25 Jun No Forgiveness
I was reminded of a post I wrote about how I was almost pimped as a teenager. I was no prostitute yet this “big aunty” whom I thought loved me and could do me no harm or ill deceived me to her male friend’s home and almost got me raped because I refused to give in. You can read more about it here.
Anyway, I know I was hurt and angry with her, very hurt. Few years later after I became a Christian, I had to release her from my heart in order to please my Heavenly Father and liberate myself too (forgiveness holds one in bondage).
So many times we hold people in un-forgiveness because of things they say, didn’t say, did or didn’t do. It does us no good at all because when we do this, we have placed ourselves in a position to receive no forgiveness from God whom very often, even when not intentional, we offend in great and little ways. Can you imagine living a life without God’s forgiveness?
But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your failings and shortcomings. Mark 11:26 AMP

Hmmm, right now I am struggling with this. Well maybe not a struggle. I am praying daily to be able to move forward. Atferall more was done to Jesus Christ who was so innocent! So who am I to think man cannot be so cruel to me? So daily I’m seeking Him to heal my heart and just helping me to become more like Him. I truly don’t want to miss out on Heaven.

The attitude of forgiveness is the key to freedom from the spirit and corruptible power of bitterness.
Forgive and be free…
