NOW I AM FORGIVEN…by Carl Gooch

Now I am Forgiven
I was once filled with doubt
Because I did not know loves grip
I tried to hide, to run away
I even denied you with my lips
It was for me you came to save
All of my sins you forgave
Now I am forgiven
Now it is for you I am living
And I am forgiven
I saw you hanging on the cross
I fell to my knees tear on my face
You were beaten and bloody
And I knew you had taken my place
It was for me you came to save
All of my sins you forgave
Now I am forgiven
Now it is for you I am living
And I am forgiven
I was foolish out of control
I did things that brought shame
But while I was deep in sin
In your mercy my soul to reclaim

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
