Poison Alert

Morning Lovies,

It is 2.45 a.m and I still don’t understand why I am up this early. So you know that feeling when you are in love and everything around you and in you just feels so shiny? Well that’s how I have been feeling since yesterday and I can’t explain why, in fact the butterflies in my tummy are the ones that woke me up. Please don’t ask if it’s bae; he hasn’t shown up yet.

Anyway, let’s command our day. Today will be my day of joy, I will be effective, efficient and fervent in all things. I will achieve and surpass all my set goals.

Lets talk about unforgiveness!

To be honest, I can’t believe I have grown to the point where I can talk about malice. Once upon a time I used to pride myself in how skilled I was at keeping grudges and how I could go for days, months, even years depending on what the situation was. For some reason, my justification was that it showed no signs of weakness; I was not a pushover. Now that is all changing  to God’s glory. Now I am so quick to apologize and forgive. Maybe it’s because over the years I have seen it destroy churches, homes and even got people killed.  

An example would be Toke Makinwa’s parents who died as a  result of two of their house helpers keeping malice and not talking to each other.  A summary of what happened. Her mother gave an instruction to help A that a leaking gas cylinder was not to be used. Help A did not relay the information to help B. Help B used the cylinder, causing an explosion that ended up killing Help A, B, and Toke’s parents and also injuring her brother. Whatever the situation was that might have caused the beef, was it worth all the lives lost or the pain that family suffered? 

Maybe it’s because I have been forgiven so many times, even when I was undeserving. I mean, aside from God forgiving me on a per millisecond basis, my amazing friends and family still forgive me. So who am I not to pay it forward? Plus, Matthew 18:23-35 tells us that if we do not forgive people, we get turned over to the torturers. It’s just so much torture haboring hateful thoughts towards another person. No matter how much you try to pretend, every time you see that person your countenance automatically changes and things get uncomfortable.

Don’t get me wrong, I get offended and hurt. Yes, sometimes it seems unfair  for me to easily forgive, but the cost of the poison of unforgiveness is too high.
It’s never worth it no matter what the situation is, Let go and let God! 

Love and Kisses,
