When we forgive others it is to forgive ourselves. We have to move past the pain, hurt, and heart ache of the defining act of forgiveness that penetrated through the heart and burned through the soul. Forgiveness is that utterly sensitive area that is hard to break through when all is broken into pieces of solidarity and absolute confinement in the spirit. These things take so much time to heal. “Time heals all wounds.”
Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
Don’t rush the process of forgiveness. These are the best words that were spoken to me all day. Sometimes we want to hurry to get through something because the end results seem to be a reward for accomplishing a goal. However, when you choose to forgive it is not just a goal in life, it is a huge part of life. What we have to do is be abundantly grateful for the ability, desire, and the willingness to forgive those that hurt us, so that we can heal and be better!
We have to get back to self-preservation, self-love, and self-awareness and know that we are loved by God unconditionally, and HE will never leave us or forsake us. We have to continue believe in “priceless,” and blessed opportunities in life. We have to be thankful everyday that we did not miss God’s grace and mercy, and that HE is the true reason for the season of healing and massive self-discovery, We have ti let go and let God! The healing process forces you to honor each step. You have to may have to take a step back to look at the true power of forgiveness. Why it is important to forgive in the first place, the ability to capture the details is so much more than the picture. These things will both take massive time and practice to forgive, because forgiving is something that will not happen over night.
And whenever you attend praying forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive your trespasses. Mark 11:25.
