Forgiveness Heals


We’ll seek forgiveness love and grace

We’ll seek through Christ to live

Yet fail to see His wondrous face

Because we won’t forgive


Through selfish ways, through foolish pride

Frivolity of soul

Bitterness hinders love inside

To make one’s spirit whole


Resentment has no place above

Hatred’s ordained to die

Forgiveness; life’s true fruit of love

Will pave The Way on high


Blessing souls, righting our wrongs

Mending a broken heart

Forgiveness sings such wondrous songs

True healing to impart


For foolish walls to crumble down

Let wisdom now explain

Forgiveness needs to wear a crown

For love to truly reign


Be merciful to friend and foe

Forgive the evil done

Believe the seed today we sow

Will grow till victory’s won


Be wise to Heaven’s true advice

Heed all Christ has to say

In Matthew six He warns us twice

To walk forgiveness’ way


Forget the hurtful things you’ve heard

Let malice speak in vain

Believe in God, His faithful Word

Let love now heal the pain.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
