He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. - Colossians 1:15-16

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?
