I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past & looking forward to what lies ahead.
I know the above verse from Philippians go against everything I said in Wednesday’s blog post in Looking Forward or Back? as I said:
Looking forward isn’t just about the future, it’s also about the past!
However, not that I’m now trying to get out of it, but when I said the future was also about the past, I wasn’t meaning that we should continue to look backwards, I simply meant that in order to look forward we must use what has happened in the past to help us in the future.
The above bible verse, does back this up as it tells us to forget the past. i.e. don’t live in the past, resting on past successes or despairing over failures, move on with your life and live for what is to come.
No matter what lies ahead for us, God will be there with us, and will give us the energy and the guidance to continue to move forward.
