Fulfilment or fulfilling life is satisfaction in somebody’s life.  The satisfaction you get will depend on the goal which you have set for yourself in life.  Fulfilment and satisfaction mean different things to different people. Your heart’s desire could be to be in the service of God, have good family, good business, achieve political ambition, military, science and technology and so on.  Fulfilment is synonymous with success and they are the same thing.  “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end”. (Jeremiah 29:11).  We can now see the wonderful thoughts and plans of our God for us, of peace and that we fulfil our ultimate desires.


Energy is the ability to create or do something and our God is that ability.  Our God is energy and all that He hath created are all energies including the man that he can be used for creating other things.  Look at the sun, moon, stars, vegetation, seas, land and so on are all energies.  All things that the Lord has created are energies and have His fingerprints on them.  Apart from the sun, moon, stars and non-terrestrials, the biggest energy of God is in man and concentrated in his heart.  “Guide your heart with all diligence for from out of it are the issues of life”.  (Proverbs 4:23).  Thoughts are energies; therefore do not put too many thoughts at the same time on too many different things if you are looking for quick solutions. Concentrate on the most important ones.


Just like your father Jehovah, you can create and recreate with the thoughts of your heart.  Your heart is like steering to a driver; The role of steering to a driver is to use it to steer the car carefully to its destination.  When the road bends to the left or right, in each case you slowly steer the car so that it does not run out of the road or lane.  When you want to turn left or right, you turn the steering accordingly.  In aeroplanes, the controllers at the control tower will determine the altitude and time for which the planes will fly and allocate them according to the size of the aeroplane.  The pilot communicates with the controller and working with a compass, will pilot his plane accordingly to its destination. In the sea, the captain also uses a compass for his navigation.


The type of energy you will generate will depend on your mindset.  Let us look at the same thing from different mental attitudes.  Now look at ’forgiveness’ and ‘unforgiveness’ and see how they can affect your life:



I see unforgiveness as someone holding himself in bondage or prison. Not letting or allowing the evil or sin committed against him to go or melt away from his heart.  When you are hurt, do not allow it to turn to something else, try to forgive yourself before you begin to destroy yourself. I say forgive yourself first because if you do not forgive yourself, you will be languishing in pains as a result of anger. Two wrongs cannot make a right.  If you allow it to turn to anger, hatred, frustration and the like, you will find that your happiness, peace and love has been taken away from you.  These are the qualities that make life very interesting for you and when they are removed, morals, motivation and inspiration begin to sink which you should not allow.  Consequences of the above will result in self-harm which will result in mental breakdown, demoralising,  more frustration, depression and other sicknesses. 


Look at cancer, this deadly disease is often caused when toxic substances are released into the cells due to negative mental conditions such as anger.  Most people do not survive, not for long because as they are treated and the anger is still there or persist, they spread to the other parts of the body. Your thought system is more important in your lifestyle than food and drinks.  Your heart is the concentration of the energy of God in you that affects everything you do or desire to do. “Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man”. (Matthew 15:11). Nothing can come out of the mouth of a man without first coming from his heart. The spiritual connotation of man cannot be overemphasized. Thinking, worrying and anger of what people have done to you, raises the blood pressure which leads to many other health problems.



It is good if we can know the meaning of forgiveness before talking or writing about it.  I believe, there is no point talking or writing about what we do not know. First, let us look at ‘forgiveness’ from the worldly perspective. The Cambridge Dictionary defines it as “to stop blaming or being angry with someone for something that person has done, or not punish them for something:” The dictionary did not say that we should forget the act or omission of the individual who offended us.  It is talking about letting go the blaming, anger and frustration that goes with it.

The question we should ask ourselves are  – what have we done to merit or deserve such act or omission.  Has there been any act or omission which led to such behaviour?  Psychologists generally define forgiveness as “a conscious, deliberate decision to release feelings of resentment or vengeance toward a person or group who has harmed you, regardless of whether they deserve your forgiveness”.


Forgiveness is to download all the pains, hurts, resentments and frustrations to Christ who is the author and finisher of our lives and carry on life as if it has not happened at all. Look at Matthew 11:28-30 (KJV), “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavily laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light”.


Forgiveness is a present continuous tense, qualifying the state of your mind and you should not go back to thinking about the hurt, pains and anger even though you may remember the cause from time to time and find a way to avoid its re-occurrence in the future.  Forgiveness means doing to others as we would want them to do to us.  If there is no sin, there wouldn’t be forgiveness.  Sometimes, we offend others through our acts or omissions.  Some sins may not be deliberate actions or omissions but accidentals.  However, forgiveness depends again on whom you are forgiving if he/she has a repentant spirit.  Whether or not they repent of their actions or omissions, it is good on your part to forgive them to free ourselves from carrying the burden around and lifting it off our shoulders. We must continuously keep praying that the Lord will keep us from all evils and all the temptations that are associated with them. 


To sum it up, every action has consequences; there is this spiritual law which says ‘whatsoever a man sows, that he shall reap’.  Do not bother to fight back for the Lord said ‘vengeance is mine, I will repay’. Romans 12:19.
