Inspirational Song For Today: That Was Then, This is Now

Have you ever felt that you are “too far gone” and don’t even want to try? Well, everyday is a new day… and the beginning of a new path is the first step. So “say goodbye to the old you now” and start on your new journey to a new you as you “put the past in the past” and walk into your future with Him! That was then… this is now! Remember, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us! (Philippians 4:13)

“That Was Then, This is Now” by Josh Wilson

We used to hide from the Light.
We made friends with the night.
We were headed the wrong way on a one way track
going nowhere fast.
We got used to the dark.
Thought this is who we are
and we figured that we were just too far gone…
but we were wrong.

Cause love came runnin’ like a river
and we got washed in the water.
Then he said you’re forgiven
your sins are gone!

That was then, this is now!
You’re bought by the blood,
saved by the Son the saints all sing about.
That was lost, this is found!
It’s time to say goodbye to the old you now!
So go ahead and put the past in the past!
Box it up like an old photograph!
You don’t have to go back…
cause that was then and this is now!

We’ve been remade by grace!
We’ve all got new names.
Nothing we do could ever change
what he did that day.

When love came runnin’ like a river
and we got washed in the water.
Then he said you’re forgiven
and you belong.

That was then, this is now!
You’re bought by the blood,
saved by the Son the saints all sing about.

That was lost, this is found!
It’s time to say goodbye to the old you now.
So go ahead and put the past in the past.
Box it up like an old photograph.
You don’t have to go back…
cause that was then.

If we turn and confess every unrighteousness…
He is faithful and just to forgive.
Oh, so turn and confess every wrong and regret
and see what it means to live.

That was then, this is now!
You’re bought by the blood,
saved by the Son the saints all sing about!
That was lost, this is found!
It’s time to say goodbye to the old you now!

  1. This was so evocative. Abuse victims do get used to the dark. We think, after awhile, darkness is all we deserve — is who we “are”. But that’s just one of Satan’s lies to us…lies from which Jesus sets us free.

    • Amen!! And even when we are out of the darkness of abuse, the many wounds of our past still need to be healed because Satan knows just what “buttons” to push to pull us back into that darkness of negative thinking. We need to cast down the darkness and negativity and rejoice in being a new creation in Christ. That was then… this is now. Praise God for new beginnings!!
      Thanks for your support Anna and God bless you, my sister!!

  2. For Christians the past is just one faithful prayer away from being gone. Of course, the scares still need mending, and that can take some time, but the process begins with that first step and prayer!
