12 days of Christmas day 11

Forgiveness Focuses Forward
Often times when we look back at the end of the year, we look at regrets, resolutions we didn’t follow through with, accomplishments not completed. But, sin is not one of the things we should look back on with feelings of failure. If we have truly confessed our sins to God and asked forgiveness, we simply need to FOCUS FORWARD toward the goal of ever pleasing our Lord.

Hindsight Day 11
"Life has to be lived forwards but it can only be understood backwards."
- Søren Kierkegaard

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge him,
And he will make your paths straight."

Proverbs 3:5-6

"Is not wisdom found among the aged? Does not long life bring understanding?"
Job 12:12

If it was possible to walk backwards through our lives, we would be able to erase so many doubts and questions from our pathway. But, this would also cause us to miss out on the moments when we needed to desperately trust in the Lord; clinging to His promises for guidance and hope.
