“You have made some mistakes, and you may not be where you want to be, but that has nothing to do with your future.” Zig Ziglar
More than a few people struggle with the mistakes of the past. Guilt makes us wish we could return to the past and make corrections. Often times we regret not starting earlier to do what we know should have been done.
The challenge is overcoming the desire to live in the past or allowing the mistakes of the past to dictate our direction.
We cannot go back and live in the past. We cannot change it. We can only learn from it and use it to make decisions that determine a different future.
Nothing from the past or our present circumstances has anything to do with the future. The future is determined by the choices we make now to shape tomorrow.
If we make decisions built on a spiritual foundation, the direction of tomorrow is one that assures an eternal destination prepared for those who make the proper choices in the present.
