We each have a past. Some are so weighted that it seems impossible to move beyond the experience. Opposite are those former experiences that serve as a positive lift toward our futures. In both cases, we cannot rest on what has happened.
The same principle is true when the past belongs to a group, a community, and even a country. History, whether negative or positive cannot be change. It can be told from various vantage points, but the raw facts remain the same. Juxtapose this with the future. For instance, the remainder of today is yet to be determined, which gives each of us a chance to participate in and influence a positive outcome. And our past should certainly influence what we do next.
Let’s take the good and the bad just as it was – let’s not hide the ugly scars that remind us of past mistakes. Neither should we stare too long at the trophies of victory. Move on, move forward, move upward towards an even greater existence as an individual entity, and collectively as a country. In the end, we should use all that is available, including our past to reach for God’s best for our lives.
Sure, you know where you have been. But, God knows where you are going. Too often we find ourselves in despair over where we are in life. In truth, we lose momentum for our future when we settled for our current circumstances. Only God knows what exists beyond our present situation, health condition, or relationships, so why sabotage your future with a negative outlook? Raise your head and accept that God loves you enough, and you should love yourself enough to fight through your feelings of doubt. Tomorrow is an amazingly unknown opportunity. Embrace this unknown with optimism.
