I HAVE FORGIVEN THEM, but I can't seem to get past the pain. God seems distant. Does he even care about me?
Do any of these questions hit close to home? It may surprise you that the underlying cause is often hidden unforgiveness. Our closest relationships, emotional health, and perhaps even our faith seem to be crumbling around us, but most of us have no idea that forgiveness is the way forward. If we are honest, we don't even know what forgiveness is. We may have a vague idea that it has something to do with "forgetting" or "letting go" but would be hard-pressed to come up with a working definition. Worse yet, we have no idea how to practice forgiveness in a way that brings lasting relief from the hurt we carry. Most of us are not trying to hang on to the pain, but freedom is elusive.
Freedom from your pain is within reach! Forgiveness is not a vague, esoteric concept, nor is it a lofty, out-of-reach ideal. Forgiveness: A Surprising Way Forward digs into the biblical definition of forgiveness, shares real stories of real people who have found healing, clears up some misconceptions, and teaches how to practice forgiveness. If we do not address the wounds of our past, they will shape our future. God has provided a powerful tool to helpus find freedom - forgiveness is the surprising way forward!
