#230 – When you go through rivers of difficulty
I see the hurt and the pain. It was unjust and extremely unfair, but hear this! You will survive, you will live and not die. I have given you a daily portion, to last beyond this moment. Just focus on today, tomorrow has its own.
It is time to let go of the pain and the perpetrators, to search diligently for forgiveness. Not for their sake, but for your own. Can you forgive those that betrayed you, those that robbed you of innocence, even your mother, father or a sibling?
The most difficult person to forgive is the one in the mirror. The moment has come to give yourself permission to accept forgiveness, to be guilt and shame free. You have punished yourself enough.
Stop suffering at your own hands, it will not change anything. What is done is done. Stand up, move away from the old you and do better. You have paid a high cost, walk in your freedom.
“When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.”
