You can't do anything about your past.

You can't do anything about your past. You can, however, do everything about your future. One of our friends and LIFE group members challenged Lisa with this thought a few weeks back. She put it this way. You have to live life through your windshield and not your rear view mirror. Perhaps that's what Isaiah had in mind when he wrote these words:

18 "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. 19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV

I believe God has great plans for you and me. They are limited only by our willingness to follow His lead. We serve a God who is ridiculously powerful, stupendously loving and maddeningly illogical (according to our understanding). Don't limit what He wants to do with your tomorrows because you refuse to leave yesterday behind. Life lived through the windshield holds limitless promises for those who will surrender the rear view mirror. Live dangerously in the arms of God!
