Forgiveness

Forgiveness

With bitterness and resentment I poisoned my soul leaving a painful gaping hole and unable to fill it with the things of life it caused confusion turmoil and strife.

 Harbouring revenge which I did bear and in spite the details I gladly would share spreading the vermin of gossip and sin hoping to gain approval and win.

Then the perpetrators with their evil intent would know where they stand and I would have the upper hand, yet in this victory I knew no peace only the bitterness that could not be resolved eating away at my very soul.

In sickness and pain did my body rebel showing my victory to be an empty shell, tormenting daily were the resentful memories I harboured and which wouldn’t relent reminding me continually of the evil event.

 Then in sorrow and grief I cried asking Jesus to be by my side knowing His mercy is new every day giving forgiveness and peace within breaking the bondage of sin.

Then by His power He set me free giving me Love for my enemies, not holding on to the list of wrongs but knowing the joy of letting them be a long forgotten memory, forgiving those who had caused me pain and blessing them in Jesus name.

 This I could not do in my strength alone for the seeds of bitterness had been sown, only in trusting in Christ’s strength and power was I set free to live again in victory.

      Yes Angie, Anne’s gift expresses her heart and God’s for us, she chooses to forgive and God helps her, I see my limitations but know we don’t walk alone, a truth hard to forget with the lives we both have had.

      Hi Shenine, so good to see you and very True what you shared, we choose to forgive always and The Holy Spirit empowers us so we can forgive but just like God’s forgiveness unless others repent they can’t receive our forgiveness and it’s the same with us.

      Hi Love, it amazes me that regardless of how many times I share my poetry, with you, always you seek to encourage and uplift me, thank you for your kind words.

      Yes the blanket is a good example in how heavy resentment and bitterness is, it weighs us down, even smothering us with fear because it blocks out Jesus’ Light.

    We have no way to victory or to win any battle without His help. Life throw us into many turmoil and send our life into total confusion and chaos. However the wisdom of this world all fall apart when we trust the Lord and He for sure pull us out.
