Father, Father, Elder Brother you command me to forgive as I am forgiven.
How can I forgive those who admit not guilt and show not any mercy?
You did not create me to be driven with a goad and whip of derision, so how can they be forgiven?
I am Your child and I know you share my pain, but where is the love that should have been given to this child of yours in this world?
My sin of rejection, my rejection of your teachings when You called and I turned away the one who truly loved me.
My sin, my sin you have forgiven, but I came in abject repentance. What of they who refused you and me together?
My son, My daughter what have they to do with you and Me? I would heal you if you would be willing. Come out of the torment, do not be driven. Turn aside into My bosom and receive rest to your soul and the peace I wish to give to My beloved no matter how beaten.
There is a work to do, and it begins with you! Let not that be stolen what I have freely given. You are Mine! Born to be My delight and I, I your perfect example!
I give, I give, you the power to forgive without justification, for sin is sin still and must sometimes be riven from you. Each has a choice to be made daily! Will you love Me and live or let your past steal you from Me?
To forgive the unforgivable is My request, but how do you do it? Give it to Me and leave it behind for only I can completely forgive, but you must be willing.
Now I have my answer! I lay it at Your feet Who only knows True Forgiveness, for it entails a willingness to enter in to forgetfulness and as yet I cannot without Your forgiveness. As You are my provision in all things I will return to others what I have been given!
No longer to cry; Why, Why, but only, I have only, to trust you to deliver from all torment those who yield to your command to be willing and sometime, maybe in years to come, to never pick up the past that drives to despair but to be able to remember. I am responsible only for my response and will not longer be driven with and by that which as a human I cannot understand nor control.
I pledge to stand on your promises testified in the changes to and in my heart and life as I have yielded to Your spirit. That it is Your place in us that makes all repentant sinners free and worthy. I will not stand in my past and I will stand in the act of accepting Your love that makes me worthy!
And with this, Your love in my heart, I promise to be forgiving and to accept Your forgiveness of me!
You are worthy because you have been chosen.
You have been chosen because you are willing.
