Willing to Receive

Be willing to receive,

God’s forgiveness and love.

Let go of the past,

And look to God above.


Regret will wear you down,

Because you hold onto the past.

You refuse to receive His forgiveness,

And hold onto His love that will last.


Looking back with regret,

Stops you from looking ahead.

You cannot look to a future,

With a heart full of dread.


Pray for your enemies,

To let yourself heal.

If you just cover your wounds,

It is a temporary seal.


If you let the wound heal,

It cannot open again.

You have trusted His Word,

As a true and faithful Friend.


To float in the sea of forgiveness.

Is better than to drown in a sea of despair.

Don’t blame others for the storms,

But rest in the comfort of Jesus care.


Your pain has been from Satan.

Overcome evil with good.

Think of what Jesus would do,

And walk the way you should.


Be patient for tomorrow.

Pray for blessings today.

Then rest in His promises,

Waiting for good to come your way.
