PERFECT TIME TO MEND BROKEN RELATIONSHIPS

By Jeanniene Lee Maki

Beloved, the holidays are the perfect time to mend broken relationships! Rather than allowing another year to pass and to place even a larger wedge of separation between you and family or friends, it is the perfect time to mend broken relationships. 

The holidays are the perfect time to extend forgiveness and let go of the hurts of the past. Since they happened in the past, they need to be left in the past so you can go on with your future.

For yesterday’s hurts from broken relationships to hold you captive today, you must be operating in unforgiveness.

Unforgiveness will not only weaken your spirit and rob you of your faith when unchecked and not dealt with, but it will ultimately separate you from God. If we do not forgive others, it becomes impossible for God to forgive us.

Receiving forgiveness from God is directly linked to us extending forgiveness to others. Jesus made this quite clear in Mark 11:

And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, FORGIVE HIM AND LET IT DROP (leave it; let it go). IN ORDER THAT your Father Who is in heaven may also forgive you your [own] failings and shortcomings and let them drop. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your [own] failings and shortcomings.
(Mark 11:25-26 AMP)


Yes, You Can Do It!

Jesus did not say we are to try to forgive if we can. No, beloved, Jesus boldly and simply stated that we are to “forgive.” Period. Jesus did not suggest that we forgive those that have hurt us; He commanded us to forgive them.

Now it would be unjust and unfair for Him to command us to do something that was impossible for us to do. Therefore, it is within our ability to forgive. God has enabled us with what is necessary to forgive. It doesn’t matter what has happened; you can forgive. Forgiveness is a choice.
Operating In Fear
You may not realize it, but to operate in unforgiveness is actually to operate in fear. We often don’t forgive others because we’re afraid of getting hurt again. We are afraid we will never recover from the damage that has been done to us.

Unforgiveness is connected to fear, and if you are a born-again Christian, fear is not natural to you. God has not given you a spirit of fear (2 Tim. 1:7a). Fear is a spirit that comes from Satan, not from God. The spirit that God gives us is absent of fear but is full of power, love and soundness of mind (2 Tim. 1:7b).

Rely on the comforting, helping, strengthening power of the Holy Spirit that is within you (John 14:16 AMP) to enable you to forgive. Then forgive by faith, not by feelings.

Decide To Forgive
The first ingredient to forgiving is deciding to forgive. Make a quality decision to forgive because God’s Word commands us to do it, and then just do it!

After you have made that decision, speak and act in accordance with the decision you have made to forgive. Refuse to rehearse in your mind any longer or in your conversation with others the hurt they caused you.

Refuse to say anything negative about anyone who has hurt you. Refuse to allow the holiday gatherings to be another time, like it had been before, to relive over and over again the hurt that you suffered in the past. Let go of the past!

Seize the opportunities the holiday season brings by mending broken relationships during the time you spend at holiday gatherings. Use this time to mend relationships rather than engaging in strife, fussing, fighting and strengthening the wedge of separation.

Seize the opportunities that the holiday season brings by talking with those you have been bitter with all those years. Express your decision to forgive them and let go of the past. Try a warm, sincere hug.

Look for opportunities to bless those who have hurt you in both word and in deed. Make it a priority of your heart to go out of your way to do something exceptionally nice for them.

God will use this to not only bring healing and deliverance to your heart, but will use it to mend and restore the relationship that has been broken down due to calamity.
