And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for [am] I in the place of God? But as for you, ye thought evil against me; [but] God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as [it is] this day, to save much people alive. Genesis 50:19-20.

Forgiveness,no matter the reason not to forgive,will only drag you backwards in life,you think you hurt the one who you are carrying the hurt over,but you actually are hurting and doing more harm to yourself.

When you refuse to forgive others,you are in actions saying “Lord I don’t need your forgiveness”,refusing to forgive another is refusing the love of Christ over your life.

You loose more spiritually,physically and mentally when you carry hurts within you,in fact your health is threatened when you refuse to forgive another,you open yourself to depression and pain that can cause other problems to your body and mind.

You have the power within you to let go of the pain and the hurts,allow the holy spirit to help you and focus on the grace of God,you can let go,I know it hurts but you can do it,free your mind,free yourself of the hurts and pain,say to yourself today is the deadline,I part with my hurts and I forgive my hater.

Joseph was hurt by his brothers,nothing can be more painful,than when those you love hurt you,he was hated by those he loved,they tried to kill him,eventually sold him,he was sold twice but first by his blood brothers and then by the merchants.

Sold to the house of Portiphar and finally imprisoned but in all this God had a plan,to bring him to greatness,they taught they had gotten rid of him,but they didn’t know they motivated him into his destiny.

Use the pain and the hurts,make it your stepping stone,make it your spring board to your destiny to greater heights,don’t settle in the pain and cry,instead bounce your ways up.

No time to be hurt,I have been hurt too and I know that the greatest battles we fight is not with the devil but within ourselves,you ask yourself why is this happening to you?

If you were not special it won’t happen to you,there is something about you,that folks cant understand,you are blessed even in the midst of the pain,God put something in you that makes you different,folks are envious that’s why they fight you and try to destroy you,focus all your pain not on those who hurt you but direct it to becoming a success in life.

If Joseph had spent all his time crying and wailing,he would not have succeeded,maybe he would have killed himself,and died a nobody,but when he was thrown in the pit,he held on to his dreams,when he was sold,he still held on,when he was thrown in prison and lied on he still held on to his dreams,and he never carried his hurts in his relationships with people,but he kept on helping because he knows that promotion comes from God.

Finally Joseph was in the palace,a Prime minister in Egypt,blessed beyond recognition,just wait a minute if he had killed himself,he would not have made it but he kept his faith in God and never stopped,he didn’t give up on God,he held on,he knew God was up to something,he knew where he is coming from,he knows he is blessed.

You are too blessed to stay hurt and offended,carry a stale face all over the place,keeping grudge on those that hurt you and not smiling when you see them,you hate them so much that if you had your way,you would have killed them,don’t put your life on the hold because of someone who hurt you,put all your energy on where you are going,focus on your future,gather all the pain and say to yourself,I will succeed against all odds.

Forgive all your haters,love them and not hate them,you can do it,you are too blessed to be hurt,don’t waste your time hating on someone who asked for forgiveness,don’t waste your time hating on someone who God already forgave,God will not join you in the hate galore,forgive and move on with your life.

You got no time and too much to loose hating,you are too blessed to be hurt,no time my dear brother and sister,you got too much on the inside of you,begin to harness your gifts and potentials,give it all the best and succeed,you are too blessed to be hurt.

Those who hurt you,when they see you are doing well,they will be uncomfortable,I dare you to forgive and see what God will do,he said,I will give you double for your troubles,when you forgive,you open the door of double portion blessing on your life,you are too blessed to carry hurts,let God and let God.
