How you can outrun the past

Shoes picture by s. thornton (flickr creative commons) Sometimes the past chases you.

You hear its footsteps

in the alley of your mind.

Listen even closer

and you’ll hear

the heartbeat of One who loves you.

Instead of behind you,

He stands before you,

arms open, always saying,

“Come to Me.

I’m stronger than the past.

I’m even more real than those memories.


right here, right now,

and I will be your future too.”

All that is behind you fades away and you are safe where you belong.

The only sounds now are His steps, yours following, as you walk toward His plans together.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
