Let All Past Troubles be Forgot (A Christian Version of “Let Old Acquaintance be Forgot”) by Daniel Whyte III and Daniella Whyte
“If anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation, the old has passed away, the new has come.”
2 Corinthians 5:17
“May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.”
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
“Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.”
“Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.”
No, dear brothers and sisters, I am still not all I should be, but I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us up to heaven.
“but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight”
Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil.
