Grace and Mercy

A choice once made and acted on
Has consequences far beyond
What I could have ever imagined
On that cold, sunny day

What began as an innocent stroll
Plunged me into a deep, dark hole
Of self-loathing and confusion
Endless and forever it seemed

Even once I finally emerged
And the deepest depression had been purged
Consequences of my choice remain
As fearful thoughts return

To look at me you’d never guess
The doubt and distrust that aim to oppress
Holding me back from what I could be
If only I could change that one choice

But the evil one often accuses
My past disobedience he artfully uses
To hold me fast to a past I’m ashamed of
Alleging God can’t possibly forgive me

Today my past choice can’t be changed
Yet the guilty feelings are gladly exchanged
For the truth of God’s grace and mercy
Granted anew each day
