As I write I’ve just entered my 66th year of life.
Half of those years – exactly 33 – I have spent at war.
Until Jesus Christ offered Forgiveness. I accepted it.
BEYOND VENGEANCE TO FORGIVENESS: A Memoir of Christ’s Transforming Power is, in essence, my ode to capital ‘F’ Forgiveness.
Forgiveness is a gift. Forgiveness can be claimed at any time. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are. One’s social status has no bearing whatsoever on your ability to claim Forgiveness. Just ask.
In turn, once Forgiven, we are encouraged to extend the ‘healing power’ of Forgiveness. To those with whom you’ve taken issue; to those you have treated unjustly or with animosity – don’t worry, they can all be brought to remembrance. Just trust me, okay?
That’s right, ask Forgiveness from any, and all, that are brought to mind. If the list is long, so be it! Search each one out and seek Forgiveness to repair the rift in your relationship.
Do this on the ‘Wings of Prayer,’ asking Jesus Christ to strengthen your resolve. Take it from me – the experience will be life-changing.
