Going along  with my friend’s Liz post titled “Flap Your Wings”, here is an affirmation statement that one can practice for love and forgiveness towards ourselves and others:

 

I love you; I bless you; I appreciate you; I forgive you; and I release you to your highest good.

I am love; I am blessed; I am appreciated; I am forgiven; and I am released to the highest good.

You love yourself; you bless yourself; you appreciate yourself; and you release yourself to your highest good

I love myself; I bless myself; I appreciate myself; I forgive myself; and I release myself to my highest good

FORGIVENESS, bringing the BEST OF US…

November 22, 2010 1 comment

At some point in our lives, we all have been wronged by someone. Being emotionally bruised can have serious consequences in our life. Although it is clear that when people attack us for no apparent reason, it is due to personal issues that he/she is going through, we can all agree that still is really difficult to let things go and forgive. The truth is that for the rest of our lives we will be dealing with difficult people, sometimes we might be difficult ourselves, and that’s OK, it is part of life and our nature. Therefore, learning to forgive and move on is THE MOST IMPORTANT SKILL we must excelled in this school called LIFE.    

When we learn to forgive the people who wronged us, that’s when we bring THE BEST OF US to the world. We will encounter people in our lives that will be determined to bring us down, again, it might not be personal, but still God will put them in our lives as an opportunity to bring either the BEST or the WORST of us. That’s our every day CHOICE. Every crisis in our lives, we should see it as an opportunity for us to show God and the world the BEST of us.

Forgiving does not mean that you are excusing the behavior of the attacker. It simply means that you shall not let them dictate your destiny. God and the universal order will take care of them. You have bigger things to do in this life than holding on to resentments. Replaying in your head what they’ve done to you WILL PREVENT YOU FROM FULFILLING YOUR DESTINY, FROM FULFILLING YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE, and will prevent you from enjoying the NOW. Do not allow them to make you miss the Great Future God has for you. They might not deserve to be forgiven, but you DO 😉

Now the question is, how can I do that? It looks really nice and easy in writing, but what can I actually do to learn to forgive. Here it comes, very very EASY. TRUST GOD!!!

The brilliant and very wise Joel Osteen states in his teachings, “God will make your WRONGS RIGHTS, He is a FAIR GOD, He will repay your wrongs with double RIGHTS.” “FAITH activates GOD, FEAR activates the Enemy.”

Trust GOD; surrender yourself to him. Acknowledge that you have control over NOTHING. If you really reflect on this very statement, you will find that lack of control, what is commonly perceived as uncertainty and anxiety, when you are truly ONE with GOD, lack of control is in fact extremely comforting. You no longer have anything to worry about; God will fight your battles.

He knows who has hurt you, he knows who has made you cry, when you’ve been ill, he’s been there with you, holding your hand and crying with you. He will restore you, he will ease your pain, you must simply trust HIM. No one better than him knows about PAIN.  

Jesus forgave and prayed for people who betrayed him for a few coins, people who were jealous and intimidated by his knowledge and enlightening teachings, people who abused him physically and verbally. Is there really anything that we cannot forgive?       

 The most dangerous aspect of not knowing how to forgive, is to become what you hate. We shall not allow that, we shall be the change, we shall be AWARE and be present in the NOW, learn from the past, and be optimistic of the future.

Forgiving brings the BEST of US and brings us closer to GOD. Even in your darkest hours, trust GOD, trust the plan he has for you. Simply always do your best in every situation and let GOD worried about the rest. When you truly trust HIM, you’ll be amazed on how obvious he will demonstrate you he’s been listening to you and how well he will take care of you. God blessed 😉
