Rear View Mirror Living


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?
