The power of forgiveness-- "Unforgiveness is like a cancer: it will eat you from the inside out." --Mary Johnson Sons Murder, Videos Clips, Essential Videos, Forgiveness 3 28, Power Force, Profound, Mothers Forgiveness, Minneapolis Mom, Shorts Videos
Reminds me of a quote my high school psych teacher used to always say, "He who angers you controls you." I'm not sure if she said it or if someone else did but I've remembered it all these years and love it.
I try for my daughter's sake. I refuse to let my mistakes or past feelings get in the way of being the best mother I can be. She is my life. Everything I did has led me to her, so I can't regret the decisions I made only the way I made them. I have forgiven myself for hurting the one person that will always hold a special part in my life.
Yes! So many people think that holding grudges makes them "cool" or "hard" well news flash! That's not the case. By not forgiving others, you're choosing not to follow God's word. Take a min. & reflect on that. Maturity takes time but God's word is and always will be there.
So many problems today that are labeled "mental" issues have deep roots in the sin of unforgiveness. No amount of prescription drugs will ever take the guilt away that we harbor from not forgiving others. Forgiveness is powerful! I know from experience!
