I'm justified, made righteous. So when I feel justified in my anger when I feel I want to give a piece of my mind away, I remember it is only by Your grace I'm justified made righteous and I too make mistakes. God help me love like you love I know I've hurt you so much but you never leave me you never take away touch. I know you understand that I'm only acting out of my pain and when I recognize it your arms are open for me to return again. So God thank you for reminding me of who I am so when I am hurt instead of planning my revenge, I can love like you love with no strings .

Incarcerated by your rights. Your rights to be hurt to be broken to be angry. Your rights to not speak to ignore and put up walls. You are right they shouldn't have done it. You are right it hurts deeply and you are not the same, but your rights of unforgiveness have turned into a chain. Don't try to settle the score, you reap what you sow. Don't try to make them fix it, only God can heal your soul. Stop letting what the person did to you eclipsed what God has done. Don't let the past intrude on the new season that's begun.
Forgiveness means no longer requiring the person who hurt you to mend what they have broken. Let it go and live.
