My Bubble: I Am Quick To Forgive!

Forgiveness does not come easy for most of us. It is only natural for us to recoil in self-protection when we get hurt. Most people are not going to have an outpouring of mercy, grace and forgiveness, that's for sure!

I am no exception but in most cases, I'd always choose to walk away quietly. I will remove myself from these negative influences. After all, forgiveness will not necessarily lead to a healed relationship. Moreover, even it does, things are just not the same anymore! Forgiving is easier but to forget?

I have a thorn in my side that is growing more prickly each day. However, each time I complained about it, I am influxed with messages of forgiveness ... somehow somewhere the Lord is telling me the obvious!

I know forgiveness is a choice and I have managed it many times before. This time should not be any different but I guess I am struggling because the person is hard to be ignored when she's staying under my roof right now.

My consolation ... we're parting ways in less than 2 months! So close my eyes ... ignore ignore ignore and I want to tell myself "I am quick to forgive!"

"Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. 
Forgive as the Lord forgave you." 
 ~ Colossians 3:13
