Forgiveness is an issue between you and God! The person you need to forgive doesn’t even need to know that you have forgiven them. However, if you fail to forgive them you are only hurting yourself and your relationship with God. Forgiving someone sets you free. Forgiveness is a process, but it is also a choice, a decision needs to be made. How do you know if you have truly forgiven someone? You know that forgiveness is real when you truly want the best for that person in every situation. Forgiving someone is not admitting that what they did was right or didn’t hurt. Forgiveness is not about pretending that everything is OK. Forgiveness is about releasing yourself from the situation. Forgiveness is about not letting what happened hurt you more than it has already. Forgiveness is about moving on and not becoming bitter, hard-hearted or cynical. Forgiveness is about obeying God and trusting Him and His justice. Forgiveness is about restoring your relationship with God.
