Yesterday, I remembered an offense that had been perpetrated against me, by someone very close to me. I had completely forgotten about it. I don't know what even triggered the memory. I felt nothing about it. No emotional response whatsoever.
There was no sting, pain or even disappointment. I truly felt
nothing. I can't even remember what the offense was even now, while I am writing. It has become so insignificant, that it takes up no space in my memory.
When you choose to forgive and allow God to do the work within your heart, He really does. Just as He blots out our transgressions from His own memory, He has the power to remove from our memory, transgressions against us, as well.
That is real freedom.
