A little girl teaches me what true forgiveness means
Myriam, a girl who has been driven from her home and been taken away from her friends because of ISIS, taught me an important lesson in forgiveness. I have harboured anger in my heart because of the cruel and barbaric actions of ISIS. In as difficult as it is for me I hear the Father’s call that I am to forgive them. I am to leave ISIS in the hands of God. If a little girl can forgive such horrifying inhumanity, then how much more am I and I pray all of us inspired to forgive those who have hurt us. I know. It is much easier said than done. If Myriam can make that journey of forgiveness, so must I.
The peace of the Lord be with Myriam, her family, friends, all who are the victims of terrorists and all of you..
