Philippians 3:14 esv
Don’t get caught up in the past. Thinking about the Super Bowl the losing team always gives a similar response after the game. They look back and review what they could have did and what they should have did. To a certain extent that’s fine. For a while it is necessary to reflect on the past. This is how improvements are made in the future. But at some point it's time to move forward. Living in the past will get you nowhere. When we don’t protect our minds it gets easy to live in the past.
Don’t live in what already happened. There’s nothing there for you. Why waste time wallowing in guilt when God has already forgiven you for your sins? Why sit and think about how people have wronged you when you can’t change anything about it now? Why live life stressed out when through Christ you can live a productive, joyful, and healthy life. Don’t waste time looking back. You will stumble, trip, and miss out on your destiny. Turn around and look forward. That’s where your success is. There is always a next season in your life. Keep pressing.
