    Forgiving Is Difficult

    I was inspired to write this after reading a post in this group. Forgiveness really is the answer but it is no easy task for most and well I believe that is so because we start out by trying to forgive the wrong person. Ya all know what I'm talking about, we focus on forgiving...

    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...

    Forgiveness is a weird concept.

    People attempt to manipulate others by playing the "forgiveness" card. Especially if they think you are a Christian. The typical approach is, "I m sorry for what I did to you. But, since you are a good Christian you are a good Christian you have to "forgive and forget...

    I truly do believe this,

    that forgiving someone frees you from whatever power they or their actions have over you. Past hurts need to be let go. So that you can move on and flourish. Its something I have always stressed with my friends, emphasizing how empowering it can be. But be darned if in all my...

    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...

    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.

    Moving Mountains

    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...

    We must develop and maintain the capacity to

    forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.

    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...
