Relinquish yesterday, live today,
Don't pause to look behind,
The past need have no hold on you,
Need not control your mind.
Your past was nailed upon His cross,
It's dealt with once for all,
No longer need it bring you shame,
Now rise to heed God's call.
You have a bright tomorrow,
Though yesterday left wounds,
It is those very scars He'll use
To grow His choicest blooms.
"The Lord is compassionate and gracious. Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness. He will not always strive with us, Nor will He keep His anger forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us." Psalm 103:8-12 (New American Standard Bible)
