You want to, but you can’t. You want to release the person, but you can’t. It seems to grip you in every part of your being.
We use the term “unforgiveness” to describe a daunting inability to forgive another person in your heart. Unforgiveness holds you hostage and keeps you from moving forward with your daily activities. It may even build strongholds in your life with a demonic element that won’t let go.
When you release the person in forgiveness, you yourself become free. You release yourself from bondage. Remember that forgiveness can be immediate, but trust must be rebuilt over time. It won’t be as simple as returning to business as usual. Give it time. Allow time for trust to be rebuilt.
Yes forgiveness is a must. Then, take time to rebuild trust in the relationship.
