I refuse to keep looking back at those things that are behind me. The year is almost at an end. Do we have regrets? Absolutely. Have we messed up? Royally. Have we said and done hurtful things about and to others? Yes! Did we continue to sin and fall short of the glory of God? Too many times to count. Did we miss God and hook up with the wrong people? Countless times. But God! We made it through. We will not live in regret. We will not continue to condemn ourselves. The goal for us is the kingdom of heaven. What do we do between now and the return of Jesus Christ? Preach that the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Keep pressing in the presence of God. Look back right now, one more time, just to say goodbye to the things that are behind you. We’re moving forward in the things of God and the things and people He has for us. Believe it. Something and someone new is on the horizon. Dr.J.
