I do remember sort of things from my past, specially hatred towards people who's been hurting me and putting a deep pain in my heart that it seems to me that I can never solve them out or even worked it out to them those people involved. Now, I have came to realized that I should not be living all my life with a hatred feeling inside and carrying the grudge from my past in heart towards a certain individual, but now I tend to forget and forgive people and all the bitterness setting aside what is behind and moving on to a happy life and live it to it's fullest. I believe that it's all because the love of God in my life which gives me the wisdom to forgive all those who have hurted me and giving me pain from before, and with the love that I have now in Christ and the renewing of my heart and soul...I now have the victory in Christ Jesus and I know now that I have conquered what is good from evil and have win the love over hate from my past experiences. Do you also all have the same or similar experiences that relates my story in your own life like all things that i've been through from my past life story? Please do share your thoughts and opinions... God bless all of you!

Very true!! You can't live a happy life with a grudge, or hate inside you. I've been going through this type of situation for a couple of years now. I know the person loves me, but they keep pushing me away every time I get close, and I think it's for my own good, judging by the situation. I told this person that I will never walk away because I love them, and that I will never let them down. I will always be here, should they need me, and I would do everything in my power to make things good for them again. That, to me, is the only way to enjoy your life, even if you have sad moments in between. Love is the greatest gift, besides life, and it is best shared. Hatred should be trodden into the earth where it belongs, so we can all live in peace and harmony. Brightest Blessings.

Great statement! Thank you Darkwing, I believe that love itself can truly wins over any hatred, anger, bitterness and just about any bad things/negative thoughts around us and in people's lives and everywhere we go, etc. And if all would have the same love inside our hearts, peace and unity...then, we surely all have a bright world in us.

It sounds as if you've had a holy revelation. It is certainly a much better way to live and I think your life has had a dramatic turn-around. This has never happened to me. I simply don't have any of the strong feelings you have. Blessed be.

Yes, indeed I've been through a lot of experiences in life which isn't very easy to forgive people and forget all those bitterness behind from my past...but, by God's forgiveness in my life and through His love I then came to realize and have came to the point that I should let things go from my past and start moving on with a fresh new life in Christ. Thanks for sharing.

Its good that u didnt let ur hatred over take u... The real happiness derives when u free urself of hatred and use love to give warmth to everyone around u... Sometimes, there are lotsa experiences that maks u feel really bad and hurt, but treat them as the growing up process... Its difficult, but for sure we can all do it.. =)

Yes I believe that we can all do it but in the slow process until we can finally get through from all of it. It may be difficult really at first but once we started to forgive and forget all the past things, then for sure we can make it to it's way. Thanks for sharing.

I learned in my family by their (not so good) example that the only people who are burdened by grudges are the people who are carrying them. Hatred makes you old, from the inside out. God's love helps remove those chains that keep us tied to the old ways of "an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth" Being able to turn loose of hatred and pain lets you be light hearted, and more effective in your life. That is how love wins. We do not always see victory in this lifetime in overall situations, but we do see victory in our own lives.

Yes I do agree with you. It's a matter truly on how we carry our own burdens and surrender it all to God, and that's how we truly win and have our victory in God through His loving mercies upon our lives. Thanks for sharing.

That is right! when you let yourself go from those bitterness in the past, then I can say that it would be easy to forgive and forget everything what is behind. Thanks for sharing.

True love wins over hate.It can definitely do that.Being an Indian I would definitely like to talk about the great Gandhiji.He was promoter of love to win against enemies.He never supported hatred and we won our independence because of him.

This is true, that when you hate or carry grudges or judge people in this way, the only person you are hurting is yourself. Let it all go and move on, for the past exists no more and whatever happened cannot be undone.. :-)
