It Isn’t Too Late

Written by Julie

On October 3, 2020

my mind has wandered away from me
gone to ride the train of memory
gone to bring back all the boxes I closed
all my fears, secrets and all my woes
reminding me of the past
and of chances I’ve lost
reminding me that there were things
I didn’t do right.
it’s keeping me up at night
it’s making me cry
it’s making me wonder why
I was so foolish then
sometimes I feel like
I wasted my beginning.
help me to know you’re here
to know you’re near
help me to realize
that today is today
and the past is the past
help me to give in
to your forgiveness and love
please give me a shove
to take the gift of salvation
you’ve offered me.
tell me what you’ve already told me
that with you it’s never too late
show me that I’m not the same me
come in, in to my heart
give me the lyrics
to the song of a new start.
tell me what you’ve already told me
even in my state
it isn’t too late.

~Tane Hannah


Stop dwelling on past events and brooding over times gone by;

…forgetting those things which are behind… I press toward the mark…

Isaiah 43:18 (CJB); Philippians 3:13-14 (KJV)

Forget the past mistakes. Forget the regrets, the pain, the things you wish you could do over. Don’t dwell on history–live in the present! God is called I AM for a reason.

I especially love these lines: “give me the lyrics / to the song of a new start.”
God is a Song-Giver. Job 35:10 says that God, our maker, gives songs in the night. Psalm 40:3 declares that God “hath put a new song in my mouth,” and Isaiah 30:29 promises, “Ye shall have a song.”
And it’s not just any song. It’s the song of a new start. Of a fresh beginning. Of another chance. Of grace and mercy and forgiveness and love and joy and peace and blessings.
John Newton’s well-known and loved song is an example of this: “I once was lost but now am found, Was blind but now I see.” The song of a new start. Because of grace.

That’s all I have to say for now, other than: Feel free to check out Tane’s blog (link above)! I enjoyed reading through her writings and can’t wait to read more! 😊
