Forgiving

Yes, it is hard.

Especially when you have forgiven, then they still do it again, expecting that you’d forgive them over and over? Sometimes, it gets irritable.

But we had been forgiven by God Himself once and for all. Time and again we become like Paul, doing things we don’t want to do, and not doing the things we want to do.. yet the truth remains, we had been set free.

It’s a matter of opening our hearts to that truth. Have we truly accepted the truth of our salvation, of us having been set free? Because if we do, we let Him act in our lives and to do according to His ways can already be easy.

Even forgiveness.

But if one continues in his old ways, of doing the wrong things, or of not being able to forgive.. then maybe, he still has part of his or her heart, closed.

Think about it. I also did, and decided to open my heart, fully.
