The Power of Forgiveness
Corrie ten Boom, a survivor of the Holocaust, whose sister was killed in the camps, went to Germany with a message of God's forgiveness in 1947.
She then began a ministry to Holocaust survivors.
She later said, "Those who forgave their captors, an understandably difficult thing to do, went on to live prosperous lives. Those who continued to nurse their bitterness, continued to suffer and never found peace or healing for their wounds . . ."
"Whenever you stand up to pray, forgive whatever you have against anyone, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins.
Forgiving others can be a very difficult thing to do, but it IS Gods Way to healing and freedom.
"It is for freedom you have been set free"
God help me to forgive today!
