We all need to realize when we harbour those hurts and offenses, it keeps us stuck in the past. When we harbour those hurts and offences it continues to only cause harm in our life. If we want to move forward in joy and peace, we have to choose forgiveness.
We have to accept that forgiveness is always the right choice. Forgiveness has nothing to do with the person who hurt us. Forgiveness is the choice to hand our hurt and anger over to God and let Him make up the difference. When we choose to extend forgiveness, that's when we choose to receive His forgiveness!
