You deserve to stop suffering because of what other people have done to you.
Have you ever felt stuck in a cycle of unresolved pain, playing offenses over and over in your mind? You know you can’t go on like this, but you don’t know what to do next. Lysa TerKeurst has wrestled through this journey. But in surprising ways, she’s discovered how to let go of bound-up resentment and overcome the resistance to forgiving people who aren’t willing to make things right.
With deep empathy, therapeutic insight, and rich Bible teaching coming out of more than 1,000 hours of theological study, Lysa will help you:
- Learn how to move on when the other person refuses to change and never says they’re sorry.
- Walk through a step-by-step process to free yourself from the hurt of your past and feel less offended today.
- Discover what the Bible really says about forgiveness and the peace that comes from living it out right now.
- Identify what’s stealing trust and vulnerability from your relationships so you can believe there is still good ahead.
- Disempower the triggers hijacking your emotions by embracing the two necessary parts of forgiveness.
The act of forgiveness is a command from God and one that we cannot carry on by our own power without the help of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. There is great freedom that comes from forgiveness, freeing ourselves from the bondage of other people’s sin or harms against us. For Christians, the cross is the paradigm for existence and living; which leads to Joy and Peace from knowing Christ. This book is for anyone willing to know more about forgiveness and ready to release their burdens to Christ who is willing and able to redeem all our past transgressions to a brand-new future.
