Forgiveness is for you.

Our egos tell us that we should not be treated a certain way and under no circumstances should we let anyone get away with it. On the one hand it is very true that we deserve to be treated properly, but in every case is the maltreatment due to maliciousness? Is it due to a genuine, pointed attempt to hurt us? We have to examine every case and determine the motive, and many times we may find that the motives are usually immaturity, ignorance, deflection due to a personal struggle, etc. Oftentimes the crime against us is not about us but rather about the issues the offender has that would seep into anyone who comes in that person’s path. And to flip it, how many times have we done or said something that was not truly indicative of who we are yet expected others to understand our intentions?

The Forgiveness Detox (a short but detailed list)

The forgiveness detox will continuously push the poop out of you until you’re fully clean. I needn’t get graphic here; however, I have to say, when you start forgiving, God will bring to your remembrance some stuff you’d forgotten about completely–old wounds and injuries, scars and even keloids. You begin to feel and the stuff you’ve carried for years, even stuff you’ve forgotten you carried, moving its way through your spirit. When I do my detox through juicing, I make sure that I’m always near a bathroom. Likewise, stay close to God as you go through your forgiveness detox. He can sooth your heart as it empties itself of all the spiritual excrement of unforgiveness. Trust me, those moments will keep coming and you will keep emptying yourself of the unhealthy grudges that have slowed down your walk and drained you of your energy. You’ll look back and see some unsightly, smelly, pieces of toxic burdens you’ve carried, but once they are released you will feel better.
