Forgiveness by Matthew West

By Matthew West

There is a story behind this song that will touch you deep down inside and leave you asking yourself if you could do the same. It is the story of a woman who lost her daughter in an accident to a drunk driver. Even after the man was convicted to 22 years in prison, the mother could not release her feelings of pain and hatred towards this man. Until she found the strength to do so, she was the one being held prisoner by her own feelings. The story goes on to show God’s love in action and the healing of many hearts and lives. To this day, if I am holding hostilites towards someone, I listen to this song to remind myself that our God wants us to forgive others the way He forgave us.
