A doctor said "it is not about what you are eating but what is eating you up".

Unforgiveness had eaten deep into the life changing parts of some people thereby leaving injuries that brings out invisible bleeding from within.

Unforgiveness has become one of the plagues that have seriously and steadily ravaging deep down the souls of many in our present World. Not only the world but also within the body of Christ.

It antonym; forgiveness has become an enemy to many as it become one of the hardest if not the hardest thing they will ever think of engaging themselves with.

To a man who is suffering from pains of betrayal, desertion or denial, he ensure that he distance himself so far away from the word forgiveness. The gravity of his resolution even become greater when those excruciating pangs are coming from people he trusted and have so much hope on.

It become so painful to dealt with as the trust he have for those loved ones become shattered.Hence he tends to view life as deceitful as the water from the brooks which is swifter than the flash itself.

He tends to isolate himself from the things the natural he is fond of doing thereby leading to internal bleeding of regrets from within.

The basic truth is that there is no way the flesh to the flesh won't offend each other inasmuch as they are not the same entity there must be an individual uniqueness which brings about difference.

Don't be deceived, no two people can live together without having one or two differences to settle but what differentiates or stand as a mark out sign is "Ability to let go".

Yes, Ability to let go off the sources of the pain, pangs, betrayal or torture brings the  solution. This is what makes some couple lived together for forty, fifty and to years that death will separate their mortal bodies from each other without having a broken marriage. Ability to let go off offenses makes many live peacefully together  as though they never have differences they settle.

Not that you won't have differences but there must be deliberate effort to study and understand the weakness or odds of the other person (s) involve. By so doing, you will not only be free from the plague called Unforgiveness but will have peace within and around.

Which offense(s) should I forgive?

All. No stone should be left unturned.

The instruction is that even though we are offended or wronged either deliberately or otherwise, we should find a place in our heart to forgive and forget the sources or causes of those pains/betrayal/rejection.

If the Lord God Almighty can take us to himself despite our filthiness, stains or human mistakes. We are also expected to follow God in such like manner.

The perception of those betrayals, pain, embarassment or even disappointment have a great role to play in our lives either for the best or for the worst.

Yes the hurt can be so excruciating, remembering those scenarios can be annoying. Nevertheless forgive and forget.

Forgiveness might not be as easy as it is being penned down here but anything attainable by God is always accessible.

If God is asking you to forgive then it is possible regardless of the gravity of the offense.

This time around,you are to let go off your right. It is not even about your right this time but what matters is that love and peace that forgiveness brings.

Humanly speaking the person should be the one apologising right? Yes.. but still make a move to go and ask for forgiveness and ensure you already forgive the person before going to settle the differences.

Why must i forgive?

1. *Unforgiveness brings limitations:* It is an indicator that attracts limitations upon the life of man and this was why the word of God admonishes us to go and settle our differences before we even bring him offering.

It brings limitations to prayers, abilities, attainability of blessings, breakthrough, visitations and the likes. So to avoid limitations you must forgive and forget.

Remember the word "For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly. Father will also forgive you." 

To enjoy God unlimitless accessible goodies, you must forgive and let go off that offense.

 2. *Unforgiveness is an act of disobedience:* An act to disobedience of God's word which says Luke 17:3-4 " *Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him"* KJV

if you are not forgiving those that offend you or wrong you it indicate that you are a disobedient Son/ Daughter.

Since it was in James 1:22  "But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves"

 Are you a son of deception? 

I guess no one would give a "yes" to the above question but something must be done in order to validate your answer.

Since you are not a Son of deception. You must Forgive.

3. *Unforgiveness brings hatred and unrest:* Unforgiveness is an hatred activator and where it exist there is always lack of peace of the mind. And when the mind goes wrong, everything about the man goes wrong. This was why God demonstrated his love for us through forgiveness of our sins by sending his only begotten son to the world to die for the redemption of mankind. He forgives our trespasses, demonstrated his love for us by giving us peace (Jesus).

So to be a radiator of God's love and to enjoy  peace with both man and God, you must forgive and forget.

Bishop Oyedepo said that even before someone offend him, he already forgive that person in advance. *"Forgiveness in advance".* 

What a grace!! So before the offender comes begging him he had already forgiven the person. You can also join this train.

Your rage will only raze things down within a spur of the moment.

If you are living in view of the injuries of the past, it is high time you took this antidote called forgiveness so that those faults won't become your flaws.

According to *2nd Corinthians 2:10-11,* Apostle Paul identified unforgiveness as a scheme of the devil. So in order not to fall prey of the devices of the devil, you should make a resolution to forgive that Aunty you haven't greet for a while now.

You should make a resolution now to settle all differences you have with people.

How can I forgive and forget?

it is not just all about forgiving. it requires a great deal of determination and commitment to forgive and forget those pains that have been inflicted upon your flesh but it is worthy of note that drawing away from that committed only draws you closer to the presence of the jury.

It entails that you make it a deliberate effort not a do or die affair.

Do it just like a demonstration of God's love for mankind and then you are good to go.

It is not just about forgiving but it entails that you surrender all your ego so as not to hinder that bold step.
