This is a good poem that encouraged me to keep my eyes focused on the Lord
no matter what I may go through in life and in turn God will be faithful
to meet my every need. I hope you will be blessed by this poem as I was.
A BRIGHTER DAY
There'll be a brighter day tomorrow
Just trust in God he'll share your sorrow.
Oh lay your cares at the Saviors feet
And when you do you'll feel complete.
He'll recreate your life once torn
You'll feel like you've just been reborn.
Give praise to Him and then you feel
His love and strength to help you deal.
With life's hard times though often sad
He'll give you joy and make you glad.
Look to the Lord just trust in Him
He lifts us up when we feel grim.
So don't look back just keep on praying
You'll feel His presence softly saying
"I'll fill your cup and take your pain
You've nothing to lose but all to gain.
Come unto me I'll give you rest
I'll comfort you through troubling tests."
Though they seem long He'll make a way
To lead you on to a brighter day.

The Bible declares in Philippians 3:13 "…forgetting those things which
are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before." It is
very important for us to forget about our past mistakes and look to the
future with a renewed outlook. Life is short and if we dwell on the past
then we are hurting our future of living a successful, happy, love filled
God Himself says in Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the thoughts that I think
toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give
you an expected end." God has big dreams for us and wants each believer
to be completely whole in mind, body and spirit but the enemy is always
quick to come and remind us of our past sins and mistakes, which may work
and get us down and discouraged from being all that God wants us to
be. Never give way to the enemy because he is only seeking to steal, kill
and destroy, which is the exact opposite of what God wants for your life
I want you to be encouraged and know that once you come to God and ask
forgiveness of your sins, that God has forgiven you and will remember your
sins no more (Isaiah 43:25).
Remember: If satan reminds you of your past; you remind him of his future!
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Psalm 103:11-14 "For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is
His mercy toward them that fear Him. As far as the east is from the west,
so far hath He removed our transgressions from us. Like as a father
pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear Him. For
knoweth our frame; He remembereth that we are dust."
John 10:10-11 Jesus says "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to
kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they
might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd
giveth His life for the sheep."
2 Chronicles 7:14 "If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble
themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways;
then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal
Psalm 103:2-5 "Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who
redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness
and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy
youth is renewed like the eagle's."
