Life life but can’t forgive!!!
And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.”
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins.
When you believe in God but won’t forgive.
It’s not up to us to forgive, it’s a matter of life or death. Christ has forgiven us already for so much, so who are we to say that someone else is not worthy of forgiveness. If we make the decision to forgive, then He will give us the power to do it. I have been in a place of unforgiveness and it’s painful. Not to the other person but to me. I’ve been on both sides and neither is pretty. So I encourage you, “if you are holding on to pain so deep that it won’t let you forgive, please seek God so He can help you and find a friend that will walk with you through the journey of forgiveness“. The only one being hurt by us holding on is us.
Lord, be with me during the times that I am hurt and to find forgiveness in my heart. And I ask You to be with the one’s holding on to anger in their hearts towards me. Help me to give as You have given to me. Help me to love when everything inside of me is saying hate. I am so grateful that You have shown me so much forgiveness and I know that You expect the same from me. Lord, I pray that my family and friends will not carry around unforgiveness in their hearts because that will only damage their souls. I pray that they will look to You for strength. Amen!!
