I Did Something That You Won't Let
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

I Did Something That You Wonít Let Me Forget!

I did something recently, that I regret.

What it was.† You wonít let me forget!

I said; ďIím sorry.Ē And tried to explain it!

†But what Iíve done, you continue to name it.

You called me your friend, and offered assistance...

But any attempts to talk,

†you offer resistance.

I heard you before.† You quoted Bible verses.

Now you speak complaints and curses!

It seems like whatever I do or what I say.

You just wish, ďI would go away!Ē

Where is Godís love, you once gave me?

Are you the kind of person,

God wants you to be?

Iím sorry of what I said and what I did.

I hope you find the power to forgive!

Iíve done my part.† And thatís all I can do.

Now is your turn!† The rest is up to YOU!

You can love me, or simply push me aside!

You can humble yourself, or be filled with pride!

The choices and decisions you make...

Please do it now!† Before itís too late!

I pray that Godís love, will touch your soul!

Walk in his forgiveness!

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!
