Forgiving Is Living

Forgiveness means letting go,
forgetting grudges that you hold.
Turning over all your cares...
releasing them through heartfelt prayer.

Praying for a softened heart,
longing for a brand new start.
Reaching out in Christ-like love,
will bring you healing from above.

Bitterness consumes a heart
and tears relationships apart.
Love can make it right again...
but only God can make amends.

Ask yourself, when Jesus comes,
will you be praised for what you've done?
Or will He weep at how you've lived...
because your heart would not forgive.

“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.”
