Forgiving someone isn’t easy right? Hindi madaling patawarin yung taong nakasakit sayo especially when the wound is deep. Sometimes we are saying that “we can forgive but will never forget” in that case i tell you, you really cannot forgive. I believe that forgiving someone means forgetting also what they have done against you. Just how GOD forgave us, He forgives and forgets. He forgives all our wrongdoings and forget all our sins Hebrews 8:12 “For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.” so that we must also forgive others and forget what they’ve done to us.
In Genesis, The story of Jacob and his brother Esau proves that no matter how deep the wound he caused, no matter hatred came into your heart the day he betray or hurt you still you can still forgive. Jacob stole Esau’s birthright that really broke Esau’s heart and build anger in his heart against his brother Jacob. But when God told Jacob to return to his homeland, send humility and ask forgiveness to his brothers. Esau ran and embrace him. (Genesis 33:4 “But Esau ran to meet Jacob and embraced him; he threw his arms around his neck and kissed him. And they wept.”) see? truly you can forgive and forget someone’s sin if you keep the love in your heart. (1 Peter 4:8 “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.”) What i am trying to say? I just want to say that even a person hurt you a lot, even he/she broke your heart, even this person caused you to stumble, even the pain they caused paralyzed you still you are able to forgive them. God will help you and tell what you have to do. Just have faith in God, He makes all things beautiful in His time even it is painful just obey Him and you will see His amazing ways in your life.
