Release or Rehearse

There’s only one way to true healing
And that way must be final and first
Don’t hold on to all those bad feelings
Release pain, forgive don’t rehearse

Reliving what was wrong is not correction
Does not put things in reverse
Let it go, can’t change past direction
The wound’s closing, don’t ever rehearse

Why pick at the scab to uncover
What would naturally heal on its own?
Let it go, nothing new to discover
Revenge? It is way overblown!!

I have two ways to respond to rejection
To those who intentionally curse
Count their offenses and refuse them affection
Or release it, and never rehearse

In release there is precious treasure
I have only one cause to pursue
Glorify God, love without measure
God uses me as I embrace you

Romans 13:8 Owe no man anything, but to love one another: for he that loves another has fulfilled the law.
