How can someone live life when they are stuck in the past? The answer: they cannot. Living life has to do with accepting what has happened and moving forward.
Live for the day that the Lord has given you! Today!
John, a friend of mine, a dear friend, told me once that we can never get tomorrow back. I meditated on this statement and agree with him 100 percent!
Forgiving people allows you to move forward, even if they don’t know you forgave them. It is between you and God. If someone hurt you, did something unacceptable to you, he doesn’t have to know that you forgive him.
However, this is the only way to live life to the fullest. I have forgiven many people who did not deserve to be forgiven. Why? Because living life is more important than they are. They did not give me life, God did. Therefore, who are they to take it away from me? Just who are these people who we cannot forgive? Are they that damn important that they can ruin the rest of your life? Hell no!
Not everyone’s life is to appreciate other people and why they are here.
So this is my mission statement … Don’t tell these idiots that you forgive them, but forgive them in your heart.
I promise you, from what I have learned from the word of God, bible doctrine, that life is better when you do!
Focus on your goals and children, if you have any, and move forward living every day to its fullest!
As for the idiots and people who don’t give two shits about you, forget ’em!
Remember John’s words …
We can never get today back, so live every day with a smile, do your best, and go to sleep every night knowing that you are at peace with the Lord.
Love in Christ,
