The Power of Forgiveness Will Set You Free


As a nation, that needs reform, America needs a leader with a loud voice to build the country and to combat hate. Instead, it is being led by a white nationalist, racialist, resentful person who promotes violence.

It’s beyond me why the leader of America or any person living in America would choose to encourage hatred toward thy neighbor, condemn another person, promote violence based on culture, color, or a person resources.

My prayer is we learn how to “Overcome Hate,” and be transformed to let go of grudges, forgive the one who hurt us. Embrace forgiveness and shut up the people, that says a change in different race can’t be done, and allow reason to move us forward.

I believe in what Martin Luther King Jr. spoke on, repent to right racial wrongs and something Malcolm X talked about, invite a nation of sinners in a spiritual walk. If we the American people would hear Martin and Malcolm evolution, we could see a new kind of improvement and salvation.

The question, what is forgiveness? Forgiveness signifies various things to separate people. Ordinarily, it means a choice to let go of hate and get over the feelings of retaliation.

Forgiveness is something that is hard for many to do after being hurt. Nonetheless, a person should forgive another as it is the best way to heal. Forgiveness purifies the soul and eliminates the anxieties; this is why it is such a dominant weapon, and it is more compelling because the person is in control of a much-needed recovery.
