Please try again later. This is one of my favorite Point Blank albums I tried ordering it but amazon spent months but couldn't get it, so my order is cancelled. So far I only got this cd burned, but i don't want real audio quality, I want cd quality, so if anyone has a unit they can sell, put it up on this site.
This is a great album and it is better if not just as good as Prone to Bad Dreams. Blank was pissed off on this album and dropped some real grimey bars on this joint. His most personal album and best. How we respond to the difficult experiences of life directly affects our spiritual well-being. My father died when I was only ten years old. He left us quite a bit of property and some money. But his four brothers squandered everything we had. In three years my family was living in poverty and debt.
When I was older and really understood what they had done, I urged my mother to take revenge on them, to get a lawyer to take them to court and let them have it. The older I got, the more bitter I became. But the Bible says, Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for Gods wrath, for it is written: It is mine to avenge, I will repay, says the Lord Romans He is the One who measures out justice.
He wants to handle such judgment for us -- perhaps now, certainly ultimately. Forgiving Others My mother always quoted verses like Romans She completely forgave my uncles for what they did. It took us 20 years to finish paying our debts. But she simply refused to become bitter.
She forgot what they had done. Consequently, God gave her a freedom of spirit and opportunities to serve the Lord. I experienced that same freedom and fruitfulness later when I, too, forgave my uncles. How deeply have you been hurt, my friend? Have you become bitter or unforgiving in your attitude? I would like to remind you of the story of Joseph. The Bible gives us many reasons why Joseph could have been a very bitter man.
His brothers hated him and sold him into slavery. His masters wife falsely accused him of a serious crime and had him thrown into an Egyptian prison. A government official promised to help him yet left him there to rot. Despite all these things, Joseph did not allow any root of bitterness to take hold in his life Hebrews As many lives are spoiled by bitterness and a lack of forgiveness as by almost anything in the world. People go through physical and emotional breakdowns because they refuse to forgive others.
The longer we carry a grudge, the heavier it becomes. We cannot afford to harbor bitterness in our soul. The Bible says, Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another.
Forgive as the Lord forgave you Colossians I encourage you to read the story of Josephs life in Genesis It is an exciting portion of Scripture! This passage teaches us many valuable lessons on the importance of forgiveness. Setting Matters Right For twenty years Josephs brothers carried the debilitating burden of guilt within their hearts for what they had done to their brother. Each time they found themselves in a predicament they said, Surely we are being punished because of our brother Genesis For twenty long years they were haunted by a skeleton they kept locked in a closet.
Is there a skeleton hidden in your closet, my friend? Rudyard Kipling said it well: Nothing is ever settled until it is settled right. We can point our finger and make up excuses, we can invent arguments and do anything else we want, but the key to the closet jingles in our pocket until we settle matters right. And we definitely benefit from it when those in our lives are able to forgive us when we inevitably screw up. There is great value in mastering the skill of forgiving but not forgetting.

Forgiveness Fragrance Violet Crushed. It's one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, to forgive. Forgive everybody. Maya Angelou. Forgiveness You Yourself Greatest. Site Home. About About Us. Apps iOS app. There are millions of people who are like that. In fact, there are likely more people who do not deserve another's "forgiveness" than do.
But that does not negate the necessity of forgiveness. Set aside the biblical reason to forgive, a quick search for "does unforgiveness make you sick" yielded , results. So apparently there are a lot of folks who are possibly dealing with the physical and emotional effects of unforgiveness. I compare forgiveness with smiling and an unforgiving person with a frown…it takes fewer facial muscles to smile than it does to frown. And the effects of forgiveness are much better for me for everyone than unforgiveness.
Be forewarned, if you carry around unforgiveness, it will eventually become a very intolerable burden. I once actually hated my own brother. But by making the decision to forgive him even though he never asked knowing in truth he is a sociopath possibly worse I can think of him now and then with no regrets. I can't speak for him, for his motives or his mental, physical, emotional or spiritual condition. But I know I have done what was necessary for my own mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health.
I hold no bitterness toward my brother or several other people who in my past some recent, some long past have hurt me. I can't say that it is all "forgotten", for I made no particular effort to forget, but forgiven? Yes, without a doubt. And I learned a long time ago that just because I can remember a particular injury, like any old scar, rarely is there any pain remaining. I wish you well, W. If we're both riding the bus and it lurches, causing you to jab me really hard with the point of your umbrella, and you say, "I'm sorry, W" but make no effort to prevent it from happening again, are you really sorry?
And should I forgive you and say, "That's okay, Lucy," and continue to let you stab me over and over again until one of us disembarks? No and no. That's not healthy for either if us. Especially if it's higher stakes than an umbrella-jab. I can accept that you may not change.
I can let go of my grudge with you. And yes, I can move on with my life. I've done it a thousand times. I wouldn't have lived this long if I hadn't. I'm not gifting it to you. It's not interpersonal tricks-or-treats that I hand out to anybody. And none of that makes me bad, or sick, or unhappy, or burdened, or grudgy, or in any way "less".
Lucy, maybe we're working with different definitions of the same words. Heck, maybe you're just a nicer person than I am it wouldn't surprise me. While I'm not you, it's OK for me to be me. For me, a historically good-natured kid who has had that trait taken advantage of more times than I can count , I don't see my cautiousness to absolve as a frowny-faced unforgiveness that drags me down or makes me sick. Quite the opposite, actually. Once I move on and I do , I think of it as liberating, as it sets healthy boundaries that ensure my spiritual well-being.
Yes, it's terrific to let go of those ugly, soul-eating emotions. But it's very much possible to do so without saying, "That's okay" to someone who doesn't care that they did a number on me. If you agree, lovely. If you disagree, that's fine, too.
And truly, thank you for your kind thoughts and wishes. But please re-read HaydenT's original post before suggesting that it's "necessary" for me to forgive. It's really not. Reply to W, I guess I will have to qualify my statements. For the most part, my comments have been directed at those who are walking as Christians.
Christianity does change things in the heart and mind of the believer. It requires forgiveness. In the book of Matthew 6 alone, the word "forgive" not counting forgiveness is used 9 times. So regardless of how one wants to define at act of forgiving, at no time is it defined as EASY.
Oddly, forgiving and forgiveness have been the subject of several Bible teachings I have heard this past week on Christian radio. And one statement was a constant in all, and that was this…simply put, if anyone considers the actions of another sin unforgivable then they are placing themselves higher than the God of the universe Who willingly forgives all who ask for forgiveness. And immediately the subject arises, "what about those who do not ask"….
The answer to that is, yes, forgiveness must be sought. I ask for His forgiveness daily. Not for the same sins, but knowing I am still a sinner, I ask Him to pardon my sins of that day, even though I knew He knew about them in advance. How does that play out with those who have hurt us? But because he is my brother, the flesh of my parents, I speak of forgiving him, even though he has never asked to be forgiven.
I am not commanded to forgive someone who does not ask for forgiveness, any more than God will. But I AM commanded to love him. There are several verses that support my decision, and bear in mind they are the Words of Christ Jesus, the very One on Whom I depend for my very breath….. Matthew Sermon on the mount "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
For He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have?Sep 19, · Southside Groovin (feat.
