How can you possibly forgive what has been done to you? Where is the One who will protect your heart, you wonder? Where is the One who will come and bring rescue, come to be help, come to put their arm around your shoulder, look you in the eye and say, I know, I know, I know? How Jesus, can I forgive? When the pain is so great? How? How? How?
Yes, I know forgiveness feels risky, perilous, unwise even. To ask for my help in softening your heart toward those who’ve wronged you . .. well, it feels too much to ask. Not when they’ve hurt you so deeply. I know. I know.
But you must. You must. If you want your heart to be whole. If you want your heart to be mine. I am not saying you need to continue to put yourself in situations where you are being hurt again. You shouldn’t. Boundaries must be drawn. But you must forgive. Forgive the person who has hurt you. Forgive and let your heart soften. Forgive and be kind. Forgive and watch what I do when I draw you out, helping you to trust me--my good plans for you.
