I couldn’t let it go.
I said I did. I even said I forgave him. I tried every day to convince myself that I did not hate my biological father.
But the truth?
I hadn’t forgiven him at all.
My biological father was only in my life for a short time, but it was long enough to leave memories and scars that hurt. Deep inside of my heart I was so bitter towards him for the things he had done. I wanted him to hurt the way I had hurt. Holding onto my bitterness felt like a way to punish him.
But here's the thing: Jesus did not die for you to be chained to your past. He died to set you free.
Jesus died so that we might surrender to Him all our burdens of sin, fear, and care and live as victorious over-comers by His grace.
So.... HOW do we surrender our lives to God?
