How to Forgive Yourself A Summer Series, Day 11

10 Reasons you should forgive yourself.

Reason 8

Your own physical health will be at stake.

Medical research shows unforgiveness literally hurts your heart, which in turn, affects your entire body. Holding grudges, unforgiveness, anger, or bitterness leads to many health issues, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, breast cancer and other ailments. Anger and rage builds up within our emotions and we fly off the handle at any little thing that goes against our grain.

I don’t want you to think that if you are already experiencing some of these conditions, this is the reason. But with some people, this could be the case. If you are holding all of this anger against yourself, it then becomes double trouble for your body. The Mayo Clinic Staff advises, “If you don’t practice forgiveness, you will be the one who pays most dearly.” By embracing forgiveness, you also embrace peace, hope, gratitude, and joy. Consider how forgiveness will lead you down the path to physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Forgiveness is unique and gives depth to the kingdom of God because everything within us says “no.” God is calling us to “grow-up” as His children and do this. Don’t wait for them to be sorry. Don’t wait for things to be fair. Fairness does not live here, but Jesus does! Step up and be the one who is a true Christian and live in total freedom. Live with a healthy heart, a healthy mind and healthy emotions!
