Just want to say UNFORGIVENESS if you struggle with that? Wow! I know from experience the devil enjoys mess with you! Lord,you know me ..
Let's try all we can NOT call our brother or our sister bad names because it really does injure "the body" of Christ, here we are a family.. yes!
In a family we going to sometimes, get discouraged but, that is the time to reach way down and try to be encouraging instead of say things to further add bad medicine to already bad situation
If our Lord Jesus see the way we talk to one another..hmmm
I wonder how he feels to see his children fighting instead of "building one another up in the faith" ...
Tearing down strongholds..

No because I saw the power of forgiveness when I forgave my father for pointing a gun at me when I was 21 and tried to kill me and my boyfriend one summer night in 1983.
It took me years to heal from that, but once I did, I went back to meet with my father in 1998 and I became a friend to him...turned out when he was dying, I was the only friend he had and I spent every day in the hospital with him, helping him vomit from the chemo and right before he died, he opened his blue eyes and I said, "Dad, everything is going to be okay, you're going to be okay." Three days later he died. The power of forgiveness is so very powerful - it releases YOU, not the other person, they'll still suffer the consequences of their sin.

"Do you hold any unforgiveness against anyone ?" No.
Why? It serves no constructive purpose for me or the unforgiven. Unforgiveness is an operation in futility, personally, I choose not to operate that way.
Forgiveness, like unforgiveness, reflects a choice, I simply choose that which serves the greater good.

Good morning! I have always found it easy to forgive others and have worked hard at doing this all my life. The last few years have been a struggle for me, however, as I have experienced a string of incidents which have caused me depression, loneliness, and grief.I am trying to do many things to improve my prayer life and my Bible study, hoping that this will help me cleanse the anger from my unforgiving heart. Please pray for me to have a forgiving heart as Jesus did when He hung upon the cross and asked for forgiveness for those who had wronged Him to the point of taking His own life. What a wonderful gift to forgive as He did and teaches us to try to do. Let us pray for one another that we can forgive each other as He did and still does!

Nail on the head!
Think carefully about the things you think. There might be one or two things you overlooked.
I was talking to a man. He was telling me, how people are always taking things from him. You know stealing! Then he started telling me about God judgment. The things that will happen, not because of him, but of God.
Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal?
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
For the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof.
I was doing the same thing!

I hold no unforgiveness against others, having been fortunate in having few negative acts against me. But I have a MAJOR problem forgiving MYSELF. Even after I have confessed a sin to God I continue to condemn myself even for decades. Is there any scripture that could show me how to forgive myself and free my mind, or is it normal to continue feeling awful after being forgiven by God?
---Geraldine on 3/13/10|
I did at one time. However, it isn't an option to forgive others. It's a command. We are promised Gods forgiveness "as" we forgive others.
---Shary on 3/13/10|
No. However, I can not say I never had, and I hope I will never will!
"For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." (St. Matthew, 6:14-15).

Good question, Alan.
One thing many people (I among them) have learned: forgiveness is like peeling an onion sometimes.
I think that the most important thing is the desire and intention to forgive, which are acts of the will.
---Cluny on 3/12/10|
I or any one can't have unforgiveness in their heart toward another.
I & you have to forgive in order to be forgiven. I believe that's the way God set it up.
