I realise now, forgiveness does not take the pain away. Healing the hurt comes later. They are two separate events. I was very confused with why I still hurt even though I have forgiven people. It made me think and question, had I really forgiven?
I now know I have truly forgiven all who have hurt me, but now I need to ask for healing. I started asking the same night and, yes it works!! Amen.
Now I am going home to start reading and seeking God to heal the hurts which I know are still with me. But this course has really made it all so much clearer to me now.
