This book not only talks about forgiveness and the benefits of being able to forgive and the destructiveness of not being able to forgive, but it also gives you steps to take to help you on that path. Little steps that can make a huge difference, day after day, week after week.
The stories told here will echo your own. They echoed my own stories and brought me great comfort. There is also a strength in all of the stories to help anyone who is struggling to forgive someone else or themselves. I highly recommend this book!
Authors Shelley and CJ Hitz, along with Heather Hart have allowed a variety of individuals to share their stories of forgiveness in an effort to encourage you in the challenges you face or will face in the future. Forgiving is easier said than done but the remedies in this book will help along the way. As you read of the cries of individuals that felt chained, burdened, and in despair over situations involving murder, strained friendships, molestation, divorce, abandonment, and family issues, you will also hear their victorious endings that will inspire you in your journey. Some of these accounts of redemptive forgiveness will warm your heart and inspire you to reconsider the situation(s) in which you struggle with unforgiveness. As you look closer at God that can perfect your inabilities and gain strategies from this book on how to rid yourself of the toxic bondages that anger and unforgiveness bring, you will discover a more wholesome outlook while restoring relationships that could have been severed for years.
This book not only served me with information in forgiving others but equipped me with tools I can share with friends and others that are facing painful challenges in their lives. There are prayers enclosed that can be orally or silently read that invokes the power of the Holy Spirit and confesses repentance of sins.Read more ›
There are no simple formulas or pat answers here, just real people at various stages in their lives that have and are learning to forgive others. Like the psalmist, David, they have dared to acknowledge their pain, pass through a dark and scary path and reach a place where they can once again praise God and walk among others in community. Their stories will touch your heart with their familiarity, awaken your sense compassion with their candid narrations and bring hope to the wounded areas of your life.
Whether you are struggling with hurts from your past or looking for encouragement in your own journey, I highly recommend this thought-provoking collection.
In this book I met people who've been wronged in a multitude of ways - betrayed by a friend, molested by a relative, cheated on by a spouse, "let down" by God. Each story is short enough to read in a five minute daily devotion, and that's the way I'd advise reading it. Those struggling with forgiveness (or struggling to understand it) need time to reflect on each story in order to internalize it.
In my personal experience, I've known many fine, upstanding people who drew their moral line at forgiveness. Someone had wronged them and they simply refused to let it go. Sadly, in punishing the perpetrator with unforgiveness, they cursed themselves with a festering bitterness. So I have a passion for the message of this book. Read it yourself, then get a copy for your friends and children. Life's too short to live it enslaved to bitterness.
