Trust me, I've been there, I've looked, I've searched and I know now, that there are no answers to be found in the bottom of a bottle or on the edge of a blade! Fighting Hard, Recovering, Rebuilding, REBORN. Moving on from addiction to a new life.
Each forgiven For a different sin Though not worthy And no sentence given Our sin removed And our sin forgotten By a God who loves Yet still we withhold Our own forgiveness For all who sin Against our own soul Yet how can we choose To not forgive As we are the forgiven And we shouldn’t forget We pray And we praise Yet we withhold a great gift That of forgiveness Yet we still give thanks For the mercy and grace we receive This is now our sin Yet still He forgives And still He loves
Is patience a gift? Or something we learn The gift to forgive Not hardening our hearts For we’re all forgiven Of our deepest sin Within patient grace From the maker of all Yet we’re slow to forgive Loathed to forget So how do we learn? That which we receive That ever patient grace
All have fallen short And all will fall short Of the desires of our Lord In our own we let Him down Yet His grace is bigger than the oceans Stretching far beyond His universe For forever we are forgiven Our sins recorded no more Yet to others we hold grievance We forget what it is to forgive Even though we are the forgiven We hold it against our fellow man So how can we show God’s love The one that we have received When we won’t forgive as He forgives Then what love can we have for fellow man So let go of that grievance Forgive and show the love As the mighty Father has forgiven you Who shows only love for His beloved child
