I believe I will take a look at it. Obviously unforgiveness is a blockage to becoming more Christ like and I'm wondering now if unforgiveness may be a reason for unbelief still dwelling in parts of a believer's heart. We have believed God but still can't believe Him in many areas it seems. I'm wondering why and what the blockages are.Thanks Greg.
The harm done to one's family, when forgiven, is always a moving account. Amish, others of that theological heritage of pacifism, who have done so ---- just blows me away. I buried deep resentment for a long time toward a family member, and it made matters worse not better. I did forgive, genuinely, right before he died, and it was a sorry state I'd brought on my own soul and deprived us both of healing. In the end, the greater fault between us was my own. I fear that within me I could carry resentment again like that. Don't want to, but like George Strait used to sing, "I know me." Just being real with you.
