18/30 {Forgiven}

18. What has been the most difficult thing you have had to forgive?

That's a tough one. 

I would have to say my biological dad. He hasn't (and isn't) the best dad out there. I haven't spoken to him in many many years. I carried around this hurt for a long time. I struggled with why I should forgive him. He hurt me, I should get an apology and then be able to forgive. One day I realized that for this pain and hurt to go away I needed to forgive him. Jesus forgave me for my sins, surely I can forgive someone else. I wasn't able to forgive him to his face but in my heart and to my Heavenly Father I was able to forgive him. That day, a heavy burden was lifted from my shoulders.
