Don't look back!
Scripture: But Lot’s wife looked back and turned into a pillar of salt. Genesis 19:26
Anytime you’re making plans for the future, it’s easy to look back on all the things that have gone wrong along the way. Maybe you made a foolish choice when trying to find the perfect mate, or maybe you allowed your finances to end up in the dumpster after using one too many credit cards. But all of that is in the PAST. It is up to us to start looking forward.
God allows us to make mistakes so that we can learn, but He also gives us the wisdom to know when to move on and not look back. It’s hard for some folks to do, which is why some people seem to always be reliving the past. They wallow in it, swim in it, eat with it, sleep with it and put it on as an overcoat every single day. Don’t be one of those people! If you made a mistake in your life, ask God to forgive you. If the mistake harmed another person, ask THEM to forgive you as well. Once you’ve asked for God’s forgiveness, don’t you DARE go back there again. You’re forgiven, your slate is clean.
Every day is another chance to get it right.
