I cannot forgive



If you were offered a very good meal, that even makes your mouth water, but you knew it would make you sick, harm your stomach to the point of having to go to the hospital, would you eat it anyway?
Of course not, you would avoid not going through pain and suffering later, the result would not be worth it, right?
The same goes for forgiveness, you have a lot of anger towards a person, feeling hatred and not being able to forgive her.
Except that this bad feeling is inside of you, gnawing at your heart, hurting you and causing problems in your spiritual life, its killing you slowly, but you keep it as a treasure. The person you hate is not hurting with this at all; your hatred only hurts you.
So why keep feeding and guarding something that does you so much bad, that prevents you from even having the presence of God?
Forgiving does not mean you have to cohabit with the person who mistreated and did horrible things against you, forgiving is you cleaning your heart, keeping pure, wish no ill, just be on top of it all.
You need to make a decision, will you continue to be dead in life, or do you actually want to live?
It is a choice, a decision, just as you protect your body to not get sick, denying many things you like to do or eat, in the same way you have to take care of your interior, sacrificing bad feelings that only bring you harm and alienate you from God's presence.
Perhaps you think that forgiving is being weak, silly, or even betraying yourself. Contrary to what many think, forgiveness does not mean weakness; on the contrary, it shows a lot of strength and at the same time intelligent.
So have you decided? You will do well to yourself if you do it.

Deat Mrs. Tania
it is true we have to forgive so our heart's stays clean before God, I know that is not easy but we have to so we can open the way for the baptism of the Holly Spirit.

Thanks

Dear mrs Tania
When you got hurt by someone, forgiveness is for you not for the person who hurt you so when you forgive you are not doing anyone's favour but yourself because you are the one who is feeling uncofortable." For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. Mathew 6:14 Jesus was crucified , beaten and he was bleading yet He said Father forgive them for they don't know what they are doing so who are we to keep grudges inside of our heart if we call ourselves children of God.
Thank you
God bless

When you hold a grudge against someone it is you who have to bear with the consenquences of not being forgiven by God as he said " forgive and you shall be forgiven" you not doing anyone a favour if you forgive but you are doing it for yourself
