No More Yesterdays

Forget about yesterday, it is gone
Retain those lessons and move on
For good or ill, yesterday is no more
Focus only on what today has in store

Washed away is all your sins
by faith in Christ your new life begins
Mountain tops and dark valleys deep
All of them, let yesterday keep

Today is the day it all begins
Repented are all of yesterday's sins
You cannot make up for the lost time
Nor do you carry yesterday's grime

Be washed anew in His blood
Open up and let His Spirit flood
The broken vessel is filled again
Today is the day where it all begins



All,

Moment of revalation for me. As I brood over all my neglected Christian duties over the last few years, I felt overwhelmed on where to begin my travel back to the narrow path. I worried about how I am going to make up for my deriliction the last 3 years.

As I was reading old poems and comments it was revealed to me that I was missing a big point. That only today applies. My sins have been washed from the begining of my life to the end of my life once I accept Christ and the grace that came through His sacrifice on the Cross. I can only repent yesterdays and learn the lessons from them. I can't control tomorrow because I am not promised tomorrow. I can only do today. Today I can choose to be the Christian that I am going to be. Today, I can choose to follow where I am lead. Today, is the day. Today is the day that the Lord has made and I will be glad in it. I get it.

I couldn't see past my past failures, which was causing today's failures...no more devil! Today is the Lord's along with my heart, soul, and mind.

God bless all of you,

Christian

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Angels are smiling and singing. I thought of the story of the prodigal son (Luke 15) as I read your comment at the end. I love the piece. May it help others to know that God's grace is sufficient. Welcome back!

Christian, we all struggle in our walk... sometimes when we have strayed, the fellowship back in the arms of Christ is that much sweeter. Not that we should stray to have a close fellowship.. but it just awesome to know that God allows us to come back to him with his open arms. God bless your walk and I will keep you in my prayers.
