Forgive - or - Forget?

Most of you know that I get a daily email from which contains a bible verse, a quote, an action to take and a prayer. Once again, I felt the need to share one of them. 
This one, I'm sure, touches each of us. In most of our lives, we can recall something that hurt us and we have a hard time forgetting that hurt. 
Even if we can't say the specific words in our hearts ("I forgive him/her"), maybe it's time to at least admit it's time to forget that matter and release the burden of hurt, and then we can move on.

"Bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, if any man has a complaint against any; even as Christ forgave you, so you also do." Colossians 3:13

A Time to Think
Life becomes harder for us when we live for others, but it also becomes richer and happier.–Albert Schweitzer, theologian, philosopher and physician

A Time to Act
Forgive those who have crossed you. Your forgiveness is your most important contribution to the healing of the world.

A Time to Pray
Lord, show me new ways to bring comfort and healing in Your name.

Thank you, Lord, for these daily reminders from Guidepost writers. So often, they help me to look at things in a different way, and thereby continue to move on. Bless those writers, please, for their ability to share these thoughts.
