Here’s What To Do If You Want To Become A Better Person

It’s happened to all of us. Someone did us wrong!

When somebody wrongs us, either by accident or on purpose, it can be extremely hard to get over it. In fact, we may never be able to reconcile with the wrongdoer. That said, forgiveness is essential and it gives us a chance to heal and become a better person. Don’t get me wrong. Forgiving doesn’t mean that you’re excusing what someone or a collection of people did. It especially doesn’t mean that you can’t still have feelings about what happened.

It may seem like you’ll never escape the emotions you feel when you’ve been wronged, but I truly believe that time heals all wounds. Don’t rush the process. Give yourself space from the event and focus on the present. You may never understand why they did what they did, but it can sometimes help to try to see things through their eyes.

God wants us to realize that He is a God of “second chances.” If we have sinned or made mistakes in our lives, He offers the opportunity to be forgiven, if we will just confess our sins. In the same way, we must be willing to forgive others and offer them a second chance. In every area of our life, God offers each of us the opportunity to start over. He can open up new doors, turn defeat into victory, and even create a way in this crazy world where there did not seem to be a way.

Today, ask God to help you become sensitive to sin. Confess your sins, and receive His freedom. Remember to forgive others who might have sinned against you. And don’t give up if you have experienced failure or frustration. Trust God! He can turn your defeats into victories!

1 John 1:9 – But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.

    This is what Jesus did for me when I couldn’t forgive. After years of being hurt continually I couldn’t stand the resentment, anger,and sleepless nights and all the other negative feelings that come with unforgiveness.I cried out to my Jesus asking him to take away all the garbage in my heart and replace it with his love. I had no idea what I was asking for, I just wanted the depressing feelings gone. What Jesus did was make me see people through his eyes. I started seeing what Satan was doing to people and they weren’t even aware of him, and how he was affecting their lives. Then I would pray for them; I would ask Jesus to get their attention, help them etc. Guess who got blessed?! ME! All the bad negative feelings were gone in an instant, and believe it or not, my heart was filled with love for anyone who offended me, even to this day. Jesus did this for me over 30yrs. ago, and the peace He has given me is never ending. I did nothing but ask for Jesus to give me his love to replace all the hurt, and it was as if he was just waiting for me to ask! I hope my story can help someone else.
