Forgive Yourself

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you. You that went to war with yourself just to love him or her. You that went to war with your family just to love him or her. You that went to war with your Church just to love him or her. You that went to war with everyone in your life just to love him or her. You that didn’t care about anyone just because you wanted to be good for him or her. You that was broken from a young age — I am talking about you right now — this letter is for you because loving him or her was like going to war but unfortunately you never came back the same.

I know you never chose to love them, your heart did. And even though they gave it back to you in pieces and left you heartbroken, don’t give up on love because even broken crayons can still color. Don’t give up on yourself because there is someone out there for you. Don’t give up and don’t allow how they treated you to become your definition of love.

I also know it hurts when you go through something that kills you inside and you have to act like it doesn’t affect you at all but you must realize that a million words would not bring them back because you have tried already. Neither would a million tears bring them back because you have cried too. So have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Forgive yourself and those who couldn’t understand your journey and what real pain felt like.

Yes, you have no doubt suffered because of them. Yes, they have hurt you and you probably don’t feel like being a blessing to them after what they have done to you. But none of these changes the Word of God and His plan for you. Pray over them and, place them in God’s hands because it may be time to let GO and let GOD be for you.

Letting go might look impossible and moving forward might look very difficult, but we declare today “it shall come to pass”. Every opportunity and everything that needs to be adjusted will be adjusted. Where there needed to be a turnaround, it will be turned around.

In Him,
~Ali Papa.
