FORGETTING WHAT’S BEHIND US
(Commentary on Philippians 3:13-14)
Forget the past and strive ahead,
The working Apostle Paul said…
But use past parts
To earn street smarts
Avoiding those things that are dead.
Certain things won’t let go,
So use them yourself to know…*
God loves you in fact
Through personal contact,
Even those things you wish weren’t so.
For you are more than a name,
Certainly with a blogger’s fame…
Knowing who you are
Is better by far
Than denying your place in the game.
Then strive with all of your might
To catch and share Light…
Follow life’s plan
However you can,
Sharing Love and burning Bright!
