' Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord , my rock and my redeemer.' - Psalms 19:14
Devotional:Purpose thrives on believing what’s possible, on dreaming up what can be, and by working passionately in the here and now.
Nowhere in that equation is there room for what was, what didn’t work, and what could have been.
Distraction #5: Our Past.
It was during my study of Joseph that I realized where we begin has no bearing on how far we can go. Yet, so many of us remain tied to the mistakes and pains of our past.
God wants your attention in the present. He wants you to “look straight ahead” because what He has for you is not behind you, but in front. History, especially personal history, has its role to play in our journeys. But often, we try to live in a place we should only visit.
Learn from your past and then keep going. That isn’t your home any longer.
What’s one action you can take today that will prove you are moving past your past?
