Do you like to hold grudges?
When someone does us wrong, we want to get even and let the world know about the evil side of that person. While you may be right in feeling upset or hurt about the bad behavior of others, I believe our Heavenly Father would prefer for us to swallow our pride and turn the other cheek. Be the bigger person! In order to heal your lifeand transform your life to the degree that you desire, you need to release all the evil thoughts and actions that arise and change your attitude from revenge to offering blessings. Do you realize you can actually overcome evil with doing good deeds instead of thinking of ways to do more evil! When you do good to those who have done you wrong, you are being more effective than if you tried to get even with the enemy. It allows the Creator of the Universe to use tolerance to your advantage
It is easy being good to those who are nice to you but it is most difficult to be nice to those who offend and hurt you. That is the time you need to pray for those who harm you not for their benefit but for your good. When you prove to your Creator that you are not bitter and holding a grudge: that is when your Creator knows you are the best person who can handle the promotions and all the blessings that life has to offer you. You are the bigger person, you are the one who can handle all situations, and therefore, you are the one who will not only transform your life but be the right example to help others transform their livestoo!
When you are good to someone who has done you harm, you are setting a better example; you are being the better person and your Almighty Father will honor you for your goodness. That is when healing your life begins.
I have learned to forgive and forget the harm that I have been caused because the words of God continually come into my head: “ Father forgive them for they know not what they are doing.” That is one of the ways that I transform my life daily.
I encourage you to stop holding grudges and being bitter; instead take the high road, be the one who can let go and let God handle your enemies. He knows how to make all situations right!
Living with grudges and unforgiveness is poison to your mind, body and spirit and will eventually be used to destroy you rather than to benefit you. It is impossible to heal your life and to transform your life when you hold grudges against those who have done you wrong and hurt your feelings.
Stop judging the lives of others! Maybe it is time to show understanding, mercy and forgiveness towards others. I believe it’s time to get past the anger, resentment and grudges. When you pray and ask Your Heavenly Father to give you the courage and strength to understand, you will be the one who will reap the benefits, the blessings and the graces needed to live a life of transformation as you heal your life from all negativity. The benefits are that you will begin to live your life with an abundance of inner peaceand joy.
Blessing your enemy is showing people that you are exceptional and you are ready to be used by your Creator to do good in the world. Too many people live their lives craving to enjoy inner peaceand contentment yet they do nothing to bring it about. I want you to know that when you are the bigger person and you do good to those who have done you harm, you are the beneficiary of God’s goodness and blessings. Maybe it’s time for you to rise up, be the bigger person and praise God for all the blessings you have in your life. Grudges are poisonous; inner peaceand joy is healing. It is the gift from your Creator. Please choose wisely for your life.
