Forgiving may seem like the hardest thing we ever have to do, especially when we have been hurt so bad. However, forgiveness is a must. Not so much for those who hurt us, but for us. Forgiveness is medicinal. It is a process that, once it is set in motion, has the power to release negative strongholds; emotions that cause pain, restlessness, lethargy, and the like. We must forgive without limits. When we forgive from the heart and let go of the trespass, which true forgiveness comes from the heart and God knows when it's true, so likewise shall our Heavenly Father forgive us (Mathew 18:35).
The load will get much lighter when Jesus lifts the load.
We forgive to be forgiven.
