We Must Forgive,but Never Forget

We all have been hurt by someone at least once or maybe even twice in our lifetime.Stop holding on to that hurt because I know that it is stopping you from moving on to that next journey in your life. Have you ever had someone hurt you so bad you wanted that person to feel the same hurt you felt?I think we all have but leave that up to God.We tend to not forgive people and think that they will suffer from ,No we are the ones who suffer.I found that one of the hardest thing to do “Forgive”.I’m not saying that it will take the hurt back from when you felt it ,but it will bring happiness in the future ahead.I had to learn that the hard way because I suffered for several years ,because I wanted that person who hurt me to feel my pain.I had to really talk to God and let him know that it was time for me to forgive.Once I did forgive that person I was able to move on and not hold the hate in my heart.I was able to never hold hate For anyone in my heart.Over the years I was able to forgive a lot easier ,but never forget. Forgiveness is not for the other that person,Forgiveness is for You.Remember that it is okay to never forget but learn that it is inner peace that you get with forgiving.

  1. You are right on! It’s not easy and it’s very unnatural… But God doesn’t ask us to do something without enabling us to do it- it always helps when I seek His strength- can’t do it on my own! Thanks for the reminder!! Peace to you!

  2. So so true! I was listening to a sermon by Phil Wagner (Oasis Christian Church L.A) this morning and he mentioned Matthew 6 and he reminded me to “bless those who persecute you”. I have a long-time burden of a hurtful situation from 2007 in a new teaching role and the Lord gently reminded me that it’s time to let it go. Thankyou so much for your writing – looking forward to reading more of your wise words πŸ™‚
