You say that I must have forgiveness
for this awful man.
Jesus this man murdered in cold blood, a
family member that I love.
I don't think I can do this, it will take
all of your help from above.
This man was full of hate, and now I
have learned to hate too.
My anger and hate are like a poison, and
its tearing my life in two.
I've carried this hate for so long, please
show me what to do.
Jesus spoke to my heart, Forgiveness is not
only for him, it is also a gift for you.
I finally saw my anger and hate, was not
affecting him, he didn't even know.
In order to pick up the pieces of my life, I
had to forgive and let go.
So I placed my hate, at the foot of the cross
and turned and walked away.
My load was so much lighter, I smiled and
thanked Jesus for showing me the way.
Sadly there are days, where I pick
hate up all over again.
I don't like the way it feels, for hate
is heavy and its also a sin.
I ask Jesus to forgive me, and then
I give it back to Him.
