Can we truly forgive those who cause us pain and suffering? Can we find such forgiveness in the love and mercy of our hearts?
There were times I’d see acts of astonishing forgiveness, such as people offering prayers for individuals who had taken the lives of their loved ones. And while humbled by these acts of Christian love and mercy, I could never understand the depths of such forgiveness. Or believe that I could act in such a selfless way.
At one time, I felt blindsided by the actions of people I had trusted for many years. This sense of attack and betrayal affected every area of my life, producing feelings of anger and hatred that seemed impossible to overcome.
