Have you ever found it difficult to forgive someone after they have hurt you? There are occasions when someone wrongs you so severely that you grow resentful. It gets so bad that you stop even thinking about asking for forgiveness and moving on.
One of the most difficult things anyone could ever do is forgive. However, if you don't forgive someone, it doesn't affect them; instead, it keeps hurting you. It's like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die when you cling onto a grudge. Additionally, if you reflect on what they did, it makes your own day miserable. They might not even be conscious of the influence they still hold over you. If you don't forgive someone, you're giving them permission to keep hurting you. If it's someone who despises you, they truly enjoy seeing you go through this. It denotes their victory.
My beloved child, I am aware of how cruel some individuals can be. When the people you most trusted betray you, it could destroy your heart. You might find it difficult to comprehend why the folks you treated so nicely gave you nothing but heartache in return. People might have abused you because you are a good person. And as a kind of self-defense, you have decided to quit being a good person. You give someone the advantage when you allow yourself to be altered as a result of anything they did to you.
People's actions, not your value, are a reflection of who they are on the inside, my child. They might call you names or use derogatory language. But that is merely a mirror of their inner selves. It's a result of their own darkness inside. Give them some of their own medicine, forgive them, and pray for them instead of becoming enraged and insulting them again. in order for God's light to illuminate their dark souls.
“Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary:
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
If he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
~ Romans 12: 19-20
Whenever you feel like you are about to lose it because of how someone has wronged you, my faithful one, call out to me as your mother. There is nothing at all wrong with sobbing when you are hurt or angry. However, I beg you not to hold resentment against anyone who has wronged you.
You are a sweet youngster, and you have a loving heart. People believe that you are weak rather than strong because of how much you love people. By letting your bitterness consume you, don't give those who have wounded you the upper hand. and to put your heart of love and purity at risk.
You need to give yourself time to mourn and experience pain, even when forgiving seems so difficult. It makes sense that way. On the other hand, being unable to forgive due to resentment would only make you a slave to the one who injured you. Being unforgiving is compared to consuming poison and expecting the other person to perish.
When you ask for my assistance, I will pray on your behalf so that God's grace may fall upon you and cause your heart to soften.
Father, forgive them, Jesus cried out while He was dying on the cross. Because they have no idea what they are doing. He begged God the Father to pardon those who were trying to murder Him. And He carried out this action as He passed away. To die for your enemies is the ultimate display of love. So please, forgive your adversaries. Pour kindness coals on their heads. Bitterness and resentment shouldn't prevent you from receiving eternal life. You say, “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who transgress against us,” when you say the Lord's prayer. You cannot be forgiven unless you first forgive yourself.
You work hard to bring harmony and joy wherever you go, and as your mother, I am proud of you for that. Your generous spirit and joyous disposition warm my heart. And I would make every effort to prevent the evil of this world from jeopardizing your soul. To continue on the noble path, however, you must first take the first step. and asking for my assistance anytime you need it.
Hands Together In Prayer
Dear mother, on the days when I find it difficult to forgive, I humbly ask you to pray on my behalf so that God's mercy may descend upon me and soften my heart.
