I Forgive You

I forgive you.

You carefully positioned your words to cut like a sword through the weakest parts of my armor. Slicing at my heart.

I forgive you.

You’ve taken shots at me. Ones you know will harm me. Hurt my family. Get in the way of my path with Him.

I forgive you.

You have tried to destroy my self worth. Made me question if I should be here. Made me wonder why I was put here.

I forgive you.

Knowingly or not, you’ve hurt me. I would never admit that to your face, but I want you to know that I forgive you. I love you. You are so much more than a few moments.

Now, I want to say thank you. Thank you for teaching me what it looks like to kneel in grace. Thank you for allowing me to grow from something that was meant for my harm.

Father, I pray over this sweet heart. Somewhere, this person has hurt and has decided that I’m a target. I pray that you forgive them, for they know not what they do. Bless them in ways that only you can. Help them to understand their worth in you. Wrap your arms around them and breathe life in them. Whisper your love in the craziest of ways and keep them so close to your heart. In Jesus name, Amen.
