I have been hurt. Without going into details, there have been three significant events/people in my life that I have had to forgive. I have struggled like crazy to overcome the feelings of anger and bitterness. What has made my journey particularly difficult is that I have had to forgive in the face of unrepentance. There was no true apology. So needless to say, I have read a plethora of books and information on forgiveness.
Recently, I came across my favorite book on the topic, Total Forgiveness by R.T. Kendall. What I loved about this book is that it is so straightforward and practical. Kendall takes us through what forgiveness is, how to know if we have totally forgiven, how we will act if we have forgiven, and how Joseph in Genesis forgave. The last time I had to forgive something major in my life I read this book. I was really struggling with letting go of the pain and moving on. Kendall's book gave me the tools to do just that.
If you are struggling with forgiveness and need some extra help this book is well-worth the read!
