Forgiveness Brings Freedom


Until Resurrection Day



I’ve forgiven

but I haven’t forgotten


Forgetting is another matter



Oh, if I could be a bit like God

I would simply bundle together

all those disappointments

all those unpleasant memories

and cast them into the

depths of the sea

and be done with them



They’d never get

another opportunity

to slip back

into my consciousness

to nudge

and needle me

with their boney elbows


My pastor says

God uses all things—

good, bad, joyful, sorrowful

every pain, every rejection, every loss

to bring about His purposes


He says there are only blessings

and blessings in disguise


so I don’t have to forget—

I just have to let go

and put my trust in Him
