FORGIVENESS AND LOVE
God Blessed Morning Family!
To Forgive is to Love as to Love is to Forgive, for you cannot have one without the other. There are times in which we will make decisions out of emotion and because we know that we must forgive those who trespass against us we forgive in order to move on quickly, but in that moment of forgiveness we have overlooked the most important aspect of forgiveness which is Love. Therefore, in that instance of forgiveness we are driven by emotion and going through the motions of what we say is forgiveness but we remain holding onto the pain, for in order to release the pain we must Love those who trespass against us. This is more easily said than done, but is what Jesus did at the precise moment in which He was being crucified, for He knew that in order to move on He would have to not only forgive but pray in Love for our forgiveness. For in every life there will come some pain and darkness in which we must overcome in order to move on, for if we don't we will suffer the consequences which is reliving this pain as if it had just occurred every time we are faced with the memory of those who trespassed against us. The act of forgiving is not an easy one and therefore it is understood that the act of Loving those who trespass against us is Divine, for it was the last act Christ performed before He transitioned into eternal Life. It is said that forgiveness is not for the weak of heart nor is unconditional Love, and this is why Loving thy neighbor is a commandment for if it was easy we would not have to be commanded to do as such, for we may say we forgive and love but is it without conditions. Until we truly forgive and love unconditionally we will remain stuck in a period of pain, darkness and shadows unable to see the Light of God or walk His path without blinders and baggage. Release the bondage that comes with holding on to the act of being unforgiving and grasp hold of the unconditional Love God has placed within you. Be Still And Know That I Am.
