"He was pierced for our transgression, he was crushed for our iniquities . . . and by His wounds we are healed" (Isaiah 53:1, NIV). At the age of six, Sarah McCleary's world came crashing down. Within the span of a few months, her mother, father and grandmother died, and then her older sister-whom she adored-walked out of her life. Sarah was left feeling confused and abandoned. Where had her family gone? Why had they left? Wasn't she pretty enough? Wasn't she smart enough? What was wrong with her? As a result of this childhood trauma, Sarah withdrew into her own world. She built a wall around her heart that nothing could get through-not even the love of God. There she remained, until a remarkable series of events forced her to look at the bitterness in her heart and begin to forgive the sister who had caused her so much pain. In Choosing to Forgive, Sarah tells the incredible story of her journey to healing, wholeness and a new life. She shares her deepest hurts and shows how, with the help of God, she was able to let go of her pain-and how you can do so as well. If you struggle with unforgiveness, bitterness and hardness of heart and are serious about receiving God's healing, Choosing to Forgive is a personal journey you must take.
