To be in love is to trust
To trust is to let go
To let go is to forgive
To forgive is to embrace
To embrace is to accept
To accept is to lend a hand
To lend a hand is to give your heart
To give your heart is to engage your mind
To engage your mind is to employ your strength
To employ your strength is refusing to quit
Refusing to quit is to stand firm
To stand firm is to withstand pressure
To withstand pressure is to hold on to what you believe in
What you believe in can be your driving force or drag force
What you withstand may lead to your uplift or downfall
What you refuse to quit may bring you good or bad
Where you employ your strenght may lead to a negative or positive outcome
By now you get my point ,every action we decide to take has an advantage or disadvantage.But there is one action listed above that depicits strength but is sometimes taken as weakness but when properly looked into is a sign of meekness.
What on earth is meekness ? ‘meekness is strength under control ‘—JOYCE MEYER…it is having the ability to retaliate or ability to do wrong to someone but choosing not to because that is the right thing to do and i would also add only the strong can keep their strength under control.
It is one of the very few actions that doesn’t have a disadvantage but it is very hard to ,what is this action ? one may ask ,I am talking of forgiveness.You may also say well it has a disadvantage because the person would hurt you again ,well ye but if you ask me …did i just hear someone’s mind say they didn’t ask me?
Sorry but i’d tell you anyway ,forgiving someone that hurts us will be very difficult and painful but to feel better that is one of the major solution .We may decide to hurt the person back ,but how much and how many times do we think we could hurt the person to feel better ?
We never actually feel better instead we feel worse than ever ,Un forgiveness leads to bitterness and hatred which begins to spread as wild fire hurting people We never intended to hurt .Like i said it is a very difficult thing to do and it may take time for the scar ,pain and hurt to go away but only the strong choose to forgive because of its difficulty and the weak choose to pay back because that is one easy thing to do.
Let us choose the difficult way today ,the path only chosen by the strong
PRAY, FORGIVE AND LET GO
GOD BLESS YOU .
