Conclusion

UN FORGIVENESS in one’s heart is one of the greatest things that I believe causes so much trouble in one’s life. Why because I lived in UN forgiveness many years and can testify of the mercy and grace that God gave to me in forgiving me when His son Jesus Christ who died on the cross for my sins and all my UN forgiveness against those that I had in my heart. If we forgive those that have done us wrong and repent before our Heavenly Father and ask Him to forgive us then He will forgive us and heal our hearts and give us peace, joy and comfort.  Take the time and go to our About Us page and click on our testimonies of what God has done for my family and me.
