    Don't Look Back...

    Don't Look Back...

    What is it about our nature...that morbid curiosity...that makes us look back at things that clearly are not pleasant? Why do we stop, gawk, dwell and sometimes live there?

    There is even a story in the Bible where God warns us about 'looking back' and the unpleasant consequence of doing so.

    15 With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, “Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished.” 16 When he hesitated, the men grasped his hand and the hands of his wife and of his two daughters and led them safely out of the city, for the LORD was merciful to them. 17 As soon as they had brought them out, one of them said, “Flee for your lives! Don’t look back, and don’t stop anywhere in the plain! Flee to the mountains or you will be swept away!” Genesis 19:15-17

    24 Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land. 26 But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. Genesis 19:24-26

    'Pillar of salt', call it what you will, but simply put, she no longer lived.

    Looking back robs us of life...dwelling on what was, leaves no room for living a purposeful life spent benefiting family and friends; nor chasing after the future that He has in store for us.

    Close that chapter, toss that book into the fire, put an end to what was and don't, 'no never', look back again. Be a pillar of Godliness, not salt.

    The reason that most people fail in recovery numerous times is that they attempt to keep the same friends.
    Try to surround yourself with people that will appreciate you for who you are now.
