How to Forgive Those Who Hurt You

Image credit:

Forgiving others who have hurt you is not always an easy process. And that is exactly what it is - a process. But it is a necessity to forgive others who have hurt you because it is the start of the healing process and also to save yourself. Forgiving people is the only way that you can release that grudge of bitterness that you still keep against that person whereas if you never forgave, you become consumed and ultimately destroyed by the bitterness you keep.

Now does that mean that it will be easy? Will you ever forget? Absolutely not! It is a process and you may never forget the bad experiences but forgiving that person who hurt you is the first step to letting go of the anger, rage and bitterness that is slowly destroying you in order to get back YOU.

Even Jesus said it in the Bible to "bear" with people in order to forgive. So even Christ implied that it was not going to be easy, but yet it is still a necessity, as Christ also has forgiven us.
Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. Colossians 3:13-14
So have you forgiven all of those who have hurt you in your past? And if not, how about today? Take it to the Lord in prayer.
