Forgiving Your Parents — 4 Comments

  1. I really think this could be simply titled forgiveness as it can apply to many different of relationships. Thanks for the article.

  2. This message is definitely for me. I can remember growing up in a God fearing household, in which I had love for both parents, a loving mother who was humble, meek and compassionate to all. But my father had love for God, but was controlling, had insecurities, in which he demanded I greeting when he came home from work everyday, in which I had to meet him outside as he pulled into the driveway. He received more chastisements on the rear end then I can count, for some things I didn’t do or commit.
    Actually for quite some time I was afraid of my father in which everything that he did concerning me, whether it was verbal abuse or close to being physically abused, I was confused in the beginning as to why he treated me like he did, then confusion turned into somewhat resentment, which turned into fierce anger. This changed my life as I begin to get older, embracing so called love from the streets, it made act out, channeling that anger into street battles, willing to handle business by all means necessary if I felt it was called for.
    I still had love for the Lord, but couldn’t understand why God who I love dearly allowed me to experience the deep hurts that I went through, as child, in the church and on the streets, up until now experiencing pain that would have driven most people insane, depressed, suicidal or hateful. I could go on, but I will say this message helped me more than you know to begin the rest of the healing process within myself and life.
