2009 is here. And so are the lingering effects of unforgiveness.

Heart Disease (both physical and spiritual)
High Blood Pressure
Anxiety and Depression( and other mental disorders)

and the list goes on..........

Make a list of those who have hurt or offended you. Make a list of those you stay away from because of your anger towards them. Make a list of those you dont trust.

AND THEN.......................
Pray to be released from YOUR bondage to those events and those people.
Pray for blessings in their life.
Pray for them everyday until your heart changes- from depising them, to caring for them.

Hi Ma'am,

I do really believed for what you've said here. I was once been angry w/someone and his family. Due to the reason that I want to totally move on in my life, as a Christian I sought help from an evangelist friend. For almost 3 years of having that hatred in my heart, which I know I have sinned, I asked forgiveness to God and decided to let go of those bad feelings and to forgive those people who've once put me in great shame, who've one caused me into great troubles and the reason of my miserable life. Now I witnessed how God worked for me to change and heal the wounds in my heart. May the Lord God bless those people who're hurting and will learn to forgive those who caused them pains...In Jesus name, jane

Sometimes I must remember that forgiveness is not necessary unless some one has wronged me.  I have been one of the one's who say "oh, but you don't know what that person did to me"/  What I need to remember is that it takes too much energy to hate and to hold on to resentments.  I do not have to be a doormat in order to forgive. It can be a very freeing experience--and sometimes I need to forgive myself among others.
