• Kambua says forgiveness may take blood,sweat and tears but it is worth it.
• She says unforgiveness hinders many people's growth.
Gospel artist Kambua has advised Kenyans to learn to forgive those who have wronged them.
The mother of three says forgiveness is a hindrance to most people's growth.
Speaking about her personal experience, Kambua says at some point in life she was betrayed by people she trusted.
Despite the hurt, she was able to move on after forgiving them.
"About a decade ago I experienced betrayal that at the time felt so deep, I couldn’t wrap my mind around it.
I would go into prayer about it and just cry cry cry. Copious amounts of bitter tears!
The friendships I’d held dear suddenly felt strangely misaligned, unsafe, and belligerent. It felt like a forever season with no end in sight.
It was in that season that the spirit of God began to strongly convict me about harboring unforgiveness."Kambua Penned
Further adding that once she forgave those who hurt her, she felt lighter.
"I knew that as much as I put on a brave front, I wasn’t truly free and would not attain healing as long as I let bitterness find a home in my heart.
It started a deep dive of reflection, release, and repentance over and over until one day I realized I no longer felt nauseous when I pondered over all that had happened.
God by his grace helped me to forgive, even to an extent of ministering to the said individuals years down the line."
Kambua admits that forgiving is not easy but it is doable.
"Friends, unforgiveness is one of the biggest hindrances to your growth. It will pull you back, stunt you, and cause you to be very unproductive.
The deception with bitterness is how it gives a false sense of power over the situation. Power is grossly laced with pride. Is it easy to forgive?
Sometimes it will take blood, sweat, and tears, but beloved it is worth it. But more than that, it qualifies us for forgiveness from our Heavenly Father.
I implore you to start the year right. Let’s travel light in 2023."
