5 Fruit For a Blessed Fall
page Forgive (and Forget)
“When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.”
Forgiving, according to editor Therese Borchard, is an eight step process.
1, Acknowledge the problem. What is the root of the disagreement? You might be surprised.
2. Don’t just share your dispute with the individual, tell them how it makes you feel.
3. Switch places. It boils down to the old wise saying that says, “Put yourself in their shoes.”
4. It is what it is. Accept it. Don’t wait for an apology or understanding. The quicker you find healing, an actual apology isn’t necessary, just an extra special bonus.
5. Don’t dwell. Move on. Rekindling flames just builds bigger fires.
6. Don’t let a bad situation win. Take the experience and become a better person.
7. Let it go. A repeat of step 5 is in order here.
8. Forgive. Forgive by faith, whether you want to or not. Trust God that the forgiveness will be complete.
