You’ve hurt me…
In words and deeds
But I forgive you.
You’ve spread gossip about me,
Then give a smile that’s not real…
God says I must forgive you.
I see resentment in your eyes.
I hear pride in your voice.
I want to turn a blind eye;
Pretend it doesn’t hurt,
But the pain is real.
You say you love me in a song,
Then you turn and shake my hand.
Yet you watch me fall,
Without lending a helping hand.
I cried, Help!
But you ignored my cry.
I asked for help,
But you have other things
to which you need to attend.
Still, I forgive you.
I forgive you
Because I know I’m not perfect.
I forgive you
Because when I mess-up,
I want you to forgive me too.
And I want my heavenly Father
To forgive me of all the wrong I do.
You’ve hurt me but I forgive you.
If I’ve hurt you, I pray you’ll forgive me too.
May God bless you
As you journey through.

This is one of the poems I wrote during my time of grieving. It was how God helped me to release the toxin within. The same struggles I faced in my natural family was also faced in my spiritual family so this poem helped me to deal with the issue at hand; knowing that we are all sinners saved by grace or waiting to experience salvation. Therefore we will make mistakes along the way. The beauty is that mistakes are forgivable. God does not want us to sit and sink in sin, He wants us to come to Him with a repentant heart, seeking His forgivness. We also need to forgive each other the wrong done to us and say sorry to those we hurt. Forgiveness is available to all. Be blessed!
