Looking Back Too Often
When we look back at the past too often we end up not living today.
God means for us to live in the here and now, not live with our eyes
cast back into previous times. We praise God more fully when we relish
the moments of the present. We praise God more fully when we gaze off
into the future and dream of new ways we can make things today so things
will be better tomorrow. When we constantly look back and yearn to
return to yesteryear, we are cheating ourselves and cheating God out of
the best time of our life…the best time of our life being this moment.
This moment can be the best moment if we determine to make this moment
the best moment for God and for His glory. We do not have to make this
day the best day of our life. We cannot, in fact, make this day the best
day of our life. We can however, in the next few seconds, make the next
few seconds the best few seconds we have ever lived. Even at the very
end of our journey, when nearly all of what we have said, thought, done,
believed, hoped for, dreamed about, and prayed about is behind us, our
most glorious moment is just ahead as we step over into eternity. When
we realize we can all be headed toward God's eternity of unbounded love,
we do not want the past…we want, at our last moment, only eternal new
moments full of glory and full of grace.
