The art of Forgiveness



Is forgiveness an art? Indeed it is and it is way harder than pursing your masters degree or your Phd.

There are many stories we can relate to each other through the experiences we have lived through ourselves or with others. Often times,we forgive because we had to and I even came up with excuses such as,’ I love God therefore I forgive’. hahaha! Jiunnli, not good enough. Try again.

This book I am reading, it is so good. Trying to finish a book in a schedule such as mine is very much close to suicidal. I’ve been wanting to read this book for so long and i am glad i did!

‘Pursued by the Shepherd’ by Karon Phillips Goodman

It is so good that. . . . . .ah, go read it yourself! =P  Gawd, I am bad at book review.

You may heard alot of stories about forgiveness but these stories still do not make forgiving any easier. Its tough to forgive others who hurt us or someone we love because the agony of the event is so real, so deep and so alive. We cannot separate these pain from the person who caused it, so every time we feel hurt from whatever happened,  we see that person’s face and immediately we are filled with hurt.

I see forgiveness as a giant mountain. I see it impossible to move this mountain. In fact, i din even wanna revisit this huge mountain of mine. But like many other things, forgiveness, i now see, is a journey. A journey that requires alot of strength from God and alot of work on my side.  Without God, forgiving is a painful process.

I believe in God’s beautiful timing. I know He is working on what has happened, what remains, and what is going to be for me. He knows, that within our broken heart is the life He planted-the vine that needs light to grow- and He will restore it to us

Its time to forgive but it is so tough =(
