You may have heard the saying, the past is supposed to be a signpost, not a tethering post. It’s easy to become tied to memories of the good old days instead of using our experience to find direction for the road ahead. We are all susceptible to the paralyzing effects of nostalgia – a longing for what used to be.
Though I know not what awaits me
What the future has in store
Yet I know that God is faithful
For I’ve proved Him oft before.
God’s guidance in the past gives courage for the future.
