Live To Forgive



Live to forgive,
Unwarranted transgressions.
Committed against you.
Even though,
The temptation is opposite...
In your thoughts kept to sit.

Permit and allow God,
To handle His business.
Trust to know,
That God will choose and pick...
The right judgement to do it.
Leaving you to stay and pray away,
Bitterness to feel a wound felt to fade.
To prove God rules!

Live to forgive.
Although this may seem easier,
To hear it said than do.
Just know that you,
Don't have to do a thing...
To react to what others may bring.
With a doing of their evil misdeeds.
Live to forgive and allow God to prove,
The wrongs others do to you...
They and not you will pay the consequences!

Live to forgive.
And remain to stay moving forward.
