Forgive My Debts As I Forgive Others

Forgive My Debts As I Forgive Others

We ask God's forgiveness as we are forgiving .

Are you sure that's what you want Him to do?

Now search your mind and search your heart,

Is there any debt that is not forgiven by you?


Do you dare to really travel back in your mind ,

To debts some friends have long owed to you ?

It may not be money, maybe unjustly perhaps

Have you forgiven each hurt you went through?


Can you ask Him to forgive as you also forgive?

You can still name the person,Remember the pain.

Speak in your heart,"Now I forgive you each one,"

Then cast them from you ,too long they have lain.


If we can't forgive then how can we expect Jesus

To forgive all of our sins be they great or small.

The Lord did not forgive just some of our sins.

We prayed for forgiveness,He canceled them all.


Would we really want Him to forgive as we forgive?

Do we think of what we are asking and what we say?

Make sure there is no unforgiven sin in your heart.

Be sure all is forgiven when we go to God and pray!

We ask God to forgive us all of our sins but

He knows what feelings are hidden deep inside

that no one can see , but God can ,His is the

all seeing eye that misses nothing . He sees

all and he hears all. He knows what is deep

inside your heart .maybe things that have

been buried there so deep that you have

almost forgotten them ,they did not die.

If you want to be forgiven by Jesus you

will have to did rid of all of that spirit of

unforgiveness, You won't get to Heaven

carrying all of that with you .

Greetings Clara. Mercy over sacrifice. It is the natural order of life to receive forgiveness after forgiving those that hurt you. We reap what we have sowed.

I am convinced not forgiving leads to all kinds of diseases. There is a reason why we are to told to forgive. Voting you up.

Hello Rasta1, glad to hear from you .I guess sometimes we just think that forgiveness is just one sided but it has to work both ways to be successful.You are right ,we do reap what we sow and we may not always be immediately.thanks for your comment, Clara

I liked this poem because it spoke of forgiveness and it opposite.

Life is definitely much better without having to bear such a burden of not forgiving others for what they have indeed done to us, thanks for sharing this hub.

That is an important point to bear in mind: to pray the Lord's Prayer means that we're asking God to forgive us AS WE FORGIVE OTHERS- Whoa! have we really forgiven others? Thank you for the reminder.

That is the point, if we don't forgive others how can we expect to be forgiven . Sometimes we have to go back awhile to find something. I sold Avon years ago and I was cheated several different times but I didn't know what to do about it except I didn't forget . One day God gave me this and I have forgiven them , over the years if something comes up I just have to forgive that person . Thanks for the comment.

Hello cloud explorer, yes ,it is much easier to forgive someone than to be carrying all of that luggage that we don't need.actually , we are the ones who are getting hurt if we keep bringing something up that the other party has probably forgotten long ago.Thanks for the comment, Clara

Great poem,i love it.Forgiveness is actually good thing as it will free your heart from anger.But to forgive someone who has done something or caused you so bad is an impossible thing.I would love to forgive but i never forget what they did to me so i better not forgive and just pray to God to forgive me for not forgiving others.

Hello Bituino. hope that you don't min d my shortening your greeting . I am glad that you liked the poem and yes. I know it is not always easy to forgive people sometimes but I have always been fortunate .I have never "been able to bear a grudge ,"for very long, That was an old saying but you look so young maybe you never heard it before. I am sure The Lord will help you when you need it ,Remember He answers prayers, love,Clara
