The past came knocking today, with nothing new to say;
She told it to leave and yet there it stayed.
It invaded her thoughts and held her captive within;
Bringing visions and flashbacks of a life lived in sin.
The trip down memory lane revealed a girl covered in shame;
Saddened by her choices and haunted from outside voices.
She remembered she was washed clean one glorious day when she grew tired of living life her way;
In an instant He made her new, not by good works but just by asking Him to.
So, she slammed the door and fell to her knees, thankful these were distant memories;
For where she was and where she is, was a lifetime apart when she recalled she was His.
The light broke through and a smile reappeared, as her future was calling and it was instantly clear;
She wasn’t her past nor her mistakes, she was God's daughter and all sins He erased.
