A Clean Slate

A clean slate, yes that is what I heard,

No memory that I had ever done the deed.

I liked that idea, but I was a bit skeptical about it,

How did He just forget what I had done?

But I found that He loves me too much to hold it against me,

I am very appreciative of it, though I know I don't deserve it.

He loved me enough to give me His son,

To be sure that my slate was kept clean.

If He loved me so much to forgive me,

Why can't I forgive those who have hurt me?

For I know that I have hurt Him,

Yet He has chosen to forgive me.

I love Him.

He loves me.

He did everything for me,

So in return, I will do everything for Him.

I will find my brother, tell him I forgive him.

I will find my sister, tell her I forgive her.

I will find my friends, tell them I forgive them.

I will find my co-worker, tell her I forgive her.

I will find those I have hurt, and I will ask for forgiveness.

For now that I've received His forgiveness, I feel the need for others.
