Light of the World

Friday, August 3, 2012

Have you ever spoken to someone who's past looms so big in their lives that they can't see any reason to ask for forgiveness, much less expect it? Unforgiveness...even of ourselves traps us in a dark and lonely place. Because without forgiveness it's impossible for the light of God's love to penetrate our hearts and minds.
I read an inscription once that said the reason the windshield is so much bigger than the rear view mirror is because our focus should be on the road ahead. It's not that we can always forget about our past or even should. But we should take our lessons from it and move ahead. If our focus is always on what's behind us we miss some wonderful moments in the present and the hint of beautiful things to come.
