Faithful to Forgive

I have sinned against God so many times. I have forsaken Him and pushed Him out of my life time and time again. I have turned my back on Him and there have been times I have forgotten or just simply ignored Him.

My mind has been so overwhelmed with the forgiveness of God! Time and again the Lord has faithfully forgiven me for things in my life.

While this never ceases to amaze me, it is hard for me to comprehend how He continues to forgive me repeatedly for the same things. When I struggle with a sin in my life He doesn't kick me to the curb. Instead He forgives me and patiently helps me to overcome those things.

He forgives me even when I don't pray or live for Him. He forgives me when I deliberately disobey His word.
I am so unworthy, yet He loves me!

Lord, my heavy heart is weighing on my mind
Cause I have let You down one more time.
While my broken hearted eyes are filling up with tears
We both know the reason why I'm here.

When I confess my failures
You've been faithful to forgive
Each guilty stain, one by one
You have cleansed
So I bow my heavy heart before You again
For You have been faithful
Ever faithful to forgive.

Oh, what needless pain I've suffered on my own
Oh the sleepless nights I've faced alone.
All because I fail to run to Your river of mercy
Let Your healing waters cleanse my soul.
