Looking Forward

Over the weekend, here in the States, we had our time change.  Spring forward, all clocks had to get moved up one hour.  I am one of those annoying people who for the next two days says comments about if it was the previous time I would be doing this or that.  It's hard to adjust to the new time because your body and your mind are still stuck in the last time zone. 

It's so easy to get stuck in the past.  Memories are strong and can control how we think about things.  I think it is healthy to remember the past but unhealthy to allow our past to negatively influence our present.  People love New Years Day because it feels like a fresh start.  But we can have a fresh start any day of the year.  It just takes a conscious decision to leave the negative behind and focus on the future. 

Isaiah 43:19 says, "Behold I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive {and} know it {and} will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert."

God wants to do a NEW thing in our life today!  Let's stop looking back and look forward to what He has in store for us!!


  1. The time shift always does me in as well, so I understand completely. Thank you for the "timely" reminder! :-)

    Have a Blessed Day!

  2. Wow! You and I are on the same wave length lately. Yesterday you posted the scripture in Zephaniah that I love. And today it's my favorite from Isaiah. You should read that passage in The Message, if you get a chance. Great scripture! I love the new things that God is doing. Amen!


I LOVE every single Comment! Thank you!
