To forgive is divine and it is healing, not just for the offender but for the offended. This I have found to be true, though it is not easy to forgive those who have hurt you one way or the other. Especially those who you never imagine could hurt you in live but they did. Every day in your sleeping and waking moments all that comes to mind is the pains.
You do not want to see the offenders but those this resolve the issues or lessen the pains? The answer is capital “no”, it never does. Instead I realized it causes more pains. Each time you think of what happen or see the offender, your heart beat increases from you been furious and upset. There is a deep pain in the heart and all over the body, the offended tend to be tensed and almost scared at the encounter.
It only brings to mind that both the offender and the offended are both in bondage because of un-forgiveness. The moment of truth is the shocking waves that is scary to both if ever they come across each other.
Letting go is relieving and medicinal, even though sometimes the offenders do not show remorse or seek the forgiveness. It is like giving bright beautiful flowersForgiveness brings peace of heart, calm and joy. The heart would no longer palpitate at the sight of the offender and what a relive because no longer will the offended have sleep-ness nights or crazy thoughts on the issue. Every day we hurt someone we love and we are hurt too but the only
divine thing to do is forgive.
Like my late mother in the Lord would say, “forgive in advance everyone that would hurt you in the journey of life, there for when they do offend you there won’t be any impact” So she makes a declaration in her prayers everyday to the Lord that she forgives all that would hurt her that day and also may all whom she may hurt also for give her.
It does not matter who extends the olive branch first, it does not matter who says I am sorry first, just remember forgiveness a light, anyone can shine that light first. Do not wait because the next moment is dicey and we can not tell what that next moment holds in store for us.
What a world we live in and may it be so because we need peace and harmony to dwell in our world. What are we waiting for call someone today to forgive.
