It’s easy to compare ourselves to our past. To see how much we have grown, and progressed. It’s not easy, though, to move on from the past whether it’s negative or positive. What do I mean? Sometimes we can look back on how bad life was and can’t move on. Sometimes we can also look back on how great life was and can’t move on. Here’s an example: when I was in middle school I used to workout a lot–about 4 times a week. When I got into high school I would barely workout, maybe just once every 2 weeks. I felt like I had no time, more responsibilities and couldn’t achieve as much as I did before, but I would really try my best. We all should. From that I started to realize that God just wants the best in us. Life doesn’t get easier, it gets harder. We need to plan our day and try to make time in our day. I also learned that our best days are ahead of us. In Isaiah 41:10 it says, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” God is with us, let’s start looking into his eyes so that he can guide us into the life destined for us and not get stuck looking back. Remember God is with you through the whole process; with him your best days are ahead of you!
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. Colossians 3:23
