Matthew West - Forgiveness (Official Lyric Video)



  • 2013-06-19T18:42:24

Michelle, my prayers for you and your family and for all others who have lost to a DUI. My fiancée was murdered in January 1980 by a drunk driver. It took a lot of years to move past the hurt and to forgive the man who did it. I was never able to tell the guy --- I was in the army and I was living in Italy, even then it took years for forgiveness towards him to come. Susan was driving home from school in CA when it happened. A few years afterwards, I was told he also died from the accident. I commend you for being able to forgive the young lady. May the Holy Spirit wrap you in His arms of comfort.

I'll never forget the 1st time I heard this song, I was getting out of my car when I got home, & I was listening & turned KLove station up loud & heard every word & started crying, knowing I had to learn to forgive & allow to bee forgiven. Thank You, Matthew West for sing a song I wish I would have heard 30 years ago, but I sincerely appreciate it even more NOW. God Bless & <3 Mzzb.

Beautiful song and I can relate to it very well. I know how unforgiving can destroy a person and how forgiving does set you free. Unforgiving is something that will eat you alive and destroy your soul. Thank You for this wonderful song and Thank You, Jesus for showing me how to forgive.

Thank you for taking an example of a very sad situation and showing how only by the grace and mercy of God, someone can extend forgiveness beyond all understanding. I am forever touched by this song in my own personal pilgrim's walk to exercise forgiveness for even the lil' things in life because of the awesome lyrics and powerful true story behind the music. thank you, In His Service, Mrs. C.S. Rutherford Montgomery, Il.

We can choose to hate. God gave us free will. But forgiveness was a gift to us at the Cross and we can be the heroes in this life and forgive. It is powerful and liberating. It is a blessing of grace from Jesus to us to give to others.
