{To forgive means, to Absolve from payment.

Let it go, Do away with it}......



How many times have you had a problem with someone and thought you had let it go, but the other person kept bringing it to the surface?



There was a time in my marriage, when I was the one bringing things back up to the surface.

My husband and I had some disagreements and problems between us......And I just couldn't look past them.

I remember at one time, where he said to me, {let it go Hun, forget about it,

But oh no, I wouldn't, and I couldn't.....

Of course it took time for me to gather it all up and let it go,

All that clutter that I had stored up inside.............

I couldn't do it alone, I needed nobody else but God, and when He had stepped in, and when I had gave in.......that was when things started to change in my marriage.......

I started to forgive the little things, and after that it became a habit to forgive.



If we want to walk in forgiveness, we're going to need God's aide. in the Book of John 20:22 -23 it says, { "He breathed on them and said, receive the Holy Spirit.

If you forgive anyone his sins they are forgiven; and if you don't forgive them, they are not forgiven."}

In order to forgive someone who has offended us, we must first receive The Holy Spirit.

God is there to give us Guidance, Strength, and the Ability to forgive.

As for myself, I couldn't do it alone, I needed God's help to guide me step by step........

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I Love this I have the same problem between my husband and I and boy do I bring it up. I know I need to stop but it's so hard when he continues to make comments right. we have been married almost 6 years and 3 kiddos My husband came to me one day said he wants a divorce! that he has been talking to his first time love at a very young age . the next night he went out with her at the mall holding her hand at the mall and one of the people that works with him saw him and this hamowrecker and he said hi and smiled like it was no big deal. Not to mention she's also a good friend of mine UGH the nerve of him he was also carrying a small victoria secret bag for her and this blows it all he had the nerve to go to babies r us and buy her twin girls stuff like 50 out of our joint account and bring our son home a cup........ wtf I cried and yelled theres not much I havent done I know it was wrong but theres more I could go on and on and I still keep him but we hardly ever talk, we never go out when he was dating her while married to me they went everywhere and were on the phone texting non stop but to me he never takes me out unless i make a big deal, and he hardly ever texts me or calls me while on breaks That burns my butt so bad ...... Do you think I am crazy for thinking that way ? or I am just confused and stressed

This is one thing that I'm having to work on. To stop dwelling on the past. My family has always dwelled on the past for so long. It took me and my husband moving out of that house to help us. We moved in with my dad and started getting him and my step-mom to start going to church. I'm having to learn how to forgive. Which is one thing that we both have had a lot of problems with. My husband and I have been through a lot of things together, and through out our lives. Can everyone pray for us, to be able to get back on track with our lives?
