I know that I have written before about this topic...... forgiveness. It's something that I'm constantly struggling with. All of these reoccurring thoughts popping into my head. Everything that they said and did. My mind is on constant replay.
I've spoken to the individual about her behavior and how it affected me. The person has apologized but the behavior continues. So is the individual truly sorry if she continues doing over and over again what I have already told her to stop. The answer to this question is .......No!! The individual is not remorseful. However, what am I suppose to do now? Do I seek revenge? Stop talking to her? Remind her of all of the mistakes she has made? (I'm unable to permanently remove her out of my life because of who she is.) So what do I do? I'm constantly praying and asking God to please help me forgive her. I'm constantly beating myself up because it is a struggle.
What does the Bible say about forgiving others. Matthew 6:14-15 "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." Matthew 18:21-22 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?"Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times." What Am I suppose to do? I must forgive!!!!
