I think the first step is to understand that forgiveness does not exonerate the perpetrator. Forgiveness liberates the victim. It's a gift you give yourself.




We cannot embrace God's forgiveness if we are so busy clinging to past wounds and nursing old grudges.
Forgiveness is about empowering yourself,  rather than empowering your past.
It is your passion that empowers you to be able to do that thing you were created to do.
But I think my mistake became the chemistry for my miracles. I think that my tests became my testimonies.




We think that forgiveness is weakness,  but it's absolutely not; it takes a very strong person to forgive.
If you learn how to forgive others for not being strong, then people can learn how to forgive you for your own issues.
We don't know what tomorrow will give us or where it will take USA but we should be thankful because it is a CHANCE, a chance to live and to correct our mistake and us to learn more things about LIFE.
God has shown me that conducting our lives to look like " The Untouchables "- looking like I have it all together,  like we are perfect -does not leave the straight path for others to follow.
I recognize one thing about pain....It knows no color, it knows no religion,  it is not prejudice.  Pain is just pain.
