Some reflections of forgiveness.

Stomach in knots

Heart beating anxiously

Unable to love

Filled with hate

Saddness and self

esteem low and we

can't seem to focus on

tasks at hand

Why? Someone has

hurt us at some point

Deep hurt and anger consumes

Quality of life deteriates

Spiraling in a tornado

of despair and hate

Faster and faster

life passes us by as we

nuture our feeling and thoughts

This person and situation

takes over our lives

Soul whispers



We don't listen

How can we forgive?

They deliberately hurt us

Jesus gently taps us on the shoulder

Oh my precious child

I know you are deeply hurt

I know you have been betrayed

I see your tears and know your pain

But how long are you going

to live with this hate?

They hurt you and now you

are hurting yourself

Get the help you need

Work through your pain

I will be with you

Yes, what they did was hurtful

but you don't know the whole story

I ask you to live a life free of

this hate that binds

Darkness and path

leading to destruction

Follow me

I will show you the way

I will show you a life of

light,joy,faith, and love

Your heart will beat to

a song of compassion and

your soul will rejoice

Freedom is near!
