Confessing

 

Do not try
to cover your sins
but come and
bring them to Me

turning away
from whatever it is
finding forgiveness
and mercy.

A laid down life confesses sin.

“He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.” Proverbs 28:13 NKJV

I know
all about you
there’s no need
to hide

for I’m full of mercy
and forgiveness
to those who
are Mine.

A laid down life is crowned with loving kindness and tender mercies.

“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:2-4,11-12 NKJV

I am your God
merciful
ready to forgive
and hear

your prayers
and supplications
answering
“I’m near.”

A laid down life’s soul is rejoiced by God.

“You are my God. Rejoice the soul of your servant. For You, Lord, are good and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You. In the day of my trouble, I will call upon You, for You will answer me. There is none like You, O Lord, nor are there any works like Your works. For You are great and do wondrous things; You alone are God. “. Psalm 86:2,4,5,7,8,10 NKJV

Taking Heed

“Take heed to yourselves.  If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; if he repents, forgive him.
And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, ‘I repent’, you shall forgive him.”  Luke 17:3-4 NKJV  

Personally, Jesus is more concerned with my response than another’s sin.

Thank You, Lord, for forgiving me.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Take heed
to yourselves

for surely
there will be

others
sinning against you –

forgive
quickly.

God bless you as you forgive someone today!

“I say to you, arise, take up your bed and go your way to your house.”  Mark 2:11 NKJV

“And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went out in the presence of them all, so that all were amazed and glorified God, saying, ‘We never saw anything like this.”  Mark 2:12 NKJV

We’ve never
seen anything like this

who is it
who does these things?

He who forgives sins
and heals paralytics

is none other than
Jesus our King!

Uncover my
foundations
break in pieces
what You find

of You, Lord

and pride.
