No Longer the Past

An endless loop
Plays in my head
Of what I haven’t been
My faults and failures
Haunt my thoughts
Remind me of my sin
What loss there is
In the past I think
Decisions made in haste
So many hours
Left behind
Now piled up as waste

Fear not the past
The Lord declares
The future’s still to be
By grace divine
The days ahead
Will unfold differently
The Holy One
Can bring new life
To those who seem as dead
Redemption comes
To those who ask
And go where they are led
