Forgiveness is key after an affair in your relationship.
It’s impossible to move on with unforgiveness.
When we don’t forgive, we are setting ourselves up to be miserable.
Oh, let me tell you, my initial reaction to the affair in my marriage had nothing to do with forgiveness.
I was hurt, therefore I wanted him to hurt.
Nicole wanted revenge !
This is a human reaction ( or at least it was mine ).
These were emotions and feelings I could not get past without prayer. As I began to reflect on my transgressions
and how thankful I was for my sins being forgiven, it was much easier to forgive. My faith tells me that I must forgive.
If we don’t forgive, we will not be forgiven. It works two ways.
“forgive us of our trespasses, as we forgive those whe tresspass against us”
That is part of The Lords Prayer.
We recite this, but do we mean it?
It’s easier to forgive when we we know we have been forgiven.
