Have chosen a good face and quote for this morning chit – chat because it is the truth, so write with me as we discuss FORGIVENESS.
Hey, morning, how was your night, yebo ( meaning, i see you). Mine was nice, got knocked off by Flu drug that i took. Anyway, am fine. Hope you ate breakfast….hmmm, am learning too, food isn’t my best activity, but learning because i noticed my princess needs the whole breakfast and needs to be taught the best practices.
Ok, by the way, our chit chat is on FORGIVENESS… ahahhah, Ola, forgiveness how, yes, forgiveness… forgiving your self, forgiving your enemies, forgiving those you love and those who hurt you so bad, forgiving your leaders, forgiving your partner, forgiving your children, forgiving your in laws, forgiving ……………………………………………………………………………
Then i though about this word..be at peace with all men, you see ALL. Roman 12:18 Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone. That was a clear instruction by Apostle Paul through the holy spirit. yes, you can go ahead but Jesus Christ didn’t say anything about it, don’t get too comfortable, he did ooooo Mark 9:50 The salt is good, but if the salt becomes unsalty, with what will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.”
We are salt of this world, of our family, of our work place, of the nation, so if we are so overwhelmed with unforgiveness how do you want to explore your sweetness as the salt of the world. The word of Christ ….Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.” means that I need you more, i need you to be sweet always so if you are to be sweet all the time, you can’t afford to be bitter.
yes, unforgiveness, spring forth the seed of bitterness in us, it makes us feel overwhelmed with low self-esteem, it makes us to miss the bright future ahead of us, it makes you to loss the joy of springing of a new thing, he makes us not to enjoy the love and plan of God for our lives and we focus on the DISTRACTIONS.
I told you, have gone through some tough situations lately, yes, career issues and at the verge of Job loss, conflict in the family, shame….and in all this you are tagged the bad egg, it was all your fault and everyone around wants to play that good person and tell you to your face…IT WAS ALL YOUR FAULT…hmmmm, yes and am sure you are going through one thing or the other too, might be milder or tougher. But we all go through tough times so that we can be a beautiful diamond out in the world.
In all this, what i learnt in a hard way was the power of forgiveness, to let go, to free up, move on, moving on is not ignoring but still loving despite the hurt. Yes, there is no forgiveness, if you stop loving. You must love the people who hurts you, that rub you hard like a hard sand paper.
It is hard to forgive, i know, it is sooooo hard, at the verge of forgiveness, you are full of self-pity, you look for pity party, you search for a way out, we look for a way to justify why we should still be angry, bitter. But, you know what, in all this you are not happy, because forgiveness is a gift to your own Heart.
Be at peace with all men, how do you be at peace if you are not forgiving, if you are not loving, if you ignore. It wasn’t easy, it isn’t easy to just forgive, But, grace assist you to forgive people who hurt you, to forgive yourself and move on. Move on and enjoy your life.
Forgiving someone, myself and any one you need to forgiving, as made me happy, made me free, made me see the future and at the peak of it, it has made me closer and well focused to my Christ Jesus. Despite what people think of me, i choose to forgive, i choose to let go, i choose to be full of Joy and shed all pity.
Forgiving others give us access to gift and answer to our prayers, it is true, recently i was so angered against someone and i needed something, then on sunday God told me open up to this person, let go, and you know what i did, and by yesterday Monday, i was so blessed, and i got a road map to one of my prayer request.
Forgiveness is being Free, everyone loves to be free, forgiveness is Joy, we all love to be, forgiveness is obeying Christ, that is the greatest gift to Christ…..
Lets all make a commitment to Obey God through forgiving.
I am still unfolding more on the power of forgiveness, and am sure you do have your own experience, feel free to share yours or any other experience right at the comment area, right at the bottom of this post.
Love You and have forgiving you for all the hurts you caused me and the ones that are yet to come………can we all make this commitment
Its me again
