Forgiveness is something I struggle with daily. I have had someone do me wrong for a long time, and I just can’t let it go. I know in my mind that being unforgiving leads to anger and bitterness but I continue to harbor the ill feelings toward that person. I had a dual purpose when I started this site. First I wanted to encourage others through positive reinforcement. But secondly I was hoping to gain encouragement from others in correcting my own deficiencies. If you struggle with the same problem, what do you do to overcome your unforgiving feelings? Do you seek advice from others or do you solve the issue your way? I am reaching out today for a little encouragement from anyone that can help me get past the inability to forgive. I need to do this before something happens to this person, and I regret it for the rest of my life. God has forgiven us for our sins, and I know I should forgive also. I think what is holding me back is wondering if the other person will accept my forgiveness or hurt me. I can’t worry about that though. If I have forgiven in my heart, then I can’t make them forgive. I can only control myself and no one else.
I encourage everyone today to become a more forgiving person and for me to be able to forgive also.
