Choosing It

"Those who forgive are those who choose to forgive. There's nothing automatic, unintentional, or happenstance about forgiveness.

It is a choice and an act of the will.

Those who choose to forgive are those who decide to give up resentment and the desire to punish. They have a willingness to relinquish all claims to exact a penalty for an offense. They actually cancel the debt they believe another person owes them.

Forgiveness enables a person to release buried anger, resentment, bitterness, shame, grief, regret, guilt, hate, and other toxic emotions that hide deep in the soul and make a person ill - both emotionally and physically. A permeating sense of peace that blankets a person's entire being commonly accompanies the cathartic act of true forgiveness." - Colbert

Choose to release yourself from the bondage of unforgiveness ~

"Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you" - Colossians 3:13 (The Message).
