Not all forgiveness requires reconnection | Bible Verses on Forgiveness

Read Time:2 Minute, 5 Second

Everyone deserves forgiveness and a second chance but does every forgiveness deserves reconnection?

I was in a very bad place sometimes ago, it was a tough one and my friendship was tested beyond what I couldn’t handle but guess what, I forgave and reconnected.

When a person offends you, the first thing that you just want to do at time is to just get away from that person and never see them again if possible. I was reading an article concerning sexual abuse and one of the victims said;

I thought seeing him locked up, beat up, abused by others and dead would ease the pain or even make me feel better but guess what, i felt empty even after forgiveness and trying to forget“.

Colossians 3:13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

At times I wondered what goes on in the mind of the person I have offended and hurt so badly. Do they truly forgive me? Does my presence bring backs the hurt the pain or can they really forget?

Some reconnections after forgiveness hurts so much that you wished you didn’t forgive them. I recently started reading some Bible verses on forgiveness and understanding the true depth of forgiveness, to forget and have a clean heart. I have people that I have totally forgiven but I just can see myself reconnecting back to them or going back to what we used to have.

Does that make me a bad person or human?

Matthew 6:9-15 9 “This, then, is how you should pray: “ ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, 10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us today our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation,but deliver us from the evil one.’ 14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

Mark 11:25 25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”

Have you ever reconnected with someone that hurt you badly?

How did you forget a hurtful event after forgiveness?

  1. This is a very deep and sensitive topic for me. I was badly betrayed by my best friend and to be honest, I can’t bring myself to forgive, forget nor reconnect. I have this guilt because as a Christian, I have never thought I will ever get to this point where I have to get over a hurt because of my belief and practising what I preach to actually really doing it from my heart *sigh. I know I will get there soon.
    Thank you so much for this bible verses and this post. I will definitely share on my church group to get everyone’s opinion.
    Labake your blog is amazing 😊😊

    1. Wow, firstly thank you for the love you always show my blog.
      Secondly yes, I know how tough it is to truly forgive someone and also to just dwell in that moment for a while and really think everything through. Sending you love and light 😊

  2. I’m not going to lie and I know I can’t forgive my ex for lying about a child. This news changed my whole life and I planned everything towards becoming a father. It’s been two years, I still can’t bring myself to forget nor move on because of the huge ache and void that is left there. Coming from someone that had a rough start in life, it’s not easy.

    I’m getting all the help I can ans I hope I get myself back.

  3. I don’t think I have been in this type of situation before. Yes I have offended someone and I have been offended too but a deep hurt or betrayal? No. I guess that’s one of the reasons I kept my circle really small.

  4. I don’t have a very forgiving heart. I would rather stay away from the person. No hate no love. Just different paths. This is the biggest issue in my relationship. I’m called stubborn.

    1. Forgiveness is a very sensitive issue and some people will just step on your toes at every giving opportunity and have this intention and words like “I will say sorry or ask for forgiveness and that’s it” most don’t know the depth of their actions 😔😔

  5. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? With thanks
