Tuesday Trench Truth
Most of us have been taught about the value of forgiveness, the why of forgiveness and even the how of forgiveness. In my own SOAR journey, I am also learning what forgiveness isn’t, and this has made forgiveness a lot more possible
Forgiveness isn’t…easy or pain free!
Forgiveness isn’t…just a feeling-because what our feelings can’t do, the blood of Christ has and always will do.
Forgiveness isn’t agreement…with the wrong committed or with the wrongdoer.
Forgiveness isn’t a one-time event…but often a journey because life keeps happening to remind us of the wrong and even the cost of it
Forgiveness isn’t “letting them off the hook”; it’s letting you off, setting you free
Forgiveness isn’t boundaryless; in fact, forgiveness can teach us boundaries
Forgiveness isn’t…always reconciliation or restoration.
Who are you handcuffed to in unforgiveness? I pray these truths resonate in your soul and help set you free
