    Forgiving You...

    To forgive someone, you must care about them. When we care about people and we hurt them our first instinct is to apologize. It is a test to see if you care in return. If you stick your nose in the air and walk away obviously they didn't care. If they look at you and forgive you...

    I Forgive You. I happen to believe that forgiveness is an art. While I am aware that many, many people see forgiveness as indicative of weakness, I think I can make a pretty decent argument for the complete opposite interpretation. It begins right at the moment when we first...

    Forgive And Be Forgiven - It's Our Nature

    Don't we all live through the need of forgiveness almost daily. We all do something wrong somewhere, everyday! I do! How could we move on if we don't forgive ourselves...for every little mistake? And the Lord that created us, is even more forgiving than ourselves! Don't...

    To Forgive Is To Free Yourself

    I have held on to my fair share of anger....even feelings of hatred. I'll be honest and say that they have taken their toll on me. The funny thing is that we often hold on to these negative feelings in an attempt to hurt those who hurt us. The reality is that clinging to our...

    When you truly forgive; you free yourself from

    the bondage of bitterness. This is one of life's great lesson. Forgive yourself for your mistakes. Forgive the person who did you wrong. Forgive but do not forget so that you don't do it again.

    Personal Growth

    When we hold on to resentments it festers and in turn others get hurt in the crossfire whether it's intentional or not. It closes the doors to growing as people, spiritually and emotionally. To truly forgive, one must step outside of themselves and see things as a whole and not...
