Forgiveness

True.living

Forgiveness is one of the hardest things to do. Many of us have been hurt, felt offended, and we keep telling ourselves we forgive our offenders but the honest truth is most of us don’t really genuinely forgive our offenders. My question is

1.) how do you know you have genuinely forgiven someone who really hurt you?

2.) how do you forgive someone you love that constantly keep hurting you

3.) when you forgive , do you have difficulties being friends with the person who has hurt you?

Let’s have a conversation.

Forgive

from a spark to a flame

I woke on Wednesday morning from an awful dream. In the dream I had been really nasty to a friend who had caused me, and a lot of others around me, a lot of pain through her lies and deceit. Also in the dream, was my very dear friend who was shocked and appalled my behaviour, was pleading with me for reason and scolding me for being so ungodly. My argument was I didn’t care and, because of the pain I had experienced through this girl’s actions, I felt justified in my behaviour.

“But don’t let the passion of your emotions lead you to sin! Don’t let anger control you or be fuel for revenge, not for even a day. Don’t give the slanderous accuser, the Devil, an opportunity to manipulate you!”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭4:26-27‬ ‭TPT‬‬
As my son woke me from the dream, I came to the quick realisation that…

Rekindling what was once a close friendship

Loving someone is difficult because there is a high-risk high-reward to it.
You can share the things most people will never know about you, have memories
that can never be compared to anything else, you could share your life to that
person.

But what if one day that person does something that will change the whole spectrum of your bond with that person, it will never be the same, and you will be left heartbroken and thinking why did I ever open up and should I ever be that person who puts their heart out there for one day to be broken again?

I lost a dear friend once and got my heart torn apart.

I met this person when I was only 5 years-old, or 5 years-young should I say.
We were in the same school for…

Forgiveness

Journeying Through My Thoughts

image

Forgiveness is the intentional
and voluntary process by
which a victim undergoes a
change in feelings and
attitude regarding an
offense, lets go of negative
emotions such as
vengefulness, with an increased ability to wish
the offender well.

To how I view things,
I think forgiveness is the bravest thing that one can do in their lifetime. Forgiving someone and then moving on means that you are trying to be a better person with no grudges.
One of my friends once asked me how I do it. I didn’t know the correct answer to that question but what I knew is that it’s just something that happens when you are trying to move on. Moving on means moving to new heights and that doesn’t require you to bring along your burdens. But it requires you to bring yourself and the new possibilities you will face onwards.

So, forgiving to me…
