Let all be honest here. We have all done something that requires us to say we are sorry; and most of the time, we get an acceptance of our apology and are able to move on.
Sometimes, it’s not that easy and you have to beg for forgiveness until you are granted the much needed acceptance of your apology.
Other times you beg and pray for them to forgive you and you never get their forgiveness. Their hearts are hardened and they want nothing to do with you.
Friends I have been in both boats here and neither are fun to ride in.
Forgiveness is such a key element in our daily lives and most of us look right past it. Just because someone isn’t sorry for something they have done to you doesn’t mean you can’t forgive them. It is so important to forgive others even when they’re not sorry and its important to forgive ourselves when others wont forgive us.
When you ask for forgiveness and truly mean it and never get forgiveness, you need to forgive yourself. You need to know that God will forgive you even if the person your so desperately seeking to wont. . God will forgive you for all your mistakes when you accept him into your life. But if you don’t forgive others you can not be forgiven. The following scriptures are from Matthew 6:14-15 Click Here to view the scriptures online
14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Forgiveness will set you free.
