IF WE COULD LIVE OUR LIVES AGAIN 

"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

If we could choose to live our lives again - Would we ?
Would we dare to face the wrong decisions made - 
In a completely different way ?
Would we have the courage to persevere - until -
We saw the answers turn out right ?
And not pursue the same old paths of selfishness-
That led to such unneedful sorrows -
Seen  so clearly - with hindsight .
Or - would we choose the Higher path -
Marked out for us - in GOD's all Perfect Plan .
Where we would know of greater glory -
Knowing - we were being led - and cherished -
By the Almighty's Hand .

I know - there is no fruitfulness - in looking back 
Or living with regret .
As it leaves the soul to languish - in futility -
With longings - never met .
So - knowing that we can't turn back the clocks 
Or tread the path of Yester-year - once more .
We must go forward - though - more wistful now 
But - with new courage - and  quiet confidence -
As we choose to walk through -
Tomorrow's Open Door.

So - let us lay aside all past mistakes 
That will hinder - our onward way -
And with contentment - for each new moment -
Let us embrace the future - come what may .
And - with GOD's Help and Guidance -
May we step towards the dawn .
When we will see HIS Face of Beauty -
And our past - will be forever Gone .


"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

I believe there is a time in all our lives  when we 
have to make the decision that - the only way 
forward - is to let go of the past .... So - if that is 
you today - then stop for a moment - and as 
tangibly as possible - wrap up the past - and 
then bury it - and then - don't dig it up ever again .

"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

With love in Jesus' Name 
from S.C.Mitchell.
