“And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.” Ephesians 4.32 NASB
What sticks out to you in the above verse? Please take a moment to comment on that or what it is you need to do to forgive or who you have to forgive. Confessing and seeking others to pray for you and with you is a good part of the healing process of forgiving.

If you need to forgive, it is time.
If you need help doing so, ask God to show you how and help you forgive.
