How do I Forgive?
Forgive them, you say. How do I do that? Do you know what they did to me? The deep wounds left behind from their words? The pain inflicted upon me by their actions? Why should I forgive them? Do they deserve forgiveness?
Do you know how many tears I shed over this? The sorrow I felt, the emptiness deep inside that dwells in the raw space left behind by their words of hate? I could barely get out of bed. My struggle is ongoing, desperately trying to achieve peace and closure.
I am stronger than I look, a fierce warrior. Look how much I have already overcome to get where I am today. You are right. I never realized how strong I am; with Christ's power, I can do it! I can forgive; I can overcome! I will get through this trial, this test of my faith. Look at how much Jesus overcame on the cross for me. My struggle is nothing compared to His sacrifice. He carried so much for me. Let me see what His word says, dig into it, and find strength and comfort in the wellspring of living water. Thank you for reminding me that I am worthy; I am a Daughter of the King—a fierce warrior.

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
