Forgiveness

I have recently joined a Bible study group. This has been a huge step, but it seemed simple until this last week when we discussed Forgiveness. I struggle with wanting to forgive, but my stubborn and grudge holding side is finding this a very difficult task. I did some searching for quotes to help in my forgiving journey.
"Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future"
-Paul Boese
"Never forget the three powerful resources you have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness."
-H. Jackson Brown
"Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting."
-William Arthur Ward
"The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong."
-Mahatma Gandhi
Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
Colossians 3:13

Keep working on the forgiveness thing. It is so worth the freedom it provides. Easy? No. Worth it? YES! I'm proud of you!
