"Put your past behind you" - Lion King movie.
"When Satan reminds you of your past, you remind him of his future"- Carmen - Christian singer.
I'm getting older. I forget things. My wallet, keys, Bible. I've had to replace certain items including my Study Bible, Yankee Hater Hat etc. I don't like to forget or misplace things. I don't like to admit the mistakes I make - but I still make them. This month of May there are several milestones in my own life:
B. Birthday of my Daughter
C. My Mother's Birthday
D. Mother's Day.
And of course getting ready for summer and getting ready to start my 5th year here in NC. (IT will be 4 this summer)
As I celebrate these milestones I look back at the things I've done. I'm reminded of the silly mistakes I've made along the way. I thank God for His grace as I press on toward the prize for which Christ has called me (Philippians 3:12). Are you pressing on?
Even as I partake communion I'm reminded in 1 Corinthians 11 to "Do This in Remembrace of Me" - Prayerfully may all things I do be in Remembrance of the One who Created me!
"One of the best ways to persuade others is by listening to them"- Dean Rusk.
