Forgive as if you forgave yourself. pt 2
For giving our selves is the hardest part of forgiveness. There have been countless times where I have done something stupid and while I am trying to apologize but the person is waving his or her hands telling me that is no big deal. I am glad they forgave me but how do I get over what I have done. I Move forward, it has happened they are not mad they are open to forgiving me now I must be willing to do the same for myself. I have better things to look forward to instead of beating myself up over what had happened just then or maybe even a year ago.
We all make bad mistakes, mistakes are great! If we learn from them. Without life experience all the book knowledge will only get one so far. It is not until one is in the mud day in and day out understanding what really happens in the trenches. Life is here for us to live it, to love it to welcome in the excitement, adventure, passion that comes with the challenges. It is to late to change what has already happened so knowing this learn from it and move forward.
Therefore, as God chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourself with compassion, kindness, humility, genteelness, and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another.if any of you has a grievance against someone. forgive as the Lord for gave you.
