One of the Hardest Things


Sometimes, the hardest person to forgive is yourself.  Knowing that you can’t go back and undo what you did, makes more difficult.  Forgiving yourself means admitting that hard truth to yourself, but then there has to come a time when you let it go, and stop beating yourself up.  Yes, the video taped reruns will replay in your mind from time to time, but that doesn’t mean you have to start the self-destructive thoughts.  For me, it was, and still IS, a learning process.  I used to think that by not forgiving myself was the way I could prove my remorse.  How wrong that train of thought is!  If you don’t forgive yourself, how can you ever move on and have a healthy spirit?  And if OUR SAVIOR forgives you, who are you not to?

The past can be painful to deal with, but not dealing with it only holds you in bondage; that’s not “life more abundantly”; that’s not freedom. Forgiving yourself is just as important, as forgiving someone else. And when you do, you’ll be on the road to loving yourself-how good is that?!

  3. Timely…… you just don’t know! Ugh!! Thank you Lord for my Sissy sharing this heartfelt message. Forgiveness leads to healing.

    Love ya and God bless with hugs from afar 🙂

  4. So true! The Lord convicted me on this and on releasing others and situations from the past which I hung onto without being aware of it. The Lord is so quick to reach out to us with a gift of forgiveness, but when we don’t accept it and forgive ourselves, it’s turning His gift away and that’s just so sad. How freeing it is to say “yes” to His gift.
