Sometimes we wonder why we can't be forgiven by God for something that hurts our hearts. I found out why.


There was something in my soul that was causing so much pain.
It was something that I’ve done, no one else to blame.
I’ve never told a single soul, for it hurt my very being.
I did it without thought; I did it blind not seeing.
I’ve asked God many times to forgive and heal my heart.
It’s one thing he won’t do, until my own forgiveness starts.
It happened many years ago and I thought it would go away.
But it always stayed with me from then to this very day.
How can I forgive myself when to me it was a sin?
How can I go on and grow without letting someone in?
It’s something I still can’t reveal for it tears my soul apart.
It’s something that will destroy me, destroy my very heart.
I asked for strength and the courage to be able to release,
All the guilt inside of me, so I can have some peace.
Then one night in prayer, the answer came so clear.
For it told me to forgive myself and keep my savior near.
I realized God couldn’t get through all this guilt and pain.
Until I turned it over to HIM, and released all self blame
Now, he freely healed me, for my slate was finally washed cleaned.
At last I have forgiveness and I have been redeemed.

Bonnie May

I've often found that forgiving someone else seems much easier than forgiving ourselves for our own shortcomings. I've always believed this is due to the grief we feel, for having been less than we should have been, leaving us unable to come to terms with it and move on. That said, however, we're all human and as humans, we are entitled to make mistakes.

I agree with Georg, as well. If the Lord can't forgive us (which He will), it is hard for sinners like us to find it in our hearts to do so.

Powerful poem, Bonnie. Thanks.
Reviewed by Georg Mateos
Forgivenes, some times, one can't give having been amputated by the sheer enormity of the offense.
Sorry, but if even the Lord can't forgive some thing, so, what anyone can expect from sinners like us?
