Recently I came across this book and from the beginning, Rebecca (the amazing author), reaches in and grabs you! Yes, there are moments you want her to let go because your heightened emotions cannot contain the sheer anger within! And just as you allow your rage to escalate you find your heart wanting her to not let go; for this divine life story, Rebecca’s life story of FORGIVENESS, gripped me like the elation of an extreme roller-coaster ride! Forgiveness is the key to a soul’s freedom; freedom from the strangling grip of bitterness, anger, rage, resentment, a calloused- heart, depression, self-loathing, self-absorption, negativity and the dead end road of a deep, dark pit!
Oh, to not give away the very heart of this book in my description is taking everything within me. To see God’s divine hand in this family’s pain journey brings HOPE to the tragedies of life. When I closed the very last page of this book I immediately uttered the words, “WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!” Aren’t they? His word is truth and He simply whispers to us that without Him we can do NOTHING but with Him, ALL things are possible!
There are too many death-grips of this life that are rapidly attempting to push us further under and UN-FORGIVENESS is berrying hopes and dreams by the droves! Some are even sleeping with the enemy of un-forgiveness only to wake up clothing themselves with it too! STOP IT! Stop trying to move forward without forgiving your past and those who have negatively effected it!
From the words of Rebecca, “Forgiveness is the language of heaven.” It frees the soul to rest in the security of Christ and walk forward not clinging to the past but being empowered by it. It releases the grip of bondage and secures emotional health for future generations. Forgiveness is a CHOICE not a FEELING; often it takes daily recognition of where we came from to get to where were going.
CHOOSE TO FORGIVE!
Be tender towards the things of the Lord… He will restore you!
Speak the language of heaven!
