Where was God? (Part 3)


“I forgive him.” Blessings eased these three words to the judge who, in disbelief, adjusted her owl-wired glasses on her nose bridge. Really Blessings? The courtroom air was charged with indistinct hubbub.

Forgiveness doesn’t diminish justice; it just entrusts it to God.

Blessings did not want to continue harboring anger and bitterness in her heart anymore. Anger gives the devil a space in our hearts,a room to rent. He moves in before you know it and stinks up the whole place. With resentment, temper, anger, low self-esteem and what-not. Evict him. Don’t give him time of day. Tell him, in the name of Jesus, to pack his bags and hit the road.

When it comes to forgiveness, all of us are beginners. No one owns a secret formula. As long as you are trying to forgive, you are forgiving. It’s when you no longer try that bitterness sets in. she had cracked the nut of ‘Where Was God?’. He was at work. Teaching her how to forgive and leave all the cares and vengeance at His feet.

Stop harboring grudges, negative thoughts, memories or feelings inside you. Forgive that guy who badly offended you. Outrageous as it may seem, Jesus died for them too. If He thinks they are worth forgiving, they are. Does that make forgiveness easy? No. Quick? Seldom. Painless? It wasn’t for Blessings.

 Let go and let God take the wheel. Sometimes it may feel like He is on a holiday when things go south. But He is still there and He’s still a good God.  Watching and waiting for His perfect time to showcase His impeccable glory in a mighty way.
