I got these "Four Promises of Forgiveness" from the book "Lists to Live by" by Alice Gray, Steve Stephens and John Van Diest.
I'm passing this list on because one of the major blocks to healing is that we sometimes hold on to what has hurt us while our loved ones were dying. We need to let these hurts go and if the person is a family member or friend this list will help us. If we never have to see the person again still forgive and let it go – not for them but for yourself.
The Four Promise Of Forgiveness
- I will no longer dwell on this incident.
- I will not bring up this incident again and use it against you.
- I will not talk to others about this incident.
- I will not allow this incident to stand between us or hinder our relationship.
