Listed below are links to weblogs that reference 3 Insights on How to Forgive When it's Hard:

Comments

Only God can forgive and forget. But when 'we' sincerely do forgive, by the time we remember, it won't be with grieve or pain from the hurt anymore, but with gladness.

Ogundipe, thank you for sharing. I agree that while our memories of hurt don't disappear, how we feel when we remember can definitely change. I have glad memories of when people have forgiven me, and when God helped me forgive others.

'times it takes grace to do these.

Im pleased with the 3rd item "When you can't forgive, pray". It lets the holy spirit do the healing too.

the 1st item highlights a major issue: Most ppl think that things should simply return to default just because you have forgiven them; forgetting causality - Cause & Effect.

But this raises a Q "How much of the effects should the forgiven suffer?"

Obinnanze, thank you for your feedback. You ask a great question about consequences. I think those decisions will always require prayer and wisdom.


You may find this post and webinar about Townsend's "Beyond Boundaries" helpful: http://zondervan.typepad.com/zondervan/2011/10/dr-john-townsend-webcast-video-viewing-guide.html Your question on consequences especially makes me think of webinar parts 2 and 3, "How do I know when the other person is ready?" and "How can I take steps forward?"


I hope that's helpful. Thanks for sharing, -Adam

I like this. I was once told that when you learn how to forgive yourself, after disappointing others, you we learn to forgive others easily when they do same. Forgiveness is very important. When you don't forgive, there can never be progress.
