Forgiving Ourselves

From Galatians 5:1:  “For freedom Christ has set us free.  Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.”

Burdened by life’s BIG problem

All of man living in sin

Selfishness fueling mistakes

Where should we turn to begin?


Come forward to accept Him

Forgiveness granted from God

Washing away timeless guilt

Can’t forgive self, living flawed


Struggle with self-forgiveness

Guilt’s shadow never pulls back

God’s grace-filled pardon waiting

Feeling unloved, sin attacks


Filling ourselves with sadness

Self-imposed standards now crash

Rely on works over faith

Sin making us feel like trash


Kneeling at Calvary’s cross

Jesus’ blood setting us free

No longer chained to darkness

Forgiving ourselves, guilt flees

From Psalm 51:10-12:  “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.  Do not cast me away from your presence, and do not take your holy spirit from me.  Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and sustain in me a willing spirit.”
