Forgiveness is a gift

This video is AMAZING!
Quite possibly,
at this moment,
my favorite on the web.

I’ve had some things in my life that were really hard to forgive.
I have found that the only way I was able to forgive
was because somebody perfect gifted me with the ability to do so.
Christ was that perfect example of taking Himself
and His own pain out of the situation.
He showed me the way,
when I thought it was impossible.
His charity allowed Him to care for others perfectly.
His love for others made it possible for Him to not be hurt by their issues.
“Forgive them Father for they know not what they do.”
We all have the beckoning call to be like Christ.
The only way to be like Him, is to go to Him,
and let Him wash us over with His grace.
As humans, it is very hard to love others in the same capacity
that we love God and we love ourselves,
but that is the requirement.
Only when we do learn this power,
can we overcome our trials and our sorrows.
Why is it a requirement?
Because God knows that is the only way to our happiness.
I am so grateful for my Savior Jesus Christ.
I know that He is the only way I have been able to forgive.
He is the only way that I can learn to love perfectly.
I know He is the Savior of the world.
But, today, I am mostly grateful
that He is my Savior, my Shepherd, my Mentor, my Perfect Example,
my Advocate with the Father, my Brother, and my Friend.
