Have You “Cut” Someone Out Of Your Life?


Many people are walking

down a dangerous path.

By “letting the sun set

on their wrath.”


They say; “I’m not angry.”

 “I just don’t talk to him anymore.”

“I don’t have anything to do with him

 or let him in my door.”


Is this what it means, when Christ

 says we must forgive?

To completely “cut someone off”

out of the lives we live?


I’m confused here… 

Can you tell me the difference?

It’s unforgiveness.  No matter how you

 try to change the appearance.


Why not explain to God, why you

decided to “cut someone out.”

Perhaps read his word on what being

 his example is all about.


This choice you made… 

It’s been made by many others before.

When it comes to forgiveness. 

We all need so much more!


The “ball is in your court now.” 

What are you going to do?

Remember…  In spite of your faults. 

Christ says; “I love you!”


May God stir your spirit to be

humble and broken…

And bless those who’ve hurt you

 in what is done and spoken!

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!
