Since we have been talking about forgiveness lately, I wanted to share this song by Jason Upton. Forgiveness is not easy. In fact many of us have struggled with being able to forgive those who have hurt us. But the first thing that we have to do is to choose to forgive. That is the first step. The rest of forgiveness will come as our healing comes… one layer at a time.
Dear Lord, only You see the multitude of victims who have been wounded by the words and actions of others. Help us to forgive so that we will no longer carry the burdens of our past. Heal us and deliver us of any anger, bitterness or any residue from the abuses that we have endured. We choose to forgive… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
