How to Forgive When It’s Not Easy

“Forgiveness is not ‘act like it never happened’.” – Carol Davis

Forgiveness isn’t easy to do, especially when the other person isn’t sorry. But knowing Jesus says you must forgive – no strings attached. Carol, Tricia and Kelly talk about forgiveness on this episode of Girl Talk Podcast. 

While you can’t control your feelings, you can control what takes up residence in your thought life. When you allow thoughts of unforgiveness to take up space in your mind, it will turn into bitterness and will only hurt your own heart!

How to begin the process of forgiveness:

1. Pray about it. A lot.

2. Seek outside counsel through a Christian counselor or someone who can speak God’s truth into your life in a loving way.

3. Pray for the other person’s heart and wellbeing.

4. Be obedient to God even when your feelings are leading you away from forgiveness.

5. Remember it’s a process and you are human. Give it to God daily!

“Forgiveness is not you deciding when their punishment is over.” – Carol Davis
