Love Forgives

Love keeps no record of right and wrong. And Love is not foolish. I learned the hard way to not allow people or events live on in my mind rent free. Releasing them brings freedom! Forgiving is not condoning, but rather forgiving is allowing yourself to step away from the pain.
I doubt that any of us will get through life unscathed, without experiencing a traumatic betrayal. If you will allow yourself to forgive and release, you will find new levels of maturity and growth waiting for you. Wisdom often is the byproduct of suffering. The wisest and most solid, mature people that I know have walked through deep suffering. They also have an emerged, releasing the pain and holding on to only the wisdom drawn from it.
“Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.”
Ephesians 4:31-32
