UNFORGIVENESS? YOUR CHOICE

I wore a jumpsuit to church yesterday and after everything, I came home and had to take it off. I noticed something while taking it off; if you own a jumpsuit or knows anyone that works in construction and owns one, you will know that there is only one way to take it off by unzipping/unbuttoning it. The hands come out first and there is no two ways about that, and if it is long sleeved just like mine you my have to push your chest out causing both scapula bones appear inverted giving the impression of sloppy shoulders just like in Cleidocranial dysplasia except it is reversed! I have totally no idea if that makes any sense but just try and picture yourself getting out of a jumpsuit, that might help. Now, unforgiveness is like that, feels like you are stuck in a jumpsuit and can only get out when you are ready. Understand that in a long sleeved jumpsuit no one can help you out of it except you. I want you to picture a jumpsuit made of iron or anything heavy really because unforgiveness is a burden you shoulder for as long as you decide not to let go of it, you carry it all around with you.

I know an Igbo proverb that says if you hold someone down, for as long as you hold them down you stay down to keep them down (paraphrased). Loose them and let them go. I know you are hurting, I know they did you wrong, I know it’s not fair but God is saying to you today to let go of the bitterness and set them free, set yourself free! If you do, just like stepping out of the jumpsuit after your hands are out, you will step out of the pain that comes with unforgiveness and step into the life of Joy and peace God promised. I know you are thinking you can’t do it alone, that is okay because Jesus is right there waiting to lend a helping hand only if you ask Him to. But, remember the saying forgive and forget? Tough isn’t it? Today i say to you it is totally okay to forgive and not forget as forgiving and totally forgetting i feel is only a character of God. Forgive and don’t forget, learn what it is that God wants you to learn from the experience and forge ahead BUT!!! if you remember it, let not your heart be bitter about it; if you attain this level of remembering without any bitterness then i think it is safe to say you have forgiven and forgotten!

I’ll tell you a story my dad told me about a farmer who had to cut down a tree with an axe. Hour after hour he kept hitting the tree with the axe that was blunt and we all know that a blunt axe cannot do much to a tree. A man said to him “Sir hang on a minute, i think your axe is blunt why don’t i sharpen it for you?” the farmer without stopping replied “i am sorry but i am in a hurry, I don’t have time to sharpen my axe!” Many of us are like the farmer, God is lending us a hand but we go like “chill God i gat this” trust me you don’t! Take it to God today and ask him to give you a forgiving heart.

By unforgiveness, we imprison ourselves in an iron jumpsuit, forgiveness is a choice and a tough one. I know it is difficult but daily the Lord asked us to pray “forgive us our sins, as we forgive the ones who sin against us”. Ephesians 4:32 says be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving just as in Christ God forgave you.

You may say but they were not compassionate or kind towards me and i say do not let their actions towards you determine your reaction towards them! Just think, what will Jesus do? Stay blessed.

This topic is too broad so i divided it into different parts, the next part will be coming soon.

Thank you for stopping by.
