Forgiveness??? But…Really, Lord?

Standard

It’s Impossible!!

The hardest thing…

The last thing on my mind…

To forgive those who don’t deserve it???

It’s the opposite of how I feel…

The pain they caused is just too real…

I can’t even say the word “Forgiveness…”

It flies in the face of all my pride…

It moves away the mad inside…

It’s always anger’s own worst enemy…

I really want to hold a grudge…

Lord, are You saying “Set it free?”

“Yes,  Forgiveness!”

Why should I love the unlovable???

Why should I try to reach the unreachable???

It’s impossible…

Forgiveness???

Why should I try to do the impossible???

Forgiveness???

It’s too hard!

“No, listen, my child…

It’ll clear the bitterness away…

It can even set a prisoner free…

There is no end to what its power can do…

So let it go and be amazed…

By what you see through eyes of grace…

The prisoner that it really frees is you!!”

Forgiveness!

Forgiveness!

Forgiveness!

Forgiveness!

Okay, Lord…

Show me how to love the unlovable..

Show me how to reach the unreachable…

Help me now to do the impossible…

Forgiveness!

I want to finally set it free…

So show me how to see what Your mercy sees…

Help me now to give what You gave to me!!

Forgiveness!

Forgiveness!

Forgiveness!

Forgiveness!

You can do it, too!  Do the impossible!  Free yourself by forgiving others!
