Forgiveness and healing

Lord God, at last,
I think I understand –

Forgiving those who hurt me
Heals my body,
Mind,
And heart,

But, far beyond these three,
It heals my soul.

**********************************

If you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins (Matthew 6:12,14-15; NIV).

Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us (Luke 11:4; NLT).

Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing (Luke 23:34; NLT).

Don’t sin by letting anger control you. Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry (Ephesians 4:26; NLT).

Lord, be merciful to me; heal my soul; for I have sinned against You (Psalm 41:4; NKJV).

He shall preserve thy soul (Psalm 121:7; KJV).

  1. Ooo, I’m so chuffed you want to use my words … yes, of course! :D You know, Ruth, I get so much pleasure and value from reading other peoples’ poetry that I’ve never really thought about it. When I read this one of yours, it made me feel happy and those words I replied with sort of just popped into my head … as if they belonged to the poem. I hope that doesn’t make it sound like yours was incomplete! XXX
