“How dare him?”
“It shouldn’t have happened to me, I didn’t deserve such after giving my time. To think, I had experienced it all from family, this again?” Doyin lamented.
Do you want to know what Doyin went through? I don’t think it’s necessary, that would hurt too much maybe. But years have passed by, as she been able to let it go?
Doyin narrates her story to a youth congregation ;
I reported him to God.
We sometimes share our hurts with friends, of course who wouldn’t? But does it repair our torn heart? Hardly!
One way in getting freedom from the hurt is to stop talking about the hurt to others
God gives you directives on how to when you report the person to God than human,the best therapist is God
Firstly, you have to have understanding of all you go through, It’s the will of God concerning you, not to be hurt though but for you to learn amidst other things.
Have you tried praying for them?
There’s a rule that has ministered to me over the years” The 70×7 rule”
70×7, I got to understand that it’s not as subsequent hurts come but as you feel the pains over a particular hurt.
It doesn’t go away with just deciding to forgive someone or praying about it. It’s a conscious effort to keep forgiving as you feel the pain till it fades away. Of course it will go away before the 490th time.
Even as Christ was being nailed to the cross, he didnt have aneasthia not to feel the pain, he felt it for a long time and still kept saying “father forgive, for they know not what they do”.
So, you must come to a point that it’s established its not easy but while being pained for as long as it is, recite peace into your heart
Take a break, don’t because you have prayed, let your guard down again, create a positive closure while you settle with God and absorb His promises for you, recite his purpose in your hearing.
Be at peace with all men means you are at peace with God when it comes to that person’s matter, you longer fight God and at peace when you come across the person. If it’s not necessary to be close again ,be sure to be at peace with them.
How do you know you have forgiven someone?
– You find yourself praying for them especially if they are close to you and their burdens hit you.
– You are at peace even when their names pops up.
– You are able to celebrate them when it’s necessary without grudges.
But can you forget the pain even when you feel that you have forgiven them?
Forgiving and forgetting is another series, is it possible to forget?
