It was a cold night in February 2007 when the car holding Chris Williams and his family was hit by a 17-year-old drunk driver.
Immediately, Chris checked on his children in the back seat and quickly realized his 11-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter had died. Then as he watched, his pregnant wife sitting next to him exhaled for the last time. Meanwhile, Williams was in so much pain he could barely move his arm to turn off his car’s engine.
However, before he had even been rescued from his car, Williams told the Deseret News he had this thought: “Whoever has done this to us, I forgive them. I don’t care what the circumstances were; I forgive them.”
He proved as good as his word, going on to publicly forgive his family’s killer and developing a relationship with him and his family.
Today, Williams is a motivational speaker, sharing his incredible story of healing and forgiveness and inspiring others to extend mercy and forgiveness as well. When a drunk driver took his wife, his son, his daughter and his unborn child, he decided to do the hardest thing of all, forgive.
Could you let go? Would you?
Forgive makes your burdens lighter n makes way for God’s divine blessing to come to you…..let us not harbour things in our heart but forgive and let go.
With many peaceful blessings
