Years ago I went through an experience so painful and so personal that I can’t elaborate on it here. It was gut-wrenching, beyond my ability to put into words, and beyond anything else that I’ve ever experienced. I was deeply wounded; and for a while at least, I was angry at those who had hurt me.
I found help in the most unexpected place. It came in the form of a song. It wasn’t a “Christian” song, but it was a Godsend.
The song was “Heart of the Matter” by former Eagles member Don Henley. It broke me. And it helped me get down to the heart of the matter. It was about forgiveness.
