Who Gives Kudos:



forgiving is easy to say hard to do could you forgive this?

2007 to 2008 was a year of God 's grace for me.

I been in relationships before but none that were abusive, but this time the devil almost killed me early this year.  I really thought i knew this person and had been friends with him for years but as the years go by I guess he was not the same person I knew. I never thought he would asalt me but like I said i thought I knew him. Well on top of the abuse my brother died in the process and he had the nerve to come to the funeral. I know God dosen't put more on us than we can bear but my question is to anyone looking at this could you forgive a person that hit you and then came to your only brothers funeral not to pay his respects but to try to hurt you emotionally.

First I'd like to say, believe me when I say I know exactly where your'e coming from when you talk of abuse.   I have been there myself.  I'm sorry you had to go through such a thing.  I am also sorry about your brother.

Second thing is I'm still not sure where people get the saying that God will not put on us more than we can bear....The only thing I can think of is we have heard it said so often that we think it is in scripture but I can't find it in there.  Maybe some folks are takeing this scripture(1 Cor.10:13) and turning it around???

1 Corinthians 10:13 (King James Version)


 13There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Which if they are useing this one out of context I can't see how because this clearly is speaking of temptations and God is not the tempter we all know that right?

Matt.6:14For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

 15But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses

Think of all the things God has forgiven you for and please try and forgive this man.  I know you won't ever forget it but pray about this.

You may also want to read Matthew 18

God bless you sis.

The truth of the matter is some of the things people do want to me want to vomit! But I must remember that the cross was not for good people and we know that some people are medalist in hell, we must understand that the cross is for everyone. Every human needs the cross in deperate measures...

No. I do not say that it is easy to forgive and I have a problem with someone just the same. But I trust in God to allow forgiveness to happen even for a hour and when I remember what I've done, I know my God will forgive me too for what I have done...and I'm not proud of what I may have done even unintentionally...
