Often times we find ourselves going through things with either are friends or family. Where they have said something or you have said something has hurt you really badly or have done something to ruin the relationship. Our state of mind tells us to not forgive those who have hurt us and have put us through so much pain. But in the midst of the pain that we have caused God by our sin God still chose to forgive us and die for us loving us to the point where we can’t love ourselves or anyone as much as he loves us.
Choosing to forgive or not forgive someone is a hard choice depending on what they have done to you or said to you. But by God’s grace he can lead people to forgive others no matter how difficult it may be. I recently watched the movie “I can only imagine” a movie about the artist behind the song “I can only Imagine” and what his life was like and what lead him to write this song. He was struggling with writing songs because He didn’t forgive his dad for hurting him and not being a good father towards him until he realized that God had sent him home to fix things up and he realized that His dad has cancer and is dying and he decided to forgive his father for all the pain he caused. By God’s grace we are able to do that too we just need to have God give us the words to.
I myself have been working on forgiving someone for the hurtful words they have said to me and how they have made me feel when they treated me really bad but I have come to the conclusion that I can’t do it on my own I need God to give me strength to be able to it.
If you are going through a rough time right now with a relationship that you are in whether bf/gf or family or friendships know that God can give u the strength to forgive others and He can provide the right timing for it.
