Let It Go

To love one another,

We must do it right.

We must forgive our bother,

To renew our own sight.

We cannot walk in love,

If we hold a grudge in our heart.

We have to forgive over and over,

To give us a new start.

 

Others may have hurt us,

And not been loving or kind.

We still need to forgive them,

To ease our troubled mind.

We all hurt our Father,

But He knows how to let it go.

He lives in perfect love,

And won’t let hatred grow.

 

Hatred makes you weak.

It will take away your life.

It will leave you in trouble.

Walking in turmoil and strife.

Turmoil is a state of confusion.

It comes from Satan below.

His goal is for you to lose,

Your life and your soul.

 

Jesus showed us how to love.

He taught us how to forgive.

We cannot hate our brother,

And yet claim to live.

To live a life of joy,

And be covered by God’s love,

We must learn how to forgive,

To gain eternity up above.

Matthew 6:14-15

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive  trespasses.

 

To live a life of love and peace, we cannot hold onto a grudge. We must learn to forgive and let it go. Scripture says that God not only forgives but forgets what we did to offend Him. That is perfect love. We are not perfect and may not be able to forget what someone did to offend us, but we need to strive to love more than to hate. God expects us to love each other. He does not say to just like them or to not wish them harm. We have to go beyond that and learn to forgive them for hurting us. God does not ask us to allow our child to be crucified to take away that sin. God did that to bury our sins in a grave. He also gave us His Holy Spirit to help us replace anger with joy and hate with love. The Spirit of love lives in us and can help us do all things. He will help us to let it go.
