Forgiveness and God’s Grace by Sharon Milliman

That it was a journey of healing for my body and for my soul. It is a journey because some hurts take a lifetime to forgive and we just can’t do it on our own. We need God to help us. But the WILL to forgive is the first step.

After my Near Death Experience, I learned that with God everything is Grace. Our very existence is by His Grace. He is constantly pouring out His love and grace upon us.

There is a saying” There but for the grace of God go any one of us”.

Truly, it is by His grace that we are where we are in life. As I have said before, when I had my life review, I never felt as though I was being judged. God does not judge us, we judge ourselves standing before Him. But, as I watched my life passing before me, I saw everything I ever said or did and there was no sense of remorse of guilt. All I felt was complete love and total acceptance.

There was no sense of being held bound by any past events nor were there any feelings of anger or resentment or any unresolved issues tying me down and keeping me trapped in time. All had been forgiven. I had let go of everything. I learned that forgiveness is the freedom of letting go.

That it was a journey of healing for my body and for my soul. It is a journey because some hurts take a lifetime to forgive and we just can’t do it on our own. We need God to help us. But the WILL to forgive is the first step.

Forgiveness is a process and it takes time, sometimes it takes years, and in some cases a lifetime. I learned that forgiveness is a creative act that takes us from prisoners of the past with hurtful memories, to strong, loving people living in the present who are free of the chains that kept us bound, and are now at peace. There is peace because all of the unresolved issues, and the hurt, and bitterness are gone which brings peace to the soul and harmony to one’s life. Forgiveness doesn’t mean forgetting the wrong that was done to us; it means no longer feeling the pain that was done.

Unforgiveness, is a chain that keeps us held bound. We don’t have to forgive others. It is not a requirement. But if we want to be free and we want to heal from the hurts of life, then it is something that we need. Normally, the other party, or parties involved don’t care if they are forgiven, especially if they haven’t asked for forgiveness, they have gone on with their lives, completely oblivious to the devastation, and the hurt still left in our heart.

That’s why forgiveness is important; it breaks those chains and frees our heart. We need it in order to grow, otherwise we become stuck. When we become stuck we no longer feel God’s grace.

Of course, It is always there, we just don’t feel it anymore. And then we begin feeling the illusion that God has abandoned us. We need to allow forgiveness to flow through us and around us; and when we are aware that we are now free from those chains that held us bound, we are free to love unconditionally and we can send that unconditional love out into the world around us.

Then, the natural flow of God’s divine love dissolves all the hurt, all the bitterness, all the pain and the sense of being wronged. Then, we can allow His grace to come to us and flow through us, to forgive through us.

There is no more of the illusion of separation, no more feelings of abandonment. Forgiveness is the greatest form of unconditional love and acceptance. It is a gift that he gives us and it is through His grace that we experience this gift.

Oh, quiet now and rest, my beautiful little soul and be at peace, for you are on a journey of wonder and delight.

Come now and rest with me on a beautiful star this glorious velvet night.

Come learn, come share, come give of you and my love and light shall pull you through.

There will be no more endless days and painful choices, so turn a deaf ear to the subtlety in the voices.

You need only have ears to hear the truth. The truth is inside of you, and you know the way.

I love you my dearest little one. Just reach out and let me hold your gentle little hand and I will help you to understand.

Oh precious little soul, come sit with me for just a while, come laugh, come sing, and share a smile.

Dear sweet child of mine, listen carefully; hear my words, for they are set upon the wind.

Let Joy and happiness enter in, and you will hear the Angels sing.

Come out of the shadows, and be a part; this is not the end, it’s just the start.

Let my love and Joy come alive inside of your heart.

Stand up and uncover the light you try so hard to hide, for it sparkles like diamonds in the velvet sky.

Walk straight and tall with your head held high. For you know, you are precious in my eyes.

Let the truth conquer all. And the light of your soul will shine bright in the Heavens for all eternity. Do not be afraid for I will shelter you from the storm.

Dearest one, come and sit with me for a while. Rest your eyes and feel the out pouring of my Grace.

Come and sit with me for a while. Come laugh, come sing, come share a smile.

Come and rest with me on a star this glorious velvet night.
