Learning to Forgive

The only way to truly forgive is through and with the help of Jesus Christ. This video shows how a man was able to forgive someone for taking away the life of his wife and family. I know that the only way he was able to do this was with the help of prayer. I know that Heavenly Father will always support us when we are lonely and anguished. He is waiting for us to come to him to ask him to help us heal and forgive someone that has hurt us. Watch how this man used the strength of the Lord to get through this horrific trial in his life.

This inspired me beyond words. I know that what this man is talking about is real and can be real for anyone who needs to forgive. Holding a grudge is the last thing that our Heavenly Father wants us to do. It hurts us WAY more than it does the other person that we are holding the grudge against. Don't hurt yourself, forgive. Learn how to do it with the help of the Lord. Remember what Christ said when he was on the cross? Rather than saying how mad he was at the Jews for crucifying him he said "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." He forgave these people who did HORRIFIC things to him. Let the Lord help you to forgive those who have done horrific things to you. He loves you and wants to help you. I know that through the Atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ that we can forgive people if only we rely on Him.
