What if your healing required you having mercy on the one that caused your pain or trauma? I mean, you having mercy on whoever violated you, hurt you in some form and fashion, or caused and created certain agonizing events in your life? Would you? Could you? Should you? WILL you?
What if instead of hating them, condemning them, you are prompted to show them mercy? What if that would set you free?
What if, for your healing to take place, you had to have mercy on them? Would you continue being justifiably angry, or would you let go and have mercy?
What if by forgiving them, no matter what they did to you, you forgave them instead of holding on to bitterness, and you become whole again?
What if, by showing them love, (love? Yes!), you are able to experience the power of your uniqueness again?
What if, by showing them compassion, you are able to rebuild your life again?
What if by wishing them well, you are able to bring in beautiful moments into your world?
What if by blessing them, you are able to attract abundance of life into your life?
What if you mercifully tried to see their perspective, and why they did what they did to you?
Nonsensical perspective is it not? Such a hard, painful, almost impossible thing to do.
But in all that nonsense may very well lie your deliverance, healing, gift and purpose.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Matthew 5:7 (NIV)
If you cannot face them, you can release them, and yourself, on paper. Write it down. You know? And set yourself free!
