Philippians 1:6

Lingering in the past
Once again goes my mind
Recalling the mistakes
That I have left behind.
The floods of emptiness
Infuse my heart again,
Lord, please remind me that
This is now, that was then!
For I am freely bound
Adoring love has graced;
Residual passion-
Former self now replaced.
Iím no longer under
The weight of prior sin.
I live in the present,
Not past that has been.
For You, Lord have begun
Amazing work in me,
Completing only what
Is plausible with thee!
The future does not hold
The faults Iíve left behind!
Past faults and present grace
Now becomes intertwined.
Forming a lump of clay,
Gloriously remade;
Presenting handiwork
By Your hands now displayed!

Great topic, great flow, great message. Don't worry sister, you are not the only one who had to learn this lesson again. This ties in great with my "No More Yesterdays" I recently posted. Keep up the great works and keep serving. In Christ, Christian
