Forgiveness by TobyMac

'Cause we all make mistakes sometimes
And we all steped across that line
But nothing's sweeter than the day we find
We find...

It's hanging over him like the clouds of Seattle
And raining on his swag, falling deeper in the saddle
It's written on his face, he don't have to speak a sound
Somebody call the 5-0, we've got a man down

Now you can go and play it like your all rock 'n' roll
And guilt does a job on each and every man's soul
And when your head hits the pillow with the night fall
You can bet your life that it's gonna be a fight y'all

'Cause we all make mistakes sometimes
And we've all stepped across that line
But nothing's sweeter than the day we find
Forgiveness, forgiveness

And we all stumble and we fall
Bridges burn in the heat of it all
But nothing's sweeter than the day we call
We call

Out for forgiveness
We all need, we all need
We all need forgiveness
We all need, we all need

Mister Lecrae

My mama told me what I would be in for
If I keep all this anger inside me pint up
My heart's been broken, my wounds been open
And I don't know if I can hear "I'm sorry" been spoken
But those forgiving much should be quicker to give it
And God forgave me for it all, Jesus bleed forgiveness
So when the stones fly and they aimed at you
Just say "forgive 'em Father, they know not what they do"

Now you can go and play it like your all rock 'n' roll
And guilt does a job on each and every man's soul
And when your head hits the pillow with the night fall
You can bet your life that it's gonna be a fight y'all

'Cause we all make mistakes sometimes
And we've all stepped across that line
But nothing's sweeter than the day we find
Forgiveness, forgiveness

And we all step on it and fall
Bridges burn in the heat it all
But nothing's sweeter than the day
Sweeter than the day we call

Out for forgiveness
You know we need that that that
You know we need that that that
You know we need that that that

No matter how lost you are
You're not that far, you're not too far (from forgiveness)
No matter how hurt you are
You're not that far, you're not too far (from forgiveness)
And no matter how wrong you are
You're not that far, you're not too far (from forgiveness)
And no matter who you are
You're not that far, you're not too far (from forgiveness)

Ask for forgiveness

'Cause we all make mistakes sometimes
And we've all stepped across that line
But nothing's sweeter than the day we find
Forgiveness, forgiveness

And we all stumble and we fall
Bridges burn in the heat of it all
But nothing's sweeter than the day
Sweeter than the day, we call

Out for forgiveness
We all need, we all need
We all need forgiveness
We all need, we all need





Everyone makes mistakes sometimes, even when we don't realize it. But we all need to forgive, even when that person never asked for it.

There are two big lies that follow the word forgiveness around, number one is to forgive is to forget, and number two is that the person must ask for forgiveness before you can give it. Now let me ask you something, we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, even as little babes, do you think we recognize every sin in our lives to bring them to God? I don't think so, there are many things that I am still learning are sins. Yet God forgives us for them anyways. And really? Forget? God didn't make us to forget things like that. Our brains are so complex they filter out the unimportant stuff and keep the things it thinks we need, with any subconscious thought about it. That's why we must keep forgiving and forgiving over and over again, sometimes it goes away immediately if the hurt wasn't that bad, but if it was, Satan will use that to try to bring us down, but we've got to remember to keep forgiving.

Remember that forgiving one another is just as good for both of the people. When you live with pent up anger it's only going to boil inside you, until it eats you from the inside out.

Jesus forgave you and that other person (If their a Christian) why do you think what was good for the King of Kings isn't good enough for you?

If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. I don't mind helpful criticism. But talking trash about me or anyone else is not okay. I love comments though, so feel free. :)
