It's About Forgiveness


People will hurt

Their hearts will burn away

All the hope and bring only pain


People will say

They’re right – even when they know

Their souls need to change,

Listen to His words, His grace

The light that reflects His way


People will smile

When, in their hearts…

They’re telling you dark lies

Secreting slanders, deception

That would never be allowed…

If they followed His directions


People will doubt

The love in your heart,

The reasons you smile,

The dreams in your soul,

The light that reflects

All the compassion you know…

Is the promise of your love


People will hurt you,

Hand you so much pain…

You feel like it can’t be absolved.

Yet, you forgive… knowing…

He is the forgiver of all

He even excused your own sin

With understanding that begins with…

The cross where He died for them,

The ones who hurt you again and again…

The ones you’ll forgive because you believe…

In a Savior who forgave you of every wrong

A Redeemer who made you God’s child,

The child who knows forgiveness decides…

To give grace when the pain is so alive inside

That nothing on earth feels quite right.

Forgiveness, my friend… is the gift that gives

Again and again… love that never ends!

Matthew 18:21-22

King James Version

21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
