let. it. go.

When those we love hurt us, it leaves our emotions raw and gaping, gasping for air. It scars our hearts, our memories. It scars our friendships and it sometimes even leaves us with an injured outlook on life, on people.

And we just can’t forget.

But whatever happened to ‘forgiving those who trespass against us’? Does the Lord really expect us to show grace to those who do us harm?

There once was a girl who wondered the same thing, after the time of war in Germany and that evil man who would crush & torture God’s people. And this is her story …

“It was in a church in Munich that I saw him—a balding, heavyset man in a gray overcoat, a brown felt hat clutched between his hands. People were filing out of the basement room where I had just spoken, moving along the rows of wooden chairs to the door at the rear.

It was 1947 and I had come from Holland to defeated Germany with the message that God forgives.

  1. Wow, just wow. I’ve read what Corrie ten Boom did before, but it’s good to have a reminder. Somedays it’s hard to forgive, but, like you said, God forgives us many times more. Thank you for this post.

    • “Somedays it’s hard to forgive, but, like you said, God forgives us many times more.” <–Very true! And yes, Corrie ten Boom's story really touched my heart and convicted me when I first read it. Powerful story. Thank you for commenting! 🙂
