One little word... we can say it but until it comes from our hearts...we cannot have the peace that comes from FORGIVING someone or some incident that had happened to us last year.
We we harbor that unforgiveness in our hearts and we only are hurting ourselves. The person who hurt us has forgotten it or doesn't even know they hurt us. When we keep that hurt in us we cause our own stress, our blood pressure to rise and that brings on all sorts of physical problems that we have done to ourselves.
Get close to God and give this hurt to Him. Ask him to help you to forgive the person and take it away from you. You will find peace and actually be able to be around that person again and not feel that aggression boiling inside you.
Just as God forgave you in Christ; you must forgive your enemies or God cannot forgive you.
Let's start out the New Year with a clean heart & conscience.
HAPPY NEW YEAR !! Let's have a good one with Christ by our side.
Prayer: Lord please forgive me for letting this hurt consume me. Take it away from me and clear my heart. Allow me to face this person with love and forgiveness as you would have me do. I do not wish anything bad on this person for hurting me; I leave it into your hands as I know my wrath can never compare to yours. As you soften my heart and forgive me; I pray to start a fresh new healthy year with you by my side. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
God Bless us all in the New Year!
