When did I grow so old

Just yesterday I was young

Not always doing what I was told

Life’s race had just begun

But now I am in a later season

The pace not near as fast

Perhaps I have more reason

Each day closer than the last

Looking back with mixed emotions

Would I make the same mistakes again

Not just going through the motions

But making necessary amends

To really know what is true

And finally be set free

To see exactly what I need to do

I am driven ever to my knees

For so long a time I did not realize

The depth of my sinfulness and pride

Then The Holy Spirit opened up my eyes

Christ Jesus suffered and died!

To reconcile me to His glorious throne

Love greater than any ever known

His righteousness now my very own

Unending mercy and grace…

leading me to my eternal home!

“Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.”

John 3:4-5 ESV
