Can You Forgive Me?

Can You forgive Me?

 

 

Is there something about me that you annoys you?

Even though I have tried to befriend you?

 

You’ve pointed out my faults to people you know…

The unforgiveness is “eating at your soul!”

 

Instead of being the kind of person

 God wants you to be….

You keep bringing up things about me!

 

Have you ever just once taking time to pray?

And think about what you’re going to say?

 

Think about the damage you’ve already done!

And pour out your heart to God’s precious son.

 

May Jesus help you to love me the way he wants you to!

This is what you’re supposed to do!

 

May you treat me with the love that Jesus’ has brought!

May his words of encouragement be what’s taught!

 

We need to lift up one another and each burden!

A life of compassion and love must be certain!

 

This is the only way to obtain victory that’s needed!

Only then will our lives be completed!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
