Carrying around the anger and resentment from what someone did to you will only make their issues your own. That is dead weight that you don’t need in your life. That is time you are wasting fixated on them, when if you really thought about it—they most likely are so far-removed from that situation that it is no longer of concern to them; some may not even remember the incident or simply don’t care.
If we say that God takes care of our battles, then why don’t we release these trespasses to Him and allow Him to handle our grievances?
Father I pray for Your forgiveness. I have worked at freeing myself to forgive others who have sinned against me so that I no longer carry around the dead weight from a cold heart and closed mind. I know that I can’t ask for and expect forgiveness from You if I can’t find it in my heart to forgive Your children. In Your name I pray. Amen.
