To The Girl Struggling With Forgiveness
And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in Heaven may forgive you your sins. (Mark 11:25)I know what itâ€™s like to have hurt and bitterness in your heart. You feel like you shouldnâ€™t forgive those who have wronged you. You feel like itâ€™s impossible to forgive that person that hurt you so badly. Iâ€™ve been there. Itâ€™s not a good feeling. When I was at a youth camp one summer I went up to the altar because I needed to forgive some people in my life. The pastorâ€™s wife that prayed over me that night told me to say out loud â€œI forgive ________.â€ It didnâ€™t immediately heal me but it did help me to begin the process of forgiving those people in my life. God has called us to forgive those who have hurt us and wronged us.
I also encourage you to pray that God will help you forgive that person. Even journaling a letter to that person can help you get all of those feelings off of your chest. Forgiveness isnâ€™t always easy but it is a start for healing. I hope this helps you start a journey of forgiveness, healing, letting go, and moving forward.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
