Fighting the demons of what others have done, being able to explain the whys, and trying to figure out how to keep lifting up their feet and moving forward. How do they take their next breath? How do they function in a society who wants everyone to get over, whatever their pain is, and continue to move forward....so easy for us all to think that and say that...but if you walked in their shoes for one moment of the pain that they have endured and you might second guess a statement of "get over it", "move on", "you can't grieve forever".
Grieving is a painful, slow process-- wether it be abuse, a death of a loved one, unexplained circumstances, hurtful words, loss of a friendship, loss of a love, grieving doesn't come easy....no matter what the circumstances -- but grief has to happen.
After getting through several of the stages of grief -- forgiveness can happen...forgiveness can free your soul and your life and you mind. Forgiveness can move you to love deeper and larger and better then ever!
Forgivess is freeing, it's release, it's the wind beneath your wings (yes I love Bette Midler too!). Forgiveness -- if we could all grasp the meaning and the use of forgiveness -- the ability not to dwell -- the ability to set your mind free of the pain and the hurt and want and the agony.
The freedom from yourself and your thoughts. The freedom to be the real, the raw -- YOU! The ability to release and share who you truly are -- and to share the pain and the agony and the process that you have been through.
FORGIVENESS.....this was shared with me today. I haven't heard this song before. I love 70x70....and this song by Matt West, for other reasons...read the words, listen to the song. FORGIVENESS -- set yourself free.
Praying for lives to be changed....love to all.
"There is no end to what its power can do, So let it go and be amazed by what you see through eyes of grace....Show me how to love the unlovable, Show me how to reach the unreachable....Help me now to do the impossible ....FORGIVENESS" - Matthew West
