So, Lord you command that I forgive. For years I didn’t know how. How do I let go of the pain, rejections, and humiliations?
I had to understand forgiveness is vital for my spiritual growth. It is not just about the other person nor does it release them from the guilt of actions that caused me pain. Love and forgiveness cannot be separated. In choosing to live according to the love of God and his purpose for my life; forgiving is an option that cannot be avoided. I had to realize that just as I expect God to forgive me daily and forget my sins; I am required to do the same. In reading 1 John 4:20-21 it’s so clear.
