You set my soul free…

” What is forgiveness? Forgiveness is not about letting the other person off the hook. Forgiveness is letting it go and giving it to Christ so YOU can be free. You may not realize it, but without forgiveness you feel anger, resentment, trust issues, you have issues with the people around you, and much more. I’ve heard a lot of people say I can’t ever forgive this person because they did this/that. If you only knew the freedom you feel when you forgive someone. The merciful…will be shown mercy.”

When you forgive someone, it doesn’t mean you’ll forget, it just means it won’t hurt as much as it once did. It’s not easy to forgive someone for what they did, but it feels so much better when you let it go. You feel a sense of freedom, the air feels and tastes so much fresher, you’re no longer carrying a weight on your back, and you can see clearly.
