The Four Promises of Forgiveness

Nothing in this world is more stressful then the death of a loved one.  At this time emotions are running high and things that may not have bothered us instead become a major point of disagreement.

Yes people say things that are hurtful or thoughtless but they just don’t understand how sensitive and emotional unbalanced we are.  In return we may say things that we would never have said if we weren’t in so much pain.

I’m passing on “The Four Promises of Forgiveness” by Ken Sande, the Peacemaker

1.  I will no longer dwell on this incident.

2.  I will not bring up this incident again or use it against you.

3.  I will not talk to others about this incident.

4.  I will not allow this incident to stand between us or hinder our relationship.

Forgiveness is a two way street and I know that to not forgive is not move forward.  In the end it doesn’t really matter who is right and who is wrong because forgiveness is a gift you give yourself .  It will emotionally free you from more disappointment and pain so you can focus on healing.
