Forgiveness


This week this song has come on the radio a few times... just when I needed to hear it.
One was when my husband and I were having a fight disagreement and I just did not want to give in and get over it. It was crazy how, while I was out driving around, this song came on. I believe God uses people to speak to us and that day he used this song to reach me. Its such a powerfully true message. The act of forgiveness is for my benefit, it heals me, it brings me back to God. Just like the words in this song-  "Oh Father, give me grace to forgive them, Cause I feel like the one losin'". I  hurt myself most when I hold on to anger and choose to not forgive someone.  And most importantly, the anger and unforgiveness keeps me from God and His work in me.

I wanted to share it with you because it was what I needed to hear and maybe its just what you needed to hear too.



Losing by Tenth Avenue North

I can't believe what she said
I can't believe what he did
Oh, don't they know it's wrong
Don't they know it's wrong
Well maybe there's something I missed
But how could they treat me like this
It's wearing out my heart
The way they disregard

This is love or this is hate.
We all have a choice to make

Oh, Father won't You forgive them
They don't know what they've been doin' (oh no)
Oh Father, give me grace to forgive them
Cause I feel like the one losin'

Well it's only the dead that can live
But still I wrestle with this
To lose the pain that's mine
Seventy times seven times
Cause Lord it doesn't feel right
For me to turn a blind eye
Though I guess it's not that much
When I think of what You've done.

This is love or this is hate.
We gotta a choice to make

Oh Father won't You forgive them
They don't know what they've been doin' (oh no)
Oh Father, give me grace to forgive them
Cause I feel like the one losin'

Why do we think that our hate's gonna break a hard heart
We're rippin' arms over wars that don't need to be fought
Cause pride wont let us lay our weapons on the ground
We build our bridges up but it's just to burn them down
We think our pain is own apologies and get them to stop
Well truth be told it doesn't matter if they're sorry or not
Cause freedom comes when we surrender to the sound
Of Your mercy and Your grace, Father, send Your angels down

Oh Father won't you forgive them
They don't know what they've been doin'
Oh Father, give me grace to forgive them
Cause I feel like the one losin'
I feel like I've been losing

Oh Father, give me grace to forgive them
Cause I feel like the one losin'

God Bless
Have a wonderful week my friend
xoxo,
