Looking Back…

Looking back sucks…literally.
It sucks the life out of you…
It sucks the possibilities for new memories and relationships to be built.
It sucks the process of healing from your heart and mind…
Looking back sucks the joy that comes from living in the moment…
LooKing back creates walls and hard spots on a heart that used to be so pliable…
Looking back causes us to look at the negative in a magnified state…
It makes being prideful and putting a spotlight on the plank in someone else’s eye so much easier than choosing grace…
The only reason there is to look back is to reflect…reflect on how far you have come and how God’s grace has changed your character and outlook…your entire being.
Look back with purpose and your future in full view…not with regret and a hardened heart.

    This is so true! I love this because looking back also steals my time. It causes me to spend all this time meditating on should of, could of and would of. I know God wants my focus fto be on future not on my past.
