Forgiveness Testimony

Dona Hatherley testifies to 'forgiving everyone and everything or remain unforgiven herself.'
For 28 years I suffered with fibromyalgia. In November of 2006 I was delivered and set free to heal.
A few years ago the Lord came into my room and sat on my bedside for 3 hours. I was in the midst of a horrendous burning pain in my body and bones. I was unable to move. I pleaded with the Lord to touch me and heal me. He did neither.

About the time that the awareness of His presence left me the pain lessened. I also learned of some products that greatly helped me and kept me comfortable but not free of the disease.
When I went for prayer in November of 2006, the healing evangelist Billy Smith, asked me if I knew what was causing the pain . I knew and answered him that unforgiveness and bitterness were known to cause it. He agreed and acknowledged that I had tried to forgive but this forgiveness had to be public.

He led me in a prayer and declaration to forgive and pardon everyone that had ever hurt me. Then he held my feet and commanded the healing. This was in Barrie, On..
The scripture that this is based on is the parable of the large and small debts with the Master and the servants. Also the Lord's Prayer 'forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors'.

Recently I was given the opportunity again to forgive publicly as I had been involved in an accident in Feb.2007. This involved 3 insurance companies because of a whiplash that I had received.
By a word of knowledge a visiting man of God asked if there was anyone there with a issue concerning a pickup truck. Murv and I went forward and I had to publicly speak forgiveness to these 3 insurance companies and ask the Lord to pardon me again.

If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Do you ever struggle with unforgiveness issues? Do you think the verse in the Bible that says Confess your faults one to another that you may be healed is the public notice that we forgive we heal?

After many years of unforgiveness I have to really concentrate to forgive each moment, all the time, every trespass. Some call this being rapture ready !
