It’s not that I don’t remember,
it’s just that I choose to forget
my life as I lived it . . .
before the day Jesus and I met.
It’s not that I can’t recall,
the places that I have been
but, I know it’s just the devil
who wants to visit my past sin.
It’s not that I don’t regret,
or feel the shame of disgrace
it’s just that I know I’m forgiven
because of Jesus’ awesome grace.
It’s not that I don’t consider,
my life before I was saved
it’s just that I don’t want to be
to my former days enslaved.
So, don’t throw in others faces,
the wrong things they have done
for, we’re all a bunch of sinners
needing to forgive every one!
King James Version
“Behold, for peace I had great bitterness:
but thou hast in love to my soul delivered
it from the pit of corruption:
for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back.
Deborah Ann Belka
