Unforgiveness

163_1

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another,even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

—Ephesians 4:32

Someone has hurt you
Cut you through and through.
In your spirit you try to let it go,
But instead its brought you low.

You try to put it out of your mind,
But the words were not kind.
You become bitter and unforgiving;
Your days become miserable living.

The Holy Spirit moves you get it right,
But you refuse to repent day or night.
You don’t want to be the way you are,
But your nearness to God is far.

You begin to look within
At how bad you are, so full of sin.
You see how bad you have hurt the Lord;
How far you have wandered from His Word.

You see you are not better than they;
You too, have wandered far astray.
God loves you too much to leave you that way.
He wants to break your heart to pray.

Get it right before it’s too late;
Forgive your brother, refuse to wait.
Repent of unforgiveness before the night
So that you can be pleasing in His sight.

—Gene Griffin

In Mosul, ISIS militants marked with a spray-painted ن (the Arabic letter for “N”) all Christian property to be seized after the ultimatum. “N”, or ن , is the first letter of the Arabic word for Christian, “Nasrani” or Nazarene. #pray4thepersecuted
