Recently someone I love deeply broke my heart.  Their actions literally left me sick to my stomach.  Many tears have been shed, sleep has been lost and even a pound or two have been shed.  But, what I know and learn each day I am not alone.  He who sits in Heaven is never against me nor will he ever hurt me.  Through a very dear friend and mentor I learned that forgiveness can be a true way to free yourself of all the negative emotions that assist betrayal.  In order for my sins to be forgiven I must forgive those who have done wrong by me.  Is this an easy task?  Heck No!  But, if I wish to walk the same path as my Father I better get on board.

It hurts so much when a loved one breaks your heart and spirit.  It is a pain I could never wish upon any being.  But, through forgiveness I am able to gain me back from the darkness.  I am able to hold my head up high and know that my actions are pleasing to God (even when I feel the person does not deserve it).  Forgiveness gives me a strength that I needed and a peace I was missing.  All of this I achieve through God The Father.  I know within my heart that "this too shall past."

Things I Know For Sure:
1. God is fighting for me
2. I have peace in God
3. NO weapon formed against me shall prosper
4. An Abundance of peace, joy, contentment and wisdom surround me
5. Happiness comes from within ME.


  1. I know this feeling well. I was as shocked as you when it happened to me - although I was in mortal pain and close to death when they chose to attack me, I was completely lost. I feel forgiveness and being gentle with oneself is the only path through something like that. But when you are sensitive it really stings. Hope all will be well for you. God bless :)

  2. oh...
    i just am saddened to hear that your kind heart has felt that pain.

    yes, those knowing for sure lists...keep those clutched to your soul.

    for He alone is true to us.

    Love you Tabby!

  3. This is beautiful. One thing I have learned is that forgiveness usually isn't a one-time act. I usually have to forgive again and again for the same wrong. Everytime I feel the bitterness and anger swell up again in my heart, I forgive the wrong again. And eventually, I find it's enough.

    God's peace!

  4. You are utterly correct. As painful and heartwrenching as forgiveness is, we must - it cleanse's us before God.

  5. Forgiveness is surrender. It always hurts to surrender.

    Peace to you.

  6. Tabitha, you do take your strength and guidance from God. It is so evident in your words and faith. Great post.

  7. Tabitha, I'm so sorry for whatever, whoever, has broken your heart. I know what that sort of pain feels like, even though I don't know the specifics of your personal pain. What I've been learning is that God wants our whole heart,and that doesn't necessarily mean a heart that is whole. It may mean scooping up all the broken bits, every little tiny painful piece, and surrendering them all to Him, and His healing grace. I pray for you to feel, deep deep inside, His sweet and tender love for you.

  8. Hi Tabitha,
    I am so sorry that your heart has been broken. I hope the forgiveness you seek comes to you and releases you from this pain.
    Sending you and e-hug, Jodi

  9. Tabby, I'm mad and sad both on your behalf! Such a loving person you are, and to have to have such pain. I don't know what gets into people. I don't know what happened, but I do know that (1) you did not cause it in any way, (2) you have the right to feel as you do, and (3) time will help heal you. Hang in there.


You bless me with your presence! Tabitha♥
