As You carry me.


Forgiveness doesn’t come easy

Forgetting is harder still.

The pain of the deed comes unbidden

Filling my heart until

The tears start flowing and quietly

Wiping the tears away

I cry to my Father in heaven

Please take this pain away


They say that time is a healer

But what if time stands still

Or ticks like a snail moving slowly

Climbing an endless hill.

Each moment stretched out like elastic

Each hour an endurance to bear

And through the tears and the heartache

The cry ‘My God, are you there?’


I give it all to you Lord

The heartache and the pain

The tears and the grievances

Oh give me joy again

The footprints in the sand I see

As we walk along the shore

I feel the sun on my face

As you carry me.


1Jo 5:5  Who is it that overcomes the world?

Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.


When we are betrayed by a friend who you trusted

implicitly it is hard to forgive AND forget. Only the grace

of God can help us choose not to remember.
