Having a heart filled with resentment fully occupies your mind and keeps you trapped in a constant state of misery. Forgiveness is a blessing and takes great strength. By not forgiving, you are literally giving that other person total control of your life by allowing that person to steal your peace of mind...your very joy. With forgiveness, your heart softens, that heaviness lifts and you feel free. Bless and release those feelings of animosity to the Holy Spirit. Instead of living in a state of animosity, you can live in a state of peace that passes all understanding.
