FORGIVENESS BY MATTHEW WEST
Forgiveness is hard when ongoing issues, circumstances, and manipulations tear at your heart and hope. Parent alienation is heartbreaking and fellow Christians have told me to walk away...i cannot do it though at times I wish I could. I know I would be trading one hurt from outside by one avenues through my own choices. I listen to Losing and Seven times seventy and feel the words burned on my soul as exactly correct and true...this human condition of wanting to control, blame, get justice...not in this world is justice promised. I need to let go of these things but leave my heart open knowing I will get hurt again. I am asking for prayers for the courage to do this, to feel God when I can only see the pain, and most importantly to pray my son can one day know the depth of my love and not the sacrifice associated with it. This situation has been going on since he was three...he turns seventeen in a couple weeks.
