Forgiveness is essential if you want to be free to enjoy your life. Yes, it can be hard to forgive, because you may think if you forgive someone they are getting away with the wrong they’ve done to you. But that is a huge misconception. God says “vengeance is mine, I will repay.” (Romans 12:9) God can get people in places that we will never be able to go, such as in their thoughts, their heart and their dreams. So let Him deal with them and you work on you.
Consequently, forgiveness is not for them, it is for you. Unforgiveness or holding on to offenses weighs you down in more areas of your life than you realize. Our spirits were created to soar with the eagles, not pluck with the chickens. So go ahead forgive, let offenses go and release the person(s) that hurt you. Start enjoying your life.
