Forgive Them 

“Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.”
‭‭Colossians‬ ‭3:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Forgiveness is not a feeling. It is a choice to let God have it, hold it, and be responsible for itwhatever it is.

Forgiveness is taking the power away from them and giving it back to God.

You don’t have to trust them to forgive them.

Forgiveness is not about restoring trust in them, it is about trusting God with your heart.

They don’t have to sorry in order for you to forgive them. They don’t even have to know that you have released them to God.

What you do have to do is make the choice today and everyday after, then continue to make the choice until the feeling lines up with the decision. And it will. One day you will be able to remember what happened without reliving the pain.

“When we forgive an offense, we set an a prisoner free, only to discover that we were that prisoner”.
