Forgiveness is a choice.
A choice that heals ME.
It does not have to mean reconciliation.
I have heard it said that unforgiveness is like taking poison and expecting someone else to die.
I do not wish to reconcile with some who have hurt me.
But I want to be healed.
Forgiveness is my choice.
A cheerful heart is good medicine,
but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
Proverbs 17:22 (NIV)
