Somebody said: “A non-sincere forgiveness is not forgiveness at all and if we cannot forget, there is a fair chance we haven’t really forgiven”

Forgiving Others

Many of us are maybe emotionally hurt and wounded right now. You have been hurt because the unfair treatment of family, a sibling is given much attention, affection and love by your parents than you. If you are a mother maybe you have present experiences of being physically abuse or beaten by your husband (a bothered wife). Or maybe you have a very low self esteem because you have experienced a severe and painful discrimination from people around you.

I do believe that the lasting effects of all these unpleasant events in your life can leave you with lifelong of feelings of regrets, bitterness, and anger and to the point of having a desire to get even. At this day it seems that forgiveness is hard for you to release for those people who have made your life at the moment down in the mud.

I understand your plea—the word “not right now, I am deeply hurt”, it’s really hard to forgive. Maybe some of us have the capacity to easily forgive and forget those people who made them miserable but you are not like them, right?

But friends if we will greatly consider the word of God that says “For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” - Matthew 6:14-15 NIV BIBLE

Our God gave important value in forgiving you and forgiving others. Maybe if just maybe you will try to let your heart and not your head decide, then it will become possible for you and me to bestow a real, genuine kind of forgiveness that God want to see from us. Because the kind of forgiveness the bible is promoting is a forgiveness that comes from the heart. Somebody said: “A non-sincere forgiveness is not forgiveness at all and if we cannot forget, there is a fair chance we haven’t really forgiven”

So friends think about the beautiful side of forgiving others. If we forgive others—that is the right time God can heal us inside. Every deep wounds and hurts inside you, believe that God has a way of healing them. Just give it a try and ask to God to lend you courage to forgive. Remember as God forgive us, we must forgive others also.

Forgiveness has to be an act of the will and not a feeling ... then I believe the hurt will start to fade , and it releases God to convict the person who hurts us ..but if we refuse to forgive , we bind ourselves up as well as the other party ..
God bless you my friend
