MY PAST CAN'T HOLD ME DOWN!

The more I try to renew my mind
the more the devil tries to remind
me of my past, of who I was;
last week, last month, last year and last decade;



But God says that I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

So I took the spade out of my thoughts
the devil put there for me to bury myself;
crawled on up out of that hole of self pity,



Shimmied all the dirt off my shoulders
caked up so much that it had me; hunched over and Red Rovered myself right on back to my Father's Potter's Wheel



Locked God's word in my heart so the devil couldn't steal-
what he tries to kill and destroy out of my soul.
Climbed on that Potter's Wheel;
a strange and awful looking mold
of an earthen vessel



I nestled myself at the feet of my God
as He begins to work His hands
into the awkwardness of my clay
spinning and shaping and molding
me all which-waytaking the form of what His words say,
"that I am fearfully and wonderfully made"

Beautiful words and lines of poetry. 

Our past is in the past,  we should not be blaming ourselves and know that God has a beautiful future plan for us, when the devil wants to remind you of it, tell him you have moved on and moving on to your glorious future

Beautiful poet. The past is gone and must remain a bygone. Look forward and move on to a greater and brighter future.

Let the word of God have a place in you to remold and amend you to a glorious tomorrow.

Wow.wonderful words zizy.The devil can do nothing when we are holding the God strongly.

Don't look back on your past aand just move on to your bright future.God has planned a better decision for us in the future so we shouldn't look back.

Because,as you said,that i'm fearfully and wonderfully made
