Forgiveness is the key, (from and for you).
– Being forgiven by our heavenly father brings great peace into our life.
– Matthew 6:12,14-15 KJVS  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.  For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:  But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
– Asking others for forgiveness, (whether or not we are to blame, or haven’t even done anything wrong).
– Matthew 5:9,23-24 KJVS  Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.  Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;  Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
– We have to choose to forgive.
– Forgiveness is a choice, not a feeling, although, when we choose to forgive, feeling that we have forgiven will soon follow, as long as we continue in our choice. By that, I mean, that when we feel the pain of our heartbreak, it can make us start holding a grudge all over again, as if the heartbreaking event has just occurred, so often times we have to forgive every day. Remember, it’s a choice, not a feeling!
– When we choose forgiveness on a daily basis, sooner or later, we start feeling like we have forgiven. The feeling that we have forgiven doesn’t always happen the instant we make the choice to forgive. But keep choosing to forgive every day, and one day you will realize that you actually feel like you have forgiven.
– Take it one day at a time. Just decide, today I forgive.
– Dwelling on the heartache makes daily forgiveness much harder.
Don’t think about your heartache.
Don’t keep hashing it over in your mind or going through all the events of how it happened, who was to blame for what, etc.
It just doesn’t help you!
Instead, make the choice to forgive once again, and get busy doing something constructive, or thinking about something constructive, or reading your Bible, or listening to Holy Ghost Radio, (there’s an app for that!).
These things take time.
It takes daily work to complete the process of forgiving.
They’re so worth it!
