When people do us wrong the hurt from the action is painful that at the time we don’t ever believe that there is a way to forgive that person. We also react in ways that make us look like we have never done wrong or made any mistakes in our life that we wish there was a rewind button. Forgiveness is a hard thing to do but it’s so necessary if we want to be able to live a life of peace. Not only peace around us but the peace on the inside. Many of us are carrying burdens with us that we never let go of. Some of this pain is from years ago and even from people who have passed on, but we harvest it inside. This unforgiven is eating away at our souls and our happiness. Leading to us to remain stressful and even gain medical conditions that could have been avoided. I am also dealing with learning how to let the past be just that the past and not let it harvest inside and slowly destroy me and my future. Is it easy not at all. It’s only when we stop and realize that we ourselves may have caused hurt and pain to others and we expect forgiveness can you start to understand that how can we expect to be forgiven if we can’t forgive? It’s a work in progress, it goes back to fixing the man in the mirror first before trying to fix everyone else. Life is a journey of new experience and no matter what the age it’s never to late to change. Don’t do it for the person that hurt you, be selfish and do it for you. Peace of mind, peace within your soul and body. A better you, because your worth it and remember your not perfect either. Keep the faith to push on in this journey that full of twist and turns and ups and downs. Your never alone, our heavenly father is there with you. 🙂
It’s good to know through life course of twist and turns you are not alone. God is like a seat belt that hugs you and holds you tight. He allows you to be able to move and wiggle around but once you have him near you when disaster comes he holds you so you will not get fully damage. Yes we will get cuts and bruises so we can learn from our mistakes and become stronger but his protection is 100 percentage better than not having it at all. Without the seat belt your dead. Make you choice? God Not in your life which is your seat belt or God in your life for added protection. I’m buckling up can’t take chance as it just might be your last. No one’s perfect but you can try.
Advice is something that we all can use from time to time. What’s important is the way it’s giving to us. Sometimes when we get it and we didn’t ask for it and we can feel a kind of way, wondering who said I need help making a decision. It makes you feel incompetent but you must overlook your feelings at times and listen to the advice that is coming and analyze it to see if it’s something you can use. One of the hardest things is to see our own fault and to reach out for help. Our pride can become our down fall if we are not careful. As a person given advice, approach it with sensitivity and understand that advice is something also based mostly on an opinion and doesn’t have to be taken. Not all advice are good at the moment it’s being given. Reflect on the situation and what’s being told and see where it fits in and how it can make you a better person. In the end that’s the goal we need to achieve. Being a better you!
Forgiveness is available for all of us, the biggest question is are we also willing to forgive others the same way God forgives us? We go to God and ask him for mercy but your brothers and sisters we turn away and many times never speak to them for days, weeks, months and even years. Suppose God treated us the way we treat others ; where would we be today? This is just another reason to be thankful for God’s grace and mercy towards us. Let’s try to see if we can do better and show the love that God has for us to others.
