It’s easy to look back and want what you already had, and long for the life the way it once was. But if you are not careful, you will lose your motivation to move forward into the next season of your life, and start your new beginning. With every end of a season, there is of course, a start of a new one.
Don’t long for “the good ol’ days. This is not wise. Ecclesiastes 7:10
It can be helpful and wise to look back at the past and try and learn from your mistakes or accomplishments. There is even wisdom in reflection. But sulking in nostalgia for what you once had, and feeling that life must be that way in order for you to be happy is not wise. This will not help you move forward in your life, and God wants you to press ahead into a bright future.
If you have a relationship with God; regardless of what you have to endure in this life, you can not only hope for a bright future on earth, but look forward to Eternity with God.
So, here’s my challenge to you today:
There is something God has told you to do, and you have not done it yet. There is a talent He wants you to develop. Or maybe a book He wants you to write. You know what it is. Take those next steps forward. Even if it will take a lot of time, it will be worth it in the end. Start your journey today.
It’s time for your new beginning.
God bless you,
