Who controls you? Lets talk forgiveness. I was 5  years old when my brother tried to molest me. I forgave my brother but before you send many replies about how could you, I want you to know Jesus loves me and he has pursued me much longer then I deserved to be pursued. I am forgiven therefore I forgive. Forgiving is not easy it actually take much more courage then most people have. I walk in freedom because I let that go and no longer have to carry that burden. Its at the cross and God can take it. I don’t have to be a victim because in Gods light I am victorious. Saying you forgive does not mean you need to forget. Forgiving the wrong does not excuse the pain but it does mean you walk in grace and choose a higher road. Now I am sure that God wept that day and maybe that’s why He fought so hard for me. I am a chosen child of our Father. I am thankful I can walk in grace and forgive. I am thankful for the free will He has given us. There a lot of people thirsty for love and looking in all sorts of places. But I can tell you the only way to quench your thirst is not in the bottom of a bottle, in drugs, sex or food…it is in the Living Water. With that water running through me I am able to forgive not just seven times but many more. I have the ability to go to the only source I need and say I am here Father…take me where you need me to go, have me see what you see, hear what you hear and have a heart to receive.

If your a survivor of abuse I urge you to take it to the cross. For man may hurt you God’s arms are waiting and you can leave all that at the cross and be victorious.

    You have continued to show others that it is possible to turn our personal pain into our personal message for God’s glory! God loves a heart that is transparent before HIm…it shines through with His Light! ~Zoey

  2. I am proud of you for speaking out. Forgiveness is not only a gift you give others, but one you give yourself. God wants to heal us all, He needs our cleans hands and a pure heart to start his surgery. 😉 Blessings.
