Unless you have been through something like this, it is very difficult to understand.

We live our life each day building bubbles of resentment, pain and hate that we store away and forget that it exists. We all take the job of laying down judgement to the people that have hurt us or hurt the people that we love. It hurts to carry the cross of hate on our shoulders. It is a job never meant for us. GOD gave his only son to save the world and provide forgivness for our sins. Forgivness is part of the healing process to inner peace & happinest. Holding hate and judgment in your heart will not turn time back and replace what you have lost. FORGIVE and you shall be forgiven. FORGIVE and you will teach forgiveness, FORGIVE and you shall be free to be happy. Take lifes pain to share with the world to save others lives. No loss is in vain.

I was once mad at someone and refused to forgive them. However God told me to ask that person for forgiveness so i did... And after a tragic loss I'm very glad i listened other wise I would have lost my friend and never have gotten the chance to be forgiven and to forgive him.

It's ok to forgive, even though that feels like you're betraying your son. Been there. Call me anytime.

With God on our side, we can MOVE MOUNTAINS! We can LEARN to forgive and, with God's help, have FAITH that he will LET us forgive! I love you so much mom and will be praying for you always.

This makes me want to forgive people more. The joy from forgiveness is much more satisfying then harboring ill feelings towards people! Good story, very uplifting! :)

Marie, I don't understand why you have had to travel such a hard road, but I do know you are the most amazing and Godly woman I have ever met. God knows your heart and he has a special plan for you which I am sure includes being reunited with Stephen. Trust that you are the incredible person that I know and love and who has touched so many people in positive ways. You ARE proof of His love!

Thank you so much for this song. I lost my son October 27, 2002. God has been dealing with me to forgive. I have been praying and seeking God's direction on what to do and how to do it. I know I must go and forgive. My son was going to take his ACT test and the guidence counselor told him he was at the wrong school. My son did not wait for a explanation he got in his car and started out to the other school, It was raining that day and my son hydroplaned and hit another man and they both were killed. I have never gone to Mr. Vickery's family to tell them that I am so sorry for this. I am truly sorry! My son was an amazing young man of God, and I know where he is, but without forgiveness I don't know if I will ever be with him again. Please pray for me and pray for direction of what I am to do. I know God is using this song and another song The proof of your love by King and Country. If I don't have love and forgiveness I am nothing. I cannot walk the walk without Gods grace and peace, and I MUST forgive. Thank your Matthew and Renee for using this song to help me to know what to do...FORGIVE AND LOVE... I want to be a Proof of your love and forgiveness.

I Killed Tim in 2000. I knew God forgave me and his family forgave me in the courtroom. Letters were read to me and Tims nephew was quoted in one. He was just a child but he said to his mother," Mom, since Jesus forgave us shouldn't we forgive Kevin?". I feel to my knees and cried uncontrolably. I felt the forgiveness of Jesus through the family. For the next few years I could not forgive myself. I was self-destructing even though every chance I got to share my testimony, which I call God's testimony, I could not recover from the guilt. Finally Jesus sent a miracle my way which help me accept this forgiveness. How could I not forgive myself when God and Tim's family forgave me. I confessed it as a sin and began feeling some relief from this self imposed shame and guilt. Have I been able to completely forgive myself? To some extent, but I think about this almost every day almost 12 years later. I know I will always carry this to some degree as Paul and his thorn in his flesh. It keeps me close to God if I allow the love and forgiveness in my spirit. I know it is God's plan to continue to share this miracle that came from a disaster. I recently moved from Texas and now live in Florida. I wish to be connected with this mother who also forgave. I need to start sharing this forgiveness again as well from the other side of drunk driving. Philipians 4:13 Sincerely in faith, Kevin Bushnell kvncbshnll@gmail.com 903-650-4540

unforgiveness is a POISON we drink thinking it's hurting someone else, but it's NOT, it ONLY HURTS the person who is drinking it!!! GET RID OF IT!!!

I wish, with all my heart, that I could be as forgiving, but it's very very hard to do, especially when the person you can't forgive doesn't even care that he did these terrible things to you. Especially when he tried to kill me, and to kill my husband. He just doesn't care. No one ever held him responsible. It's just so hard.

forgiveness really does make you free and knowing that god forgives you as well just makes it all the better to keep doing it"}.
