Look back to see ahead?!?!?! What kind of directions are those? But, if we pause to look back at the many ways God has been with us in life, even when we did not see him at the time, it causes us to take heart. We begin to realize more and more that Jesus is with us every step of the way. So, if we can see him in the past, it makes him easier to identify in the present and in the future. Much like when you tell someone about a person that they believe they haven’t met. They usually go to such and such a place. They are about 6 feet tall. They have brown hair. “Oh, yeah,” the person replies, “I have seen them many times”. So, the next time they see that person they will know who it is. So, look back to see ahead!
Christ is the one who journey’s with us. He is with us and it is Christ who transforms our weakness and doubts and sufferings into strength, belief, and hope. He does this over and over again. It is an amazing love that will not let us go. Listen to this song by the Sidewalk Prophets–“You Love me Anyway”. Take all your fears and doubts and bring them to Christ knowing that he loves you anyway and gives you his love and grace always!
