Live for the Future

You shouldn’t live in the past
You should forget that at last
Because Jesus died on the cross
So you would not suffer the loss.

Each action that you take
You can have your heart break
It reflects back on God
He can make your heart thawed.

God gave you a job to do
He really depends on you
If you do your job well
He will give many blessings to tell.

If you share with Him your love
You will have things to be proud of
A little pride is not wrong
God can take it and make you strong.

Pride in God is a wonderful thing
It makes you want to sing
Pride can make you glorify Him
And fill your heart to the brim.

How glad are you to be God’s child?
Do people know by the way you smile?
Can they tell by the way you act?
They can’t know if for a fact.

When your heart is filled with God’s love
You can hear the angels singing far above
A song of peace and rest
And you know you are truly blessed.

Live for the future as in NOW
God will show you just how
The past is gone and is dead
You have nothing more to dread.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
