As a born again Christian, I growp up hearing many sermons about forgiveness. A topic I did not pay much attention considering my age and what I have been though. “A 15 year old girl who felt she knew it all” I thought, it is easy to talk about this topic when you never had walk on this “shoes”. Well, I have to share; as difficult as it was to look into the eye of a person that have stole part of your enocence almost two decades ago and finally forgive it all. Feeling free of guilt, rage , hurt, betrayal and shame, has been one of the most incredible miracle I have witness.
I can’t speak for everyone out there, however to be able to forgive those who hurt me in ways I can’t even describe have set me “free”. Forgiveness is not for the person that hurts you; forgiveness it simply for “YOU”. It took me may years to understand this concept. Alone with many research as well. Today I wanted to share with you the joy I feel, because I believe it would help someone out there who might be struggling with this problem. Just remember , to be able to forgive will not come from you alone. It would come though Jesus Christ who was the first to set the perfect example of what “true” forgiveness really means. So if you are wishing to forgive or be forgiven, ask Jesus for help on this matter. I honestly believe, alone it would be almost impossible to handle this problem on your own.
