Accepting His Mercy and Grace

How can I forgive myself
For all the wrong I’ve done
For cruel, hateful, selfish actions
That didn’t bless anyone

How can I look in the mirror
And see past the grief of my own mistakes
Because the unkind acts of others don’t hurt
Like the burden of my own disgrace

But like the jet-stream of an airplane
That dissipates in the sunshine
God has erased the dirty sins of my past
That I held tightly…calling them mine

He sent His son into the world
For people just like me
Washing our dirty, filthy, stains with His blood
Hanging from a tree

So there is no more reason to harbor
The guilt of past days sin
Lay it down for good
Never to pick it back up again

Harboring guilt from what has already been forgiven
Is not what The Lord wants from us
But acceptance of His mercy and grace
Yes, that makes us victorious!
