Offender To Contender

“But For My Offenders I Would Not Seek Something Better”

Many years I suffered depression

And anger

Not realizing it was the result of

Unforgiveness, self pity and the

Inability to accept the past and all

Of its trauma and abuse

~~~

Sitting on the stool

Of despondency, reviewing

My afflictions

I am stricken with the thought

But for the cruelties of my

Offenders

I would not seek something

Better

I would not be the person I

Have become

But how do I let go of something

So cruel?

My wounds are all I have

Witnessed

How do I close the door to these

Thoughts of unforgiveness?

I try and try again only to fall upon

My knees

Oh, please, what can I do to

Release this drumming of the

Past?

Of myself I cannot, I look to

Another that I may

Forgive and be free at last!

~~~

Comforting thought for the day

“For I consider that the sufferings of

This present time are not worthy to be

Compared with the glory which shall

Be revealed in us”

Romans 8:18
