It is hard to believe the person I see in old family albums is really me. Really in many ways it is not me. I do not look the same, think, or believe the same. I am a new creation since I asked Jesus to forgive me and to become Lord of my life.
When the Book is Opened
Family albums are opened every once and awhile;
At the images portrayed our heart smiles.
How different you were back then;
And oh what a change you see in your family and friends.
One day you will behold the books of the Lord.
The things about you and your family that He records.
As you are seated on the other side of grace,
Because you are His, they too bring a smile to your face.
Many wonderful events you will see and hear,
As your friends and family are drawn near.
The world does not the same remain,
Proudly all will declare Jesus’ name,
The redeemed are forever to be at God’s side.
A lovely image to behold as His bride.
Not one stain or flaw will appear.
Not one negative word will you hear.
Without blemish before Him you stand;
Such joy and peace rules the land.
Love, peace, and joy walk in accord,
All that breathes forever in tune with the Lord.
Remember…one day when you reminisce with Him
The good times never end.
