“Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”
Much easier said than done. How do we find the courage and grace to forgive those who have wronged us?
Yvonne Ortega’s book, Moving from Broken to Beautiful Through Forgiveness, is a textbook on this very topic.
Ortega has written a very personal, heartfelt account of her own struggle with unforgiveness. How do you forgive someone who has abused you and your child? Years and years of financial, verbal, emotional, and physical abuse? Ortega discovered that this comes only through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Each chapter is filled with scripture, laced with prayer and supported with facts and quotes that help us understand the effects of unforgiveness. Very real emotional, mental and physical effects that have long-lasting consequences if not dealt with in a positive manner.
The best part is that Ortega’s book gives the reader a plan. Nine steps that, if followed, will take you from broken to beautiful, from victim to victor. It will release you from bondage and set you free. That’s what God wants for each of us. He wants you to experience the freedom that comes only through forgiveness.
If you are struggling with unforgiveness in your life, I encourage you to get this book. Read it, cover to cover, put the plan in place and allow God to do a mighty work in your life.
