Will My History Destroy My Destiny?

Will my history destroy my destiny?

Will I be everything You originally planned for me?
Have my own immature decisions made out of pain,
Undermined my purpose for which Christ was slain?

Jeremiah 29:11 says You have a plan for me to fulfil,
But how can this happen under my own will,
That has made every self-destructive decision to destroy Your plan.
Surely my purpose has now been taken out of Your hands?

Romans 3:23 – seems like such an understatement.
I knew I was not perfect but now I know exactly what Paul meant!
Lord how on earth can I move forward from here?
I feel so ashamed and condemned – and now it’s life itself I fear.

But Lord I need to know, will my history destroy my destiny?
Nope. Because You new me and formed me before time began.
Despite my mistakes and faults You are still there holding my hand.
“Christ in me the hope of glory” is what I shall build my life upon,
A new hopeful freedom it brings and all the shame has now gone.

Thank you Lord.

“There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus”. Romans 8:1
