Here’s a word from Dawson…
One time I was at a restaurant. I had just spoken to a bunch of people, several thousand teenagers and young adults at some kind of a rally. This girl came up to me. I had been talking about forgiving that night at the rally. And she said to me, “You know what? I’ll never forgive my father.” I said, “Do you know why you feel that way?” She said, “Why?” I said, “Because if you forgive him, then you give up the power over him because he’s hurt you. You’re going to give up your rights to get even and that’s all you have against him.
You have to ask yourself a simple question. Are you stuck? If you are, whatever it takes, get unstuck, because you’ll be glad you did.
Is there someone in your life who needs to hear this message? TheHopeLine has a great eBook to help understand why forgiveness is so important. It’s called Understanding Forgiveness, and you can download it here.
