Yesterday at church the preacher from my church talked about bitterness and forgiveness. When this came up I got this lump in my throat because this completely relates to my life currently; because I have not forgiven my brothers’ for what they did to me. It never ceases to amaze me that God always sends the right message at just the right time! I also did some reading in my bible that related to what was discussed in church and the following verses are what I found.
Matthew 6:14-15 states: 14″If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. 15 But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.
Ephesians 4:31-32 states: 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. 32 Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.”
I know that I need to forgive them but I simply don’t know how to… I also know that it is pertinent to my healing that I forgive them so that I can move on and put the sickness behind me. It’s just so hard because what they did will always be with me and when I think about it I get so angry that they could even do that to their baby sister.
