Looking backward doesn’t help, and dwelling on the past hinders forward progress. Sure, you don’t want to repeat the same mistakes. What’s your dream? Do you have a plan? Can you visualize the steps to make it happen? Hopefully, the following will help.
Grab hold of your dream with both hands. Grip it with all your might, and don’t let go. The grip is your reinforcement of keeping your eyes on the destination. The road may seem blurry at times. The location may seem too far to reach. You may even wonder about the path. However, a few adjustments will bring you back to the main road.
When you get off course, you will discover the dependable ones in your life. True friends will talk straight with you about your actions while encouraging you. They will challenge you to a course correction. An indispensable friend is not selfish and is willing to help. They even go out of their way to assist you. The Bible reminds us, “There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother” (Proverbs 18:24 KJV).
When you can’t count on anybody else, hopefully, you know Jesus is always there. Jesus has never led me wrong. He’s always ready to help me in the right way.
Something else became clear to me. Jesus wants me to do my part. I know He can do it all for me, but if He does, I’ll miss some important life lessons, the kind you only learn by doing.
Thank goodness for the initiative to start and all the help along the way to complete the tasks.
