I listen to a lot of contemp Christian music (thank you lord for KLOVE!). One song that is "haunting" me is Matthew West's Forgiveness.

I was chatting with another Survivor about his issues with his mother. And all MY stuff about MY mother came up. And I remembered this song... There is much Truth and Power in it, yet I so want to keep status quo... especially with my mother!

Forgiveness (Matthew West)

Lyrics

Itís the hardest thing to give away
And the last thing on your mind today
It always goes to those that donít deserve

Itís the opposite of how you feel
When the pain they caused is just too real
It takes everything you have just to say the wordÖ

Forgiveness
Forgiveness

It flies in the face of all your pride
It moves away the mad inside
Itís always angerís own worst enemy
Even when the jury and the judge
Say you gotta right to hold a grudge
Itís the whisper in your ear saying ĎSet It Freeí

Forgiveness, Forgiveness
Forgiveness, Forgiveness

Show me how to love the unlovable
Show me how to reach the unreachable
Help me now to do the impossible

Forgiveness, Forgiveness

Help me now to do the impossible
Forgiveness

Itíll clear the bitterness away
It can even set a prisoner free
There is no end to what itís power can do
So, let it go and be amazed
By what you see through eyes of grace
The prisoner that it really frees is you

Forgiveness, Forgiveness
Forgiveness, Forgiveness

Show me how to love the unlovable
Show me how to reach the unreachable
Help me now to do the impossible
Forgiveness

I want to finally set it free
So show me how to see what Your mercy sees
Help me now to give what You gave to me
Forgiveness, Forgiveness
