Today’s Quote: A Christian is not perfect, he is just forgiven! – Unknown
My thoughts: I have been through so much that I haven’t told anyone not even my closes friends and family. I had a lot of angry inside of me during the time I was pregnant and after. It had so much to do with my baby father at the time I wont go into details, but just to let you know it was a very hard time for me. Most of the time I resented the person he was and became after the fact. I was left to raise my daughter on my own. Don’t get me wrong I have a lot of love from my friends and family that has been there from the very beginning and until now and they have been my biggest supporter.
The reason I brought this up is because I have read a quick short story and it remained me of what I went through, but it also reminded me to forgive and not let the hatred of what he did overcomes me for moving forward. At the end of the day I am a mother first and I have a little girl to protect. If I keep the hatred that I have for him inside of me how can I move on to better myself and my child future if I keep holding on to it. The best way and best thing for me to do is to forgive. I am not perfect I make mistake and still making mistake still to this day. Each one of those mistake back then and now made me the person that I am today. It took me awhile to forgive him even though it still hard to forget what he did I knew from the bottom of my heart I had to do this for myself and not for him or anyone else. Cause if I did not let it go it would have overcame me and I didn’t want that. So my thoughts for everybody that is reading this if you have any anger, bitterness, hatred, or etc. in you heart let it go and forgive. Because at the end of the day they are living their lives as if nothing happen while we are holding on to resentment and that anger that is easy to consume us in a worst way.
Forgiveness is powerful that leads the way and love is consume from the heart.
