(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope in not holding back the love of forgiving myself through ‘The Forgiveness King,’ Jesus Christ.”)

You can’t forgive yourself. What will it take

for you to say, “All I’ve done wrong, All done?”

You weren’t You back then. You were you heartbreak,

feared days of sun. Now, you’re You through The Son.

Can I forgive myself, forgetting me

of the past who lived for the victim trap?

I thought, “Look! I’m on The Cross! Can’t you see

what’s done to me? Save me!” Christ said, “Mine! Scrap!”

“Forgive yourself for I forgive it all,”

says Jesus. “Listen not to others ‘blame.'”

If He forgave it “Father God,” our call

is, “So do I forgive it all the same.”

“Forgive them, Father. They know not The Fee.”

He Paid It, we cash It, “I forgive me.”

  1. You’re right, Dag, no reason, and yet most of us struggle with this BIG TIME! For me, it has to be forgiveness through Jesus’ Work on The Cross. I’ve tried every other possible way to forgive me. “There is therefore now no condemnation (NOT GUILTY! FORGIVEN!) to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit” (Romans 8:1). So, if this is true, we are not talking about Self-forgiveness (flesh); we are talking about Spirit-forgiveness (Jesus). Not trying to be “holier than thou” but rather being “holier as the least of these.” – Blessings, Timothy
