PostSubject: Poem--Forgive, for they do not know   Sun May 29, 2016 8:56 am

Sobbing on the floor, only You could open this door
Love that is deep, compassion so strong
Felt You go into the very core of my being
As if You reached into my soul. Deep within me.
A place where I was afraid to enter. Where an ocean of the strongest emotions flood.
Water and waves of love , deep, powerful
Afraid to step in for I might drown.
Part of me fears to feel this, never been here before
You are allowing me to feel as I never felt before.
Kneeling on the floor, surrendered to You, openly.

He brought me to a past time in life
Where I had become distant from Him. When I was crushed, broken by the weight of my problems
Hopeless, desperate
Turning to anger after learning to numb the pain
Making mistakes, sinning worse than ever before
He saved me,grabbing me out of the abyss of recklessness, bitterness.
His hand pulled me out of the tunnel leading me to desolation and hell.
As I wept upon the floor, praising and repenting He told me to have love and patience
For my enemies. Pray even harder for them.
He showed me even I whom always loved Him went through very dark hours
Yet He was always with me, by my side.
For when Jesus was on the cross surrounded by enemies He said
" Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do"
After my experience I believe it to be true
They know not what they do, because I didn't either

By commenting on your poem, it places it at the top of the list, a place of humble honor for an invited guest granted by a host but by no means to be assumed nor taken lightly:).

Luke 14:18
