FORGIVENESS IS HEALING


Yesterday, the healing power of forgiveness was all upon me. I reconciled with the people who hurt and wronged me.


It is not worth to live our lives harboring ill feelings for others and waiting for the time to revenge upon someone that has done us wrong. This is a dead end way of living life. Most of the time it costs more time and effort to avenge a wrongdoing than to simply forget. It is a painful process. It takes time and effort to practice forgiveness, as it does not happen overnight, and it will take humility to recognize and acknowledge angry feelings. But if we ask our heavenly Father for a gift of forgiveness, He will surely help us. Hatred retards our spiritual development and growth.

Who did you reconcile with? I know you well, ang tagal mong magharbour ng ill feelings.

Yes, that's one thing I want to improve. I just don't like anybody spreading lies at my expense. You know well, I can be your best friend, or your worst enemy.

Forgiveness is something that is so hard to do, yet when done, is very elating.
