The Forgiving God

Heavenly Father you are forgiving,
You do not forsake or cast away in our weaknesses,
You do not condemn in our lowliest state,
You do not shun and you do not disown us, not in our darkest moment at the least,
You do not turn us over to the enemy
Neither do you make us a prey for the devils.

You are not a man that you would hold grudges against anybody,
You are not a man that you would pay evil for evil,
You are not a man that you would not answer us when we call on you even in our sinful state,
You are not a man who would ignore the request of a loved one,

You are not easily angered
You are not easily frustrated
You are not easily irritated
You are not easily offended
You are not impatient with us

You are long-suffering, forbearing and uncomplaining
You give us long ropes to pull
You are patient and you are kind
You are full of mercy and you are compassionate

You see beyond our actions and you deal with us according to our motives
You look into our hearts and you reward us accordingly
You have mercy upon whom you will have mercy and
You judge the contentious

You see our inadequacies and you love us more
You see our weaknesses and you judge us less
You see our failures and you calm our fears
You see our state of mind and you cover us with your everlasting love
In all our miserable self you cast us not away

You choose to shine in us and through us
You turn our shame into fame
You turn our mess into a message
You turn our passion into flame
You break the stony heart and you give a heart of flesh
You turn over our weaknesses and they are made perfect in your strength
Heavenly Father great is your forgiveness towards us
