When the Heart is Troubled and the Past is not far Behind

Dear God,
Forgive me for asking you to forgive me once again.

It's just.... I--- I find it hard to forgive myself...

The sin has stained
and the guilt remains

Not because of you, dear Lord
For you are loving,
But because of me and my own estate

Your mercy fell
on me like rain
Yet, I dried off and went back again

To the pit of lies
Long suffering and cries

I was a fool to ever go back
And as I did, I lost track

Yet, you poured out your loving mercies
More than once or twice

You loved me still
In my demise

It's been so long
So long ago
Why won't it let me go?

"No... there is no hold on me per say"
I thought I heard my heart's voice say

"Let it go... it's in the past... it's now okay"

And yet I gave it another second of my day
A moment lost, now gone away

Now I resolve: I won't keep living this way
Instead, I'll pray...

Forgive me Lord, for asking you to forgive me one more time again.

Hebrews 10:17-18, "Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more. And where these have been forgiven, there is no longer any sacrifice for sin."
