I said all was forgiven;
I truly thought it so.
That past of hopeless living,
Not knowing friend from foe.
"Not true," my dreams revealed.
Different words, but all the same;
Opening wounds I thought were healed;
Quarreling, fighting, and calling names.
I'd awake full of frustration
And anger I couldn't explain;
The day was spent in depression;
My heart was bound in chains.
Such a grip it held on me!
That lifetime in the past.
Why couldn't I just let it be
And live in peace at last?
I knew forgiveness had to be given;
My Father's Word said so.
Broken, I prayed, "Dear Father in heaven,
Please help me let it go."
I dropped the load and gave God control;
What inner relief abounded!
His Spirit brought peace to my mind and my soul;
By depression I'm no longer hounded.
I dreamed about the past last night.
This time there was no anger.
Healing has come, the future seems bright;
My heart is chained no longer.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
