In order to move on, you must look ahead. A big part of moving on is ceasing yourself from looking back. Taking such a glance can result in some painful consequences. How can an individual possibly move on if he or she is still caught up in history? If you take a look at what’s behind you…it’s familiar and you’re used to everything in the past. However, if you’re head is turned 180 degrees for such a long time….you’re going to miss what’s up ahead. It would be a waste of time to dwell in the past when there are many great things up ahead.
I don’t see myself in the crowd that I was in before. I know what it’s like. But, God has opened up His plans for me. If I ever stoop back into how I was living in the past, I could be missing all that is ahead. Why would I miss out on the great things ahead of me?
