So there i was today, chatting with a friend and thinking of what to blog about today!…. and there came the suggestion…. forgiveness…. and i thought to myself..hmm not bad!.. so here i am… writing my opinion on what forgiveness really is..
forgiveness, i have got to understand is not really about the person that offended you… it really is for you!… am i the only one or when someone annoys you, at times the person might not even know you are angry!… you just have this heavy burden in your heart!… you don’t really feel good until you pour out how angry you are to someone or write about it… you just need to talk to someone/ write somewhere how you truly feel.
you will not have total peace till you forgive the person!… i remember this one incident that someone got me so mad!…i was angry at the person, but then the person looked pretty normal…living their normal life… I was the one taking it all p!… J Just the sight of the person alone annoyed me, i was angry in my spirit, i didn’t feel better till i sorted out our differences and forgave the person.
The bible even says that you should forgive 70×7 times in a day… and i do not see how just one particular person will annoy you that much in one day… Jesus was just trying to say we should forgive no matter what… i know there are times we think the person does not deserve forgiveness.. But think of it this way… “Our Lord’s prayer”…. forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us…
If you can’t forgive your neighbor, friend, family, wife/husband…. then do not ask God for forgiveness because He won’t answer you. Try to look past your differences… be the bigger person and apologize… say you’re sorry…. forgive so your prayers would be answered.
i read somewhere that the first to apologize is the bravest… the first to forgive is the strongest…and the first to forget is the happiest… try and live with this mentality…. if you don’t forgive… you’ll just walk around like a sad fellow…. with so much frown on your face like you are carrying the sin of the world!…. release that person you’ve been so annoyed with…. let peace once again flow in your heart!… not wearing a frown when you see your supposed enemy coming!… and remember no offense is too great… you can forgive!!
Happy Sunday y’all 🙂 #stay blessed
hey future….i have plans for you…. i really do!
but God’s plan is way bigger than mine
Am not afraid of you….(my future) because i know you are bright
my today may look small,opinionated peeps might see me now and shake their heads
but… watch out world for this kingdom star
am coming to set new standards
dear future….little fragments of you are beginning to add up
i smile so hard at times because of how sure i am of a great you (my future) Glory to God i am saved 🙂
my future is settled!!
if i ask you what faith is…. you’ll probably recite the popular verse of the bible: faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen….
really though, i find it hard to have faith at times, especially when it seems like all hope is lost. but then what brings me back on track is the thought that the basis of my religion- Christianity is all about faith. i haven’t seen God yet i believe so deeply that He exists…..
but the bugging question in view- why then is it so hard to believe at times?….. we rarely know how much faith we express everyday though, but when we are conscious that we need to have faith concerning a certain situation.. we tend not to believe..
a typical example is when you go to bed, you set your alarm to wake you up simply because you believe you’ll wake up and not die in your sleep…. (although God is the One that protects). it just points out the fact that we express a little faith everyday!… and as bible scholars we all know that: faith as little as a mustard seed will move mountains!
simply think, God created the heavens and the earth, the universe, the stars, the moon and so much more…..really..is there anything He cant do?… He is the all powerful God and there is no situation that is too big for Him to handle!
if you can believe there is a God…Our Creator…. who you cant see…. i think faith should not be as hard as it seems!
JUST BELIEVE!!! 😀
life…. what is your perspective on life?….. is life all about birth and death to you?…. is there truly eternity?.. all these questions with different answers running through your mind.
my opinion about life though….. it is just a temporary place… we all have a duration on this earth… what you make of your life on earth determines your eternity… and yes i do believe there is eternity..(heaven or hell)…..your choice!
achievement is good yh!…. but like the bible says.. ”what shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul”….. many of us, myself included act like there is no life after death. There is…. and it would be foolish to play ignorant!….. hell was made for the devil and his demons, but people will join them either because of ignorance or unbelief or unrighteousness…..and so much more.
take your time today, think of your life!… are you living it in a way that will definitely lead you to hell?… plus do not forget you have a purpose on this earth!…. God did not just bring you here to eat, drink and sleep. on judgement day- you’ll account for what you did on earth.
I’ll like to encourage someone reading this… to love- its d greatest commandment…. if you love someone, you’ll easily forgive….you’ll freely give….. also, do not live your life like there’s no eternity…. always be conscious of d fact that there is judgement day!…. live your life like the next minute is rapture….. (Mathew 24-25)….
thanks for taking your time to read this 🙂 looking forward to your comments!
hey FSP readers…. its a beautiful day to inspire someone…. 🙂
