Overcomer: On Forgiveness

This is the hardest topic in my eyes that we face in our lives. It took me many many years to realize that forgiveness is the first step towards healing, I've heard that from many therapists, but never truly believed it until I experienced it. I would like to speak more about it, but I believe that this video says it better than anything I've ever found. I have held a lot against others, blamed my failures and my grudges that I hold on other people, but truly the only person to blame for a grudge is yourself. Because while you think that holding anger affects the one who wronged you, the true person you are hurting is yourself, your letting anger and that grudge control your life. I have let my hurt control my life and I believe that I did because I didn't love myself. I was hurting myself, but I didn't care because the hurt that was dished out by someone else I felt I truly deserved because I felt that I was worth nothing. I was so low that I blamed myself for that hurt, and felt that I could deserve the hurt I was enduring. But it took me a long time to realize that I was more than a victim, that I could experience life without the hurt, I had never felt anything besides hurt, until I felt God's love. I learned that I could let go of everything and all of the pain and become new. That I was a child of God and the true love that should be experienced between a father and their child. I learned that I was perfect, that I was wonderfully and beautifully made by his hands. That I could let go of the chains not by getting back at my father, not by hurting him the way he hurt me, but by forgiving him and living life. The love and strength I felt was the most amazing feeling I had felt, I let it go. This song says,"It’ll clear the bitterness away, it can even set a prisoner free, there is no end to what it’s power can do, so, let it go and be amazed, by what you see through eyes of grace, the prisoner that it really frees is you." Those words are beautiful, so perfectly written. My video player is not working so for once I'm going to have to put a link on the post to click to see the video. After the video I want to say a prayer just as I have on every post. "Lord, I want to let it go, you know my hurt, you know my anger, I want to let it all go, for myself, just as you and Christ forgave me. I'm leaving it at the cross and I'm living my life. In Jesus name I pray, Amen." You don't have to say this prayer, use your heart and pray on your own towards God. He's always there and he's always listening, so let it off your shoulders. :)
