An Often Overlooked Consequence of Unforgiveness — 15 Comments

  1. I love this message. For many years I had the problem of unforgiveness to the point that it was weighing me down. I’ve learnt to forgive most of the time but Satan is waiting eagerly for me to fail. I’m certain that I could improve in this area which with the Lord’s help I will continue to forgive.
    It’s not always easy but it helps making our load lighter.
    Thank you for this reminder of something extremely important in my Christian walk.

    • Thank you very much, Sandra, for another wonderful – and real – comment!
      I, too, struggle with unforgiveness. I will pause to say a prayer for you. And I ask that you PLEASE pray for me as well!

  2. I’ll make it a point to keep you in my prayers and that you’ll be able to continue in your mission to spread positivity in a starving world.

  3. Sheryl, you always have a great word that speaks to my heart. I’ve been struggling with unforgiivenes towards someone that is part of family and i considered a friend. Their selfish behavior took over a special celebration. Now the memories of what was supposed to have been memorable and special, are tainted with this behavior and some of the uncomfortable moments were done towards me without coming to me or being talked over. To save the relationship, my husband and I had to agree on everything. During this time I was also hurt by my dear one, I’m praying for healing and for the Lord to help me forgive all. You have encouraged me to go and look up scriptures on forgiveness and redemption, I know that as I forgive and release; the Lord will redeem this special milestone in our marriage and I will look back and only see what the Lord has done.
    I love you dear friend.

    • Hello, dear Lorena. I SO understand. I absolutely relate. And I am so very sorry for your pain.
      Let’s pray for each other as we both seek to forgive as Christ has forgiven us in every relationship so that we can, as you beautifully said, “look back and only see what the Lord has done”!
      I love you too, dear friend.

  4. Lorena, sometimes it seems impossible to forgive someone who was definitely in the wrong.
    One reason in favor of forgiveness may help you to find balance in your life. Don’t let that person bring you down so that the hurt lingers.
    Prayers for the ability to forgive and make your burden lighter.

  5. Love, love your comment “God’s power eclipses Satan” “Every, Single, Time”. I’m so glad that “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world!” Thank God that our Lord forgives us every, single time when we confess our sin before him. It’s not always easy, but He never said it would be! I’ve had to deal with this a time or two, even forgiving others who are not very easy to contend with, but I’m humbled, as neither am I always easy to get along with either! Thanks Sheryl.️

    • I posted a response to your comment, Kim, but it appears to have disappeared. So let’s try this again …
      Amen! Praise God for His mercy, which is new every morning. And praise God for His grace to forgive others. AND for those who forgive us even when we’re not easy to get along with.
      Thank you again, Kim, for stopping by Today Can Be Different.
