Help Me to Remember to Forgive
This poem is written from the perspective of a Christian,
who knows that Jesus Christ is her Savior!
When someone hurts my feelings
And sometimes makes me cry,
I tell myself "Just forgive."
And then I really try!
But hurts can sometimes linger.
No matter what we say.
Another day still passes.
And I neglect to pray!
My hurt feelings begin to swell.
I can tell my heart gets colder, too.
But still I refuse to kneel and pray.
I'd feel so much better if I talked to You!
Dear Lord, I so much need You then!
And I love You so very much.
Come and comfort me with love,
And let me feel Your tender touch!
Your tenderness and love soothes my soul.
As I fall to my knees in prayer.
It washes my heart and makes me feel,
Like Spring, when a rainstorm clears the air!
There's so little time left, Lord.
Don't let me waste it feeling blue.
Help me to remember to forgive,
For I want to be more like You!
Lord, it's wonderful to know,
One touch from You can stop my pain.
Your love can make me feel,
That I am fresh and clean again!
