When rage and fury overwhelm my heart,
It’s high time I looked to God’s own Holy Word.
I search the Bible for His good advice;
My will to His commands must be deferred.
God reveals His love for me In His Word;
In all things God works only for my good;
He gives me blessings I still struggle to understand;
I’d be peaceful if I’d do the things I should.
Jesus forgave so much; why then can’t I?
I want to mold my life after His own.
I pray, I try, but my sinful nature wins;
Lord, help me, I can’t do this thing alone.
I read about the peace of Christ;
Oh, how I long to feel it in my heart.
All I have to do is to forgive,
But Lord, it seems I don’t know where to start.
I need to walk a mile in the others shoes;
They’re doing what they think they have to do.
I know some problems are blessings in disguise,
But Lord, sometimes I feel so doggone blue.
Your word says “forgive as the Lord forgave you;
Get rid of anger and every form of malice.”
I’d love to just let go and release it all,
But upon my heart is a wound that’s become a callus.
I’ll keep praying, trying, Lord, no matter what;
I’m determined to let go and relinquish blame;
Someday, I’ll say, and be truly sincere:
“I forgive it all in Jesus’ precious name.”
Romans 8:28 [NKJV]
And we know that all things work together for good, to those who love God, to those who are called according to His Purpose.
Colossians 3:13 [NKJV]
Bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you must also do.
Ephesians 4:31 [NKJV]
Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamour, and evil speaking be put away you, with all malice.
AAT- To God the glory be.
