Life in the Rear View Mirror


Life in the Rear View Mirror,

Will stop you from moving ahead.

Stop focusing on your sins.

They have been left for dead.


Your past is forgotten and buried,

By the One who died for you.

He wants you to look forward.

He has better things for you to do.


Don’t re-live the history.

Don’t open the hurtful wounds.

Jesus did not look back,

But left that dark cold tomb.


He didn’t live in regret.

Every time we sinned again.

He forgave you like He promised.

He is your closest friend.


Don’t waste your energy.

Use that energy for the future.

Feed your soul with the Word.

You can grow what you nurture.


Looking back, opens wounds,

That are meant to be healed.

Jesus forgave you time and again.

Your heart has been sealed.


You have His name now.

He will fight your battles today.

Look forward to your destiny.

His grace will cover your way.

John 6:63-68


63It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. 64But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. 65And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. 66From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. 67Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? 68Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. 69And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.


Many times when we look back in life, we start to doubt our future or hold onto sins of the past, to weaken our walk. It is like holding onto a bag of garbage and carrying it around with us. It starts to stink and it slows us down as we walk. It stops us from going some places that we might go to without our garbage with us. To put down that garbage, takes faith that God will get rid of it for you. Many people walk in doubt and in insecurity. They do not walk like a child of the King. They walk like a child of the thief. They walk in shame and feel they are unworthy of anything that is good. This is the reason, we need to believe that He has forgiven and forgotten our sin. We do not need to waste our time and look back. He has better things for us to do. Look to the future that God has planned for you.
