What are your thoughts as you look back over the last year?
Was it a year of heartache and loss, tragedy and sorrow?
Or happiness and joy, success and achievement?
Do you close the book on this year with regret, or with relief?
No matter what your answer is, I hope you will pause and prayerfully ask yourself tow important questions: First, how do you think God looks on this past year in your life? Did it bring you closer to Him?
Second, what lessons will you take from this year into the next? What did God teach you?
Don't be bound by the past and its failure. But don't forget its lessons either.
" But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. " Philippians 3:13-14
