Looking Forward

Previously I wrote about looking back and how we can get gaught up in dwelling in the past and letting it affect our today. Looking forward can have the same effect. The 'when I statements' or 'when we ...' can be just as debillatating as the 'if only I hadn't' or 'if only I had'.

The fact is we can't change the past and we are not guaranteed the future, so we must enjoy what we have, which is today. It's okay to plan for our futures as long as we remember it is 'God willing' that we'll even get there. Don't rob today by planning for tomorrow, leave your future in God's hands, He has a good plan for us.

Jeremiah 29:11 New International Version

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Every day you will have a choice for that day, sometimes many choices, start your day right and listen to God's choices for your day. Through listening to His Holy Spirit we can follow His guidance for your day and, no matter what challenges your day brings, God will get you through it, with peace, with joy and with love. God wants you to enjoy your life living in the now.

Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version

5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart

and lean not on your own understanding;

6 in all your ways submit to him,

and he will make your paths straight.
