Re~Written


Have you every Re-watched a movie that you didn't like?

Hmm...

Have you ever

Re-Read

a chapter in your story

that you didn't like?

Hmm....

When you just keep

Re-Winding

back to that

time or

place or

person

when

something you did or

something that someone else did

caused pain,

but it just

causes more pain

every time you

Re-Read

that chapter in your story.

It may be in

Chapter 1 or in Chapter 22

or in the

Chapter

that is currently being written,

but you are just stuck

on that page

Re-Reading

it

just one more time

in hope

that it will go away

or it

just won't hurt anymore.

Re-Cycling

the same thing over and over again

when really what is being

Re-Cycled

is

"anger and disappointment at being treated unfairly; resentment."

The Chapter entitled

Bitterness

because

Re-Reading

the chapter

doesn't have the power to

erase the words on the page~

Re-Writing

into what you wished it to be...

But

Re-reading

doesn't have to hurt anymore

when you

Put You in His Story

His Story

of

Forgiveness~

because He said it best

"Forgive them, Father! They don't know what they are doing." Luke 23:24

But

"Forgiveness is not granted because a person deserves to be forgiven. No one deserves to be forgiven. Forgiveness is a deliberate act of love, mercy, and grace.

Forgiveness is a decision to not hold something against another person,

despite what he or she has done to you." (https://www.gotquestions.org/what-is-forgiveness.html)

But

Forgiveness~ ("Forgiveness", by Matthew West)

It's the hardest thing to give away

And the last thing on your mind today

It always goes to those that don't deserve

Forgiveness

It's the opposite of how you feel

When the pain they caused is just to real

It takes everything you have just to say the word...

Forgiveness

It flies in the face of all your pride

It moves away the mad inside

It's always anger's own worst enemy

Even when the jury and the judge

Say you gotta right to hold a grudge

It's the whisper in your ear saying 'Set It Free'

Forgiveness~

Show _____________ (PUT your name)

how to love the unlovable

Show _____________ (PUT your name)

how to reach the unreachable

Help _____________ (PUT your name)

now to do the impossible

Forgiveness~

Because...

It'll clear the bitterness away

It can even set a prisoner free

There is no end to what it's power can do

So, let it go and be amazed

By what you see through eyes of grace

The prisoner that it really frees is you,

_______________ (PUT your name).

Just ask and you will receive...

I, _______________, (PUT your name)

want to finally set it free

So show ______________ (PUT your name)

how to see what Your mercy sees

Help ______________ (PUT your name)

now to give what You gave to _____________(PUT your name)~

Forgiveness!

So

Put Him in My Story

Put Him in Your Story

so

He can

RE-Write

your

Chapter of

Bitterness

to

Forgiveness

As

He erases the deep pain of the hurt

by filling the wounds from the hurt

because

He heals the brokenhearted

He wipes away the tears

with

His

Forgiveness~

Re-Writing

over every

wrong

Because

He is our

Re-Deemer.

*When you have a moment, watch the story behind the song Forgiveness

and listen to the song...

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans5:8
