Help Me Forgive

Post  ChristianLady on Thu 29 Apr 2010, 5:17 pm

When rage and fury overwhelm my heart,
Itís time to look to Godís own Holy Word.
I search the Bible for His good advice;
My will to His commands must be deferred.

In Romans God reveals His love for me;
In all things God works only for my good;
He gives me blessings I canít understand;
Iíd be peaceful if Iíd do the things I should.

Jesus forgave so much; why then canít I?
I want to mold my life after His own.
I pray, I try, but my sinful nature wins;
Lord, help me, I canít do this thing alone.

In Colossians, I read about the peace of Christ;
Oh, how I long to feel it in my heart.
All I have to do is to forgive,
But Lord, it seems I donít know where to start.

I need to walk a mile in the otherís shoes;
Theyíre doing what they think they have to do.
I know some problems are blessings in disguise,
But Lord, sometimes I feel so doggone blue.

Ephesians says "forgive as the Lord forgave you;
Get rid of anger and every form of malice."
Iíd love to just let go and release it all,
But upon my heart is a wound thatís become a callus.

Iíll keep praying, trying, Lord, no matter what;
Iím determined to let go and relinquish blame;
Some day, Iíll say, and be truly sincere:
"I forgive it all in Jesusí precious name."

(Romans 8:28, Colossians 3:13, Ephesians 4:31)

Thank you for posting this! It reminds me
of the preaching of Milton Green. He has since
passed on, but his call was telling people about
the great falling away, CHRISTIANS falling away
through following the lusts of the flesh. Not bad
things either... success, material wealth... persuing
the worldly things rather than the things of the
spirit. Thanks for posting this! Blessings.
