How to Get Past the Pain of the Past
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
A traveler was driving down old Route 66, the very first major highway that could take you from Chicago to the West Coast of the U.S. He stopped at one of those little tourist trap towns along the way, and started talking to one of the workers at a souvenir shop.
“You know,” the worker said, “this town is very famous.”
The man looked around at the desolate ghost town around him and said, “Really? What makes this place so famous?”
The worker looked at him and said, “Well, you can start from right here and go anywhere you want!”
Now, that's true about today. You can start right where you are at this very moment and go anywhere God takes you. Each day is the beginning of a brand new day when you put your path into God’s hands.
There are many people who choose to retreat and regress into the pain of yesterday because they’re controlled by their fear instead of by God’s guidance. But when we trust God with our future, we can be sure He’ll move us onward and upward in living for His glory!
MOVE ONWARD AND UPWARD WITH GOD NOT BY LIVING IN PAST PAIN, BUT BY PLACING YOUR FUTURE IN HIS HANDS!
