Overcoming the Impossible

In our culture, forgiveness is not a topic that is easily understood, done or felt. We tend to walk around carrying our knapsack full of anger, bitterness and hatred. If someone has offended us, we don't forgive, but seek a way to get back or we carry our anger towards them.

A bitter heart, leads to an unhappy life full of resentment. I don't want to live that way and neither do you.

This book is like a devotional book with 50 stories of people have gone through through tremendous tragedy, loss, pain and FORGIVENESS. When you read the stories of some of these individuals, you know that they would not be able to humanly forgive for some of the things they have experienced, but only through the grace of God! This book is amazing and gave me goosebumps as I was reading it. Truly, this was a game changer. It started to remind me that in certain areas of my life, I'm holding on to some bitterness, when I need to be forgiving others. If you identify and could use some work in this area, I suggest picking up this book. I can't say enough good stuff about this book. It is small and can fit in your purse or in a brief case for a lunch other devotional reading. It just brings you back to the reality of what's important in life. 

Thank you Thomas Nelson for helping me overcome the impossible!
