The Land of The Unforgiven
by Deborah Ann Belka  
6/23/2013 / Poetry

Lord, tonight I fell out of sorts,
lonely and a little sad too
and I am longing for the day
that I'll be spending with You.

The highs and the lows,
of this everyday living . . .
makes me weary of dwelling
in the land of the unforgiving.

So many just can't let go,
nor forget the pain of their past
in their minds they relive the hurt
of the stones, others have cast.

They dwell on the negative,
in their misery they mope
they will not listen when I say
You ~ are their only hope.

They need grace and mercy,
they need to learn to forgive
so that they can have peace
and in You, victoriously live.

But, they'd rather be crippled,
by their hurt and their pain
then to come to You . . .
for any spiritual gain.

Lord, tonight I am so weary,
I want peace that will last
help me to help them . . .
to forgive, others for their past!


Colossians 3:12-13
King James Version

"Put on therefore, as the elect of God,
holy and beloved, bowels of mercies,
kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness,
longsuffering; Forbearing one another,
and forgiving one another, if any man
have a quarrel against any: even as
Christ forgave you, so also do ye."
