God Forgives Us of Our Wrongs!

God Forgives Us Of Our Wrongs!


God forgives us of our wrongs!

And he wants us all, to try and get along!


He gave us his word and instructions…

But, too often, we don’t seem to “function!”


Something done, or something said…

And it’s like some people, wish you were “dead.”


Even in Christ’ body, there’s dysfunction from the start.

Ending up in another wounded and bleeding heart!


What if Christ treated us, like how we treat each other?

What if he turned his back, like we do our brother?


No matter the good...  A list of wrongs is often kept.

What’s been done…  Someone can’t seem to forget???


Do you find yourself, a person

 who’s easily offended?

By someone you don’t like,

 or one you’ve befriended?


May I suggest a “heavy dose” of 1 Cor. Thirteen?

The love of God can take care of ANYTHING!


If it didn’t, then Christ’ death is meaningless and lost.

He bore all of our sins that day on the cross!


If we can’t forgive your brother over something he’s done…

We need to ask forgiveness of Christ…  God’s son!


There’s no excuses, in God’s

kingdom that’s eternal!

Will your name be written

 in heaven’s journal???

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!
