I would be willing to gamble that I am stepping into a subject that may hurt some feelings, bring up past mistakes and/or cause pain. It is not my intent to cause strife. I write this hub for my own therapy, as forgiveness has been a very strong issue in my life. I think it is probably an issue in many lives. How is it we can forgive those who have wronged us in such terrible ways like: murder, rape, child molestation, and many other crimes. How about those smaller things? A cheater, a lie, maybe a stolen item or a family member who has done you wrong? How do we forgive?

I have been on both sides of the fence. Let's take a look:

These are some of the occurrences that I have had issues with forgiveness on.

What about the things I need forgiveness for?

  • I was in prison for selling marijuana. How many learned drugs from me?
  • I have stolen.
  • I have lied.
  • I have cheated.

But worst of all, I murdered. Yes I killed a man.

Something you never knew about me. Will the cops come an arrest me now because I am admitting it? I doubt it because they were there too. Everyone of you helped me kill this man. I ask forgiveness for this murder daily. Do you?

He never deserved the death, but I did it anyway.

Was I drunk or high at the time? I don't think so.

I have a picture of this man that I seek forgiveness in killing, for it was I who caused his death.

Will He Forgive Me?

The answer is yes. He already did.

1 John 1:9

So why can't I forgive? I believe I can.

Mom and Dad, I forgive you.

Matthew 26:28

Those of you who showed me sinning ways, I forgive you.

Mark 11:25

David Olson, though it is very hard, I forgive you.

Matthew 6:14-15

Angie Hemphill Wright and Sheriff Wrinkle and others in the Laclede county Sheriff department, I forgive you.

Numbers 14:19-21

Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Peters, Missouri-all staff, I forgive you.

Matthew 6:9-15

Hard But Right

I feel a heavy load that has lifted and I feel Jesus holding me right now.

I praise Him, oh how I praise Him.

His blessings are wonderful and you can have them too.

Forgiveness is difficult, but it is the way. We must forgive; He forgives us.

May God fill you with the blessings and strength He has filled me with. No matter the crimes against you, forgiveness is attainable.

May your day, your week, and your year be filled with God's love, peace and mercy. God bless you all!

      Forgiveness is key. If a Christian were a stick of rock and you broke him, the writing inside would say "forgiven" - not, church goer, believer, good guy BUT forgiven.

      Greg, I am soooo proud of you. All things ARE possible through Christ who strengthens you. I always knew you had it in you. I pray all the time for you and your happiness. I'm God has a huge smile on his face and his arms wide open to you. Again I am very proud. There are some out there with a lot less trials than you that don't want to surrender for fear of looking weak. You have become very strong

      Yes, you did it, you made it there. Forgiving yourself and others is the way to salvation, to peace and love that will surround you with the warmth, the strength, the support you need. You feel the love within and you can share it outside. God bless you , my you keep on seeking love and peace. You are indeed loved and appreciated and the Light that entered your heart and life wil keep on growing.

      Wow!... Very encouraging... Opening up to everyone like you've just done shows an honest and truthful side in you, Greg. I honestly hope, this public act, helps you heal spiritually... and by doing so, help others confront their own grudges and forgive, in God's name, sinners and their very own sins... personally and against mankind in general. God bless.
