08. Forgive Yourself

Wide-Eyed and Mystified
by downhere



 

You keep laying down $100 bills
On the counter of your untamed guilt
And you’ll keep paying out from your empty purse
Until you feel you’ve satisfied your curse
No one here is throwing stones
But you have got to drop your own

Forgive yourself, forgive yourself
Anyone who bears a scar wants to forget it
Forgive yourself, forgive yourself
Nothing ever frees you more than just believing
That you’ve been forgiven, come out of the prison

Can you tell me how you spend every day
Looking in the mirror of your shame
And staring like a judge, you are ruling for yourself
You tied a stone around your neck
You’re drowning in a past regret

Don’t believe it’s okay to be like this
Don’t believe you deserve to live like this
‘Cause every part of you wants to know
Just one reason why you should let go

Forgive yourself, forgive yourself
Nothing ever frees you more than just believing
Come out of the prison
You’ve been delivered



Behind the Song:
"I believe that nothing can trump God's forgiveness. When God has forgiven, He forgives completely—He holds nothing back, and there's nothing left over. That's easy to say when I'm far away from any travesty I may have gotten myself into. It's not so easy to grasp, though, after I've done something so utterly despicable that I can barely even stand the sight of my own face in the mirror. Whether I believe I have been forgiven or not is not the issue. Once God has forgiven, no amount of belief or disbelief can alter that. I've learned that forgiving myself—emotionally/spiritually recovering from sin, and the shame that often follows it—can only happen inasmuch as I believe I have received forgiveness." - Marc Martel (downhere)
