We can’t always forget, but by God’s strength, we can learn to forgive.
Forgiving doesn’t mean that we condone their behavior. It doesn’t mean that we open a door for them to hurt us again. In fact, we might be left with painful memories, we may need some time to heal, and we might have to put some boundaries in place.
The weight of unforgiveness is not ours to bear. If we truly trust God we need to believe that He is faithful and just, righteous and fair. We see the hurt, but He sees the heart, and He fights for the ones that He loves.
We need to forgive if we ever want peace. We need to let go and let God do His work.

If you have a grievance against somebody or unforgiveness in your heart, take it to prayer. Ask God to help you release the weight of unforgiveness by taking it from you. Ask Him to help you find love and peace.
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. (Ephesians 4:31-32, NIV)

Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.
She began her publishing journey about twelve years ago when she pioneered one of the first online magazines for Christian women, known at the time as “Christian Women Online Magazine.” After three years, Darlene left CWO to blog as a solo author at Time-Warp Wife Ministries.
It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical Fitness. Reshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.
Author of more than 15 books, Darlene continues to write and to minister to her readers through her blog at TimeWarpWife.com.
