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


I would not seek something


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


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


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
