Mercy


 


As I reflect on my life and look at my past


I often think about  how many times Jehovah


wished I would learn at last


 


For now as a parent myself, I understand


How sad I made him, rejecting his loving hand


 


Yet even as I, as a parent will forgive


So did Jehovah that I may may live


 


When overwhelmed by grief and shame


I remember why Jehovah


kindly gave me his name


 


He sees what I may not


And reaches down insuring me


that he has not forgot


 


The love I have deep in my heart


For such, his mercy he does impart


 


Leading me gently back to his fold


Trusting me still, his name to uphold


 


Teaching me how to show others the same


Granting forgiveness, relieving their pain


 


Just as I was hurt and ashamed in need of relief


So now it is my turn to ease their grief


 


Jehovah grants us mercy so we may continue to grow


Ever stronger in our faith and the love we show


 


So let us give to others what they desperately need


When they hurt us and frustrate us in word or deed


 


For then we really do demonstrate


How greatly Jehovah's mercy we appreciate


 


If there is someone that has hurt you


The kindest gift you will ever give


Is making it easy for them to live


 


After all, we want for them life


So quickly be ready to end the strife


 


It truly is the greatest gift


Then we our own eyes can lift


 


As we honor the Father that gave us his name


Not begrudgingly or placing  blame


 


Being eager to show that we have truly learned


Obedience ourselves when mercy we discern


 


Will carry our brother and lift his heart


If we, our forgiveness will impart

Hey sister, just a suggestion... Wouldn't it be better to create a single thread were you can put your beautiful poetry?

Btw, you're a gifted writer ;)
