For I hold you by your right hand – I, the Lord your God. And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.
I hadn’t done anything to ‘deserve’ what I was going through, but that wouldn’t have changed the road that lied ahead. So I chose happiness, forgiveness, and faith. Isn’t that what Christianity is all about? If God shows me mercy every single day for my shortcomings, why shouldn’t I replicate that same characteristic? The man who caused this accident has struggles of his own; alcoholism is an illness, so rather than being angry, I should pray for his healing, just like people were praying for mine.
