgiveness

for ourselves.

Forgiveness is the way

to respond

to the imperfections of others

The heart attitude

to deal with the failures of others

is important.

 

Getting things roughly right

comes before

getting things exactly right...

 

we need to learn patience.

We need to forgive, correct,

not demand

and move on.

This is the right attitude.

We all fall short

none is perfect.

Sometimes we made mistakes

that could have been avoided.

 

We have to forgive others,

and also ourselves,

and move on.
 

The key to

love

forgiveness and patience

 

is God's grace to you.

Grace

is the currency

of all true relationships.

 

Grace

enable us

to accept others as they are.

 

 

It's through

 

intimacy with God

 

that grace abounds.

 

How can you love someone

who had mistreated you?

 

Try to see your enemy as God does.

Christ also died for the person,

who is also hurting.

 

People who strike out at others are like

wounded animals...

 

they know they're in pain,

 

but they resist attempts

to relieve that pain.

By resisting against those who wish

to help them,

 

they bring more pain

upon themselves.

 

 

The reason is pride,

which gets in the way.

 

 

True love submits

and is willing

to sacrifice

for another's sake.

 

The Word of God says...

 

"Be gentle and ready to forgive;

never hold grudges.

Remember the Lord forgave you,

so you must forgive others."

 

Let this command from God to forgive

 

ring loud in our hearts,

 

and let the healing power

 

of forgiveness

 

flow through you

 

and bring healing

 

to your soul.

    Yes…I agree….
    “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. "

    “Bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.”
