God Put My Past Behind Me!

God Put My Past Behind Me…


God took away my past, and brought peace within.

He washed me clean and took away my sin!


God took away the sorrow I had

and brought joy instead.

He gave to me words of life and his daily bread!


God took away the pain I had.

 I no longer have to bear!

He spoke words of comfort to me

and told me that he cares!


God took away the many uncertainties

 that laid before me…

He brought his love to my heart,

and now is always with me!


God took away the “weights of life”

that would “pull me down.”

Each day that I’m with him.

 His grace is all around!


God took all doubts I had and brought

a healing to my mind!

He’s been good to me! 

 Always loving and kind!


God can take away your yesterdays!

 Why not give him a chance?

He can change your life today!

 No matter the circumstance!


God will always be there for you… 

Waiting for your call!

Living for him and trusting him

will always be worth it all!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
