FORGETTING AFTER FORGIVING: The Miracle of Forgiveness.
When you stand in the place of prayer, forgive if you have any grudge or sin against any body, so that your father which in heaven may forgive you of your sins too, and give answers to your prayer.
This shows a great extent to which forgiveness is valuable to us and our heavenly father. It helps us to have a peaceful life.
Life is too short to be lived in malice and hatred. Going through the course of life, meeting different people in different areas of life with diverse background, it is unavoidable for us to be offended, hurt, make mistakes or wrong people at times. It maybe in our relationships, work, family lives, business dealings and so on. You might have been condemned, criticized, disappointed or spoken against unjustly. In whatever area it may be, having a forgiving heart is the best medicine to your health and the real solution to your problem. It may seem difficult, but its possible through God's grace and help, for He wants to always forgive, no matter the amount of sins, or degree of offense committed against us. You may ask: can we truly forget after forgiving?
The answer is NO, in the actual sense, when a person is wronged, since he is “human”, he will always recall the incidence since it has already been stored in his memory. For instance, if a younger brother conspires against his elderly brother to loot him of his money or goods, and then, he later got to know that it was his brother that was responsible for what happened, do you think such an occurrence would ever be erased from his memory? Certainly not! After discovering the cause of his loss, the reaction he puts forward will tell truly, if indeed he has forgiven his brother or not. When he claims to have forgiven him, does he react in a negative way whenever he sets his eyes on his brother, based on what happened?
For the fact that such a thing would never be erased from his memory, the attitude displayed will tell if he has forgotten about the incidence, if he reacts positively, by not bringing to mind what the brother has done, and does not allow the memory of what happened to influence his action, striving to relate well and not with a grudge for what occurred, then, it really show that he has forgotten after forgiving.
When we forgive and forget, we feel free in the inside of us, all our body system begin to function effectively due to the free flow of the body tissues. Spiritually also, when we stand to offer prayers to God, it is as an incense ascending to heaven which brings out the sweet savor to his nostril, bringing good answers to our supplications, health to our navel, marrow to our bones and peace to which transcends all understanding to our minds.
