3 Steps to ForgiveThose Who Have Hurt You

Blessings loves!

Has someone ever done something to you and it hurt so bad that you just didn't want to forgive, as a matter of fact, you vowed to never forgive them? Holding onto that hurt poisons us spiritually and mentally. I know, I have been there. In the scriptures we are called to forgive one another. After all, we need God's forgiveness too. 

Matt. 6: 14-15 says For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. So let's start the journey to forgiveness today. Below are 3 steps to get you started!

1. Be willing to forgive.
In order to forgive someone, you have to be willing. Open your heart and be willing to forgive and let go of whatever they did to you.

2. Realize we all need forgiveness and are forgiveness everyday. 
We sin everyday and God forgives us. Who are we not to forgive?

3. Accept that the past cannot be changed.
It has already happened and no matter what, the past will not be any different.

When I read the following quote by Oprah, it really opened my eyes to what forgiveness is about.

Who do you need to forgive today?
