Lord of My Mistakes

Based on Phil. 3:13-14, Phil. 4:6-8, Rev. 12:10, Eph. 6:13-14, 16

From 2014


I made confession to the Lord, My sin I did not hide

I repented, turned to Jesus and in Him I now abide

But the tempter stands to haunt me with the wages of my sin

From consequences of my past and guilt I feel within

Lord, give me faith to gaze at You and free me from the lies that chain my mind

Help me trust You for the mess I left behind

You are the Sovereign of my past and Lord of my mistakes.


I will ignore the tempter’s mocking and resist his fierce attack

For Jesus washed away my sin and I will not look back

Standing with my shield of faith, girded with the truth

A mind at peace, stayed on Him, is my daily proof.

My ever living Intercessor, the Savior and Defender of my soul

Help me trust You for the mess I left behind

You are the Sovereign of my past and Lord of my mistakes.


Forgetting what now lies behind and reaching toward the prize

Seeing the story of my life through Your kingdom building eyes

My past does not confound, upset or thwart what You can do

As long as my eyes stay off me and look only to You

Help me press on hard to know You more and follow You no matter what the cost

Help me trust You for the mess I left behind

You are the Sovereign of my past and Lord of my mistakes.


Beauty from the ashes and sorrow turned to gold

Mourning into dancing is how this will unfold

My life left in Your hands becomes a glorious tapestry

Obedience brings great blessing as You have Your way in me

The peace that passes understanding guards not just my heart but guards my mind

As I trust You for the mess I left behind

You are the Sovereign of my past and Lord of my mistakes.
