Forgive And Forget

        Trials of life may cause us to fret,
        Burdens often are heavy for us to bear;
        We may be offended by someone and yet,
        We need to place it all into God's care.

        It is difficult, sometimes, to forgive,
        It's even more trouble-some to forget;
        We must press on...forgive...and live,
        God is not finished with us yet.

        Someone may have troubled you this day,
        Leaving you disgusted and discouraged too;
        Pause a moment and take time to pray,
        Let God have His loving way within you.

        It may be difficult for you to let-go,
        Pause and think of what Jesus would do;
        He is our Saviour and Best Friend to know,
        He wants to guide you all of life through.

        We must not let anger or bitterness take root,
        Jesus did not let these things enter into Him;
        We will be known to others by our fruit,
        Take a moment to forgive and begin again.

        Jesus set the example while on the Cross,
        "Father, forgive them...they know not what they do"
        This is the prayer He prayed and all because...
        We must learn to forgive and then forget, too.
