40 Days of Forgiveness – Day 23 How Do I Know I Have Forgiven?
I like a Sunday message that is short and sweet.
How do I know I have forgiven another person?
Quite simply, when you think of that person hate and anger may have left you.
You might begin to see their actions and behavior were a pattern they learned.
You could feel emotions of sorrow for them now instead of anger.
You no longer feel like the victim but an equal or even superior to them.
You might realize you are both a part of the same humanness.
You might find yourself sending them well wishes for their healing.
You might notice a gap or hole has been filled in you that was empty before.
You might feel light and refreshed.
You might have the sudden realization that life can begin again and the choice is all yours.
You might think this forgiveness thing is all right with you.
