How do you forgive something that is so unforgivable?
Do you avoid them? Do you pretend that it didn’t happen? How do you go on having a relationship with that person or the behavior that person has done. Sometimes I find that going over the situation only makes you feel more exasperated, that what happened just should not have, how do you forgive something that tore your own soul apart? Maybe someone didn’t understand what you said or what he or she said or did. It’s like a vicious circle of reminders isn’t it?
But as hard as it may be and I know it’s difficult and I am not walking in your shoes, don’t know the circumstances, but I can tell you, that if you relinquish it to Christ, you will have peace, the peace that goes beyond what you can only imagine, something that calms your soul, moves you to tears over it but Jesus has a way of just wiping those tears away. Forgiveness is hard, pride comes because you can’t let that thing go, so let it go, it’s no longer your battle it’s now in the hands of Jesus.
Many times I have had to place the hurt at the Throne of Christ, knowing that because someone has done the unthinkable, the unforgivable, I can now look and say that the peace, which Jesus has given to me, outweighs the act of what someone has done. Placing your trust in Him, who has forgiven you for many unforgiving acts against Him through sin, will help you understand why we need to forgive because He forgave us and went to the cross for us so for Him, we are His ambassadors in this world, we represent Him as we turn the other cheek.
So as you read this, is there someone that beckons your heart that needs to be forgiven, I mean really forgiven without holding anything against that person? God wants our whole heart not just half or what you can spare, the whole heart to be molded and ready to follow His ways as we should everyday.
