When you forgive someone often times the offender will assume that the act is forgotten. You don’t bring it up anymore. You are to not be upset. Just forget about it. And if you bring it up you hear “you haven’t gotten over that yet?” Just because you forgive does not mean you forget. You will never forget what someone said, did or how they made you feel. You might heal to a point where the offense doesn’t bother you, but you never forget. The offender may also think just because you forgave them that it excuses what they did to you. No, it doesn’t. You forgave them for yourself so you are at peace and do not carry that burden anymore. They are not off the hook. Some people may never be held accountable for their actions but do not let that destroy your inner peace. You know in your heart that they are wrong, but forgive them anyway and move on.
God is replacing what you lost last season with so much better this season. Let us use this time to connect with God. Focus on what really matters. Get right within. This is a time of renewal. We are no longer serving where we are not needed. We are letting everything that ways us down go. Refresh your mind. Rest your body. Renew your spirit. Regain a gentle heart and peaceful soul. Reclaim yourself. Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anybody can start today and make a new ending.
