A prime example of what forgiveness can do?
Sometimes the thought of forgiving someone who hurt you may make you want to throw up.
Why should I forgive him/her? She hurt/wronged/betrayed/scarred me for life! I will NEVER forgive, you might think.
For the month of October, Dr. Heather is leading a workshop-based Sunday service called the Commitment Experiment.
Each week, we explore principles that are catalysts to a Divinely-inspired, abundant life.
This past week we focused on forgiveness.
I was taken back to a time in my life, only 5 short years ago, when I was faced with a devastating betrayal.
It hurt like nothing I had ever felt before.
The image was seared into my mind. I thought I’d never get rid of it.
Only days later, I was almost watching myself, as if I was an observer, as I was Divinely Guided to see my part in that devastating moment in my life.
As the days, weeks and months went on, I worked to heal myself.
What I realize I was doing was, instead of healing, I was going through the phases of forgiveness.
Only last year, was I so comfortable with that experience in my life, that I decided to write a book about it.
This post isn’t about promoting my book, but it’s about the transformational catalyst that ONE, devastating night was, and how I didn’t think I’d survive it with my family in tact.
Five years, almost exactly, after this event, I look back on that time as a pivotal shift in my life….for the better!
