Letting go of all of the ones who hurt me
‘Cause they never did deserve me
Can you imagine me?
Saying no to thoughts that try to control me-‘ImagineMe’ Kirk Franklin
Those lyrics remind us how important forgiving and forgetting is. Forgiving others often takes time. We have a divine example for forgiving others! God knew that man needed forgiveness, so He sent His Son Jesus to deliver all of mankind from the eternal consequences of their sins.
Forgiving others often starts as a decision of surrender-an act of our will. This surrender invites God to begin working in our lives in a deeper level, allowing God to heal us.
To forgive is to release. Let it go.
Freely and wholeheartedly grant freedom and blessing to those who have offended you and let God handle it.
