How to Forgive Yourself A Summer Series, Day 8

10 Reasons you should forgive yourself.

Reason 5

Forgiving helps you love others. A possible reason you do not forgive yourself is because you are so disappointed in what you did. Sin is the only thing that brings about self-hatred. It is normal to love yourself, and when you love yourself, it’s easier to love others.

There is a certain level of gratification you receive when you know you have been forgiven and when you know you have forgiven others. You feel “clean, washed in the blood of the Lamb”. That’s such a good feeling and when that weight is no longer there, the freedom that rushes into our soul breathes new life into our hearts and minds. You look at others through a new lens of compassion and love because the Lord extended that to you so graciously.

Your eyes are opened to truly see others and the hurt they are bound in. Your heart gives way to compassion on a level you didn’t have before. Your love for them has increased and now you pray for them, encourage them and lift them up during the storms of their lives. Before you know it, you have birthed a ministry out of the messes of your past.

God is so good. He’s like that you know… to take a bad and horrible situation and turn it around for your good. What you came out of is now the platform for ministry to aid others when you see them going through the same thing you experienced and overcame. Praise the Lord!
