Forgiveness-

We must each forgive everyone for everything.  Just as Christ expects. "Forgive those who have trespassed (sinned) against me"-Lords Prayer. Christ is faithful and will also forgive and forget our sins. 

 

 It has been somewhat proven hate, anger, quarreling,  ill feelings, and anything that is not uplifting to another over time causes sickness and disease in the angry person.  The person or persons whom you are upset with are happy and understand the forgiveness of God. Some even control their thoughts and eventually forget.   Forgetting is best when the Devil reminds you, and you do not recall whatever happened.  Just as God forgot your sins when you asked for forgiveness.  God doesn't remember,  so neither should we remember. 

 

Matthew 6:6-13. 
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

 

Philippians 4:8.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

 

Forgiveness is NOT an option with God. You must Forgive those heartbreaking memories, rape, mean spirited thoughts, what happened to you, adultery, lies, inability or lacking to want to be better-sons, daughters, parents. And anything you can add to this list. 

If it will help, write everything on a ream of paper.  End with, God I forgive all. Then burn the paper.  But, do not burn down your house. Ask God for peace and joy.

 

John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

The word "let" means you have to make the choice to be at peace.

 

Matthew 18:23-35

“Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him. Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt.
“The servant fell on his knees before him. ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay back everything.’ The servant’s master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go.
“But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii. He grabbed him and began to choke him. ‘Pay back what you owe me!’ he demanded.
“His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.’
“But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt. When the other servants saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed and went and told their master everything that had happened.
“Then the master called the servant in. ‘You wicked servant,’ he said, ‘I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’ In anger his master turned him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed.
“This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart.”
