Day 36 of 365

Forgiveness is never easy but in the end after the battle within ourselves to forgive that person has won and we can look back on the experience as part of our life then we are truly free.

For so long I always felt like the words I am sorry, were so hard to say, but in actuality the hardest words to say to someone is, I Forgive you. Anyone can take the blame to end a fight or to make things better but to forgive someone for hurting you or disappointing you is so much harder, because when we forgive we should also forget. Of course we are only human and most of us have a hard time forgetting especially when you go through something traumatic or heartbreaking, but if you forgive that person and let go of that pain and hurt and move on it will get easier. 

Each day gets easier for me and to forgive the monster is a hard thing to do, but if I want to truly find happiness in my life, I have to let go and forgive because if I don't move forward, what he did will always control my life and he has no right to that part of me. 

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, Who called me here below
Will be forever mine
Will be forever mine
You are forever mine
