“Maybe, I was chosen to forgive? ”@reynamorrisco
Clinging to bitterness causes further wounding.
Some examples of that are uncontrollable anger, hate, digestive issues, body tension, headaches, isolation, on going grief, anxiety and fear. And hurting more people because of your past pain.
Have you ever heard the saying, “ Hurt people, hurt people and healed people, heal people”.
Which one do you prefer to be?
I know I prefer to be healed!
Choosing to forgive is to stop focusing on what others have done to us and focus on what Jesus has already done for us.
Forgiveness is being in the presence of our Heavenly Father.@reynamorrisco
That is His nature. So to forgive is to be more like Him. We find salvation which gives us the confidence in knowing forgiveness is the key to living freedom from our past hurts.
Friend, we must move forward! It’s time to let go of what hinders our growth. To trust God with the pain. To pray for the willingness to forgive. No sin is to great (abuse, addiction, adultry, murder, stealing, lying) for Our Father, He is mighty and He will cleanse our heart from the pain that so easily cripples our spirit and entangles us in the cobb webs of hate and unforgiveness.
Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing. Luke 23:34
Heavenly Father, my heart is numb, my spirit is heavy. The hate in my heart is growing. Cleanse my heat and mind Lord. Make it obedient to your word. Give me the willingness to forgive my abusers, those that have hurt me. As well as the willingness to forgive myself for the pain I also caused to others. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins and the sins of others. You are a perfect example of choosing to forgive. Thank you for choosing me to offer the gift of forgiveness to others and myself. May they see your power in your forgiveness. I let go of the burden, I release _____ (person or the pain). I am a new creation free from my past. Ready for the abundant life you have called me to! A redeemed heart I have to give to others. My I walk in my calling to forgive so others can experience you. Jesus Name, Amen!
