The Book Of My Life

There have been some painful pages
In the chapters of my life,
And some I'd willingly erase
When I caused endless strife.

But I am, O so thankful, Lord,
The end has not yet come,
That there are still some pages left
For what I can become.

Dip Your pen within my spirit
With heaven's ink still write,
Though my past may hint of darkness
Still my future can be bright.

For the blots are now behind me,
Heaven's hand now writes each script,
And my future's paved with promise
In God's hands I'm firmly gripped.

There's a purpose in each chapter
And a plot clearly defined,
But I will not know the finish
'Til the Author's name is signed.

"And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ--right up to the time of His return--developing (that good work) and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you." Philippians 1:6 (Amplified)
