Dr. David Stoops (Forgiving the Unforgivable) offers some final thoughts on the process of forgiveness. Forgiveness usually is not a smooth process from start to finish. Sometimes God steps into the process in unimaginable ways. At other times it seems more like we’re poking along on our own.
Dr. Stoops then expands on those times when we may not feel God’s presence: “But even in those times, the miracle of forgiving is taking place. God always honors the move toward forgiveness- it is His plan for us. When we forgive we are giving God the opportunity to work miracles in our lives in His way and in His time.”
