How often do I live life
Looking in the rear view mirror
Trying to move forward
All the while glancing back
Trying to focus on today
But thinking of the past
Why do I live with past regrets
Of sins confessed, repented of and forgiven
Which only robs each day
Of peace, hope and joy
How often do I mourn what’s lost
Failing to trust God’s plan for today
When will I choose to let go of my grief
Embrace and celebrate what the Lord has given me today?
