To find emotional healing and reconciliation, may we each move from God forgives I don’t, to God forgives, and in his power, so do I.


Do you have a hard time forgiving someone who has really hurt you? Have you ever found yourself saying or thinking to yourself, Well, God forgives I don’t?

God’s Perspective on Forgiveness

Forgiveness is a central theme in Christianity. God knows it’s a way to let go of negative emotions and find healing and reconciliation.

From God’s perspective forgiveness is understood as being available to all who sincerely seek it. Through genuine remorse, repentance, and a commitment to change, we can find forgiveness for our actions, no matter how grave. God forgives all sins, and we, in turn, are encouraged to forgive those who have hurt us.

The Story of Joseph of Egypt: A Powerful Example of Forgiveness in Action

The story of Joseph of Egypt is a powerful illustration of forgiveness in action. Despite the injustices he faced, Joseph ultimately chose to forgive his brothers and reconcile with them. This act of forgiveness allowed for healing and the restoration of relationships.

Emotional Healing: Choosing to Forgive Brings Freedom

The call to forgive those who have hurt us and to replace a desire for revenge with love is a Christian principle that promotes personal growth and emotional well-being. Choosing to forgive can indeed lead to a sense of freedom and the ability to move forward in life without the burden of resentment.

God Forgives I Don’t or God Forgives and So Do I?

I know that forgiveness is a deeply personal process and can take time. It’s not always easy, especially in cases of severe hurt, but it can lead to profound positive changes in our lives. May we each move from God forgives I don’t, to God forgives, and in his power, so do I.
