Remembering 9/11



Remembering 9/11

Lord - - Help my Unforgiveness
 
 

Lord I believe, Help thou my unbelief!
These words were sincere as the man spoke,
He had asked Jesus for a miracle to spare his child,
His words came with expectation and with hope

 

Oh Lord today we remember the devastation
Caused by those who thrive on terror,
Hate nourished their very thoughts and minds
They were void of even considering their error.

 

We grieve those who were lost in the rubble,
Children, men, and women; all innocent of this deed,
Our sorrow knows no bounds as we moan our loss,
Why, why would men be so vile? What was their need?

 

I cannot find it in my heart to forgive those terrible men,
From their souls came seeds of destruction they have sown.
Lord, help me to draw upon your forgiveness,
Because I have nothing left to forgive on my own.

 

Give me peace where there is none, and bring me grace,
Let me understand how you are able to forgive,
Even these awful men who sinned against you,
Teach me Lord, show me your heart and the way to live.

 

When you breathed your last, I know it was for all,
Did you love those who hated you, even as you died?
And still the miserable sinners who devise wickedness?
Did you have me in mind when you gave your life?

 

I must pray when I do not feel the energy to do so,
I pray for those who lost family, and those who survived.
Lord Help my unbelief, help my un-forgiveness,
Teach me to forgive as you have shown us by your life.

  2. It was one of the strongest situations in my mind and heart then and I didn't recover quickly. I knew much, saw much, and shared reality much. And was in Uganda just a couple years later, much was dropped on me in and through them, too. I can never forget!! Thank you for sharing.
