Tears gushed down my face, sobs racked my body. A quarter century must have passed until the tears finally fell. But when they did it seemed like an ocean of emotions suddenly burst forth from the depths of my soul. I had given my life to the Lord almost a decade earlier. I was a married woman, working for the church, a missionary in Korea but devastated by the pain of that memory. “Lord, how do you expect me to forgive?” The pain, the feelings of rejection, the years of emotional abuse were all as real to me as though they had taken place yesterday. The memory of that day is crystal clear, the results of a shattered little soul in the person that I am. Slowly, the Lord, the Potter of my life is taking the anger, molding me, a soul stuck in the memory of a painful childhood and healing me, making me a daughter of the Almighty God. “Lord, help me to love.”
