I saw this picture randomly online and really loved it because of the truth it contains. I never thought about it like this but it is so spot on. Let it be a great reminder about where our thoughts can lead us and how to keep focused on the present.
It’s a simple reminder.
1. Looking at the past will only make you depressed
Isaiah 43 (MSG)
18-19 “Forget about what’s happened;
don’t keep going over old history.
Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new.
It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it?”
2. Looking into the future will only make you anxious
Matthew 6:34 (MSG)
34 “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.”
3. Looking at the present will keep you at peace
Psalm 118 (NIV)
24 “This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it”
