Forgiveness is the act of letting go of a grudge or pain and not counting our sins. Forgiveness requires one to turn away from hate and welcome peace.
In Psalm 130:3, "If you O Lord should count our guilt, who will survive?". He also said to his disciples, " I tell you to forgive your brother not seven times, but seventy-seven times". I ask you today, what is that thing that troubles your mind, what is that pain that you can't seem to let go of, Jesus Christ is telling you to lay it on him that he will give you rest because when we forgive others, our sins also are forgiven by the Almighty in heaven. We've rounded a few bible verses about forgiving others who hurt you.

He has taught us to love one another just as he loves you, and do everything with a good heart.
Whatever you are going through, he's always with you now and will be with you forever. Do not let the hate and resentment you harbor deprive you of the wonderful life the Almighty has in store for you; because his plans are beautiful. Forgive whosoever has hurt you so that your father in heaven will forgive you and may his name alone be glorified forever.
