The Bible says to not look back,
To look ahead and keep on track.
Heaven's our final goal it's true.
Each day God will our strength renew.
To remember sins of the past
Will only make us feel downcast.
God forgives and remembers not.
He never has an afterthought.
As far as east is from the west,
Are our sins that are confessed.
We need to forgive in this way too,
Not matter what others may do.
Unforgiveness is a sin.
Renounce it and let Jesus in.
To think about how good we've been,
To be self righteous, is a sin.
Reliving things that caused us grief
Bring to Jesus to find relief.
On the other hand, it is true,
Remembered blessings seem brand new.
Looking back on joys of the past,
Seems to make their memory last.
We should remember to rejoice,
Each day in praise to raise our voice.
Always remember heaven's our goal,
The destination of our soul.
We'll count the blessings of the past,
Today's and those to come, unsurpassed.
