Are You Hurt? #iForgive ┇ Life Changing Islamic Reminder
Quote by Anonymous
I once heard the story of a girl who was sexually abused by her father for years. This caused the young woman to go down the wrong path in life. One day that woman walked past a church, when she walked in the pastor was preaching about forgiveness. He said that there was nothing we could do that God will not forgive us of. She had caused so much hurt to herself and others that she was so overwhelmed by the thought of being made new. That day that woman gave her life to Christ and in her heart, she seeked to find her father who she had disowned for many years.
Love the friends you have, forgive the ones that hurt you, and never let go of happy memories. Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave. There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature. The words 'I will forgive you, but I'll never forget what you've done' never explain the real nature of forgiveness. To err is human; to forgive, divine.
Why should God let you into Heaven?
Sometimes it is easier said that done, a sudden surge in anger will become a life time of regrets. How to forgive and forget when someone hurts you in a relationship? Or when your best friend back-stabbed you? At the end of the day, ask yourself, what is the outcome you stand to gain if you choose not to forgive? If the outcome is better when you forgive, that will be the right direction.
Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future. Forgiving someone is hard. It can seem impossible at times. And yet, forgiveness is vital to a healthy life and healthy relationships. You simply cannot hold onto too much anger for too long. It never ends well. Some situations get so bad that you can no longer allow certain people into your life anymore.
