Reconciliation is not a requirement. It’s the desired outcome, but it can only truly take place when four things have happened.
Forgiveness is one of the ultimate Christian virtues, right after love. It “sets the prisoners free.” Except in your life. It keeps you defenseless and bound to a person, or people, determined to keep harming you. Forgiveness seems like a super highway to destruction, the restart button for more craziness and pain. So, should you keep forgiving someone who keeps hurting you…and how?
In today’s episode, Rachel and Natalie answer three questions from listeners: How do I forgive my abuser? How do I deal with the emotional pain of losing my marriage? Why do my older kids side with their abusive father?
Where does all that anger come from? What can we do about it? What does the process of forgiveness actually look like? And how can we put it all together so we can really FLY FREE?
