Thoughts of the Past, to Become Actions of the Future!

Many people, through the years have spoken great words.  Words that were caught by some minds as being worthy of our remembering.  I want to give you a few here for you to ponder and be enriched by.

“There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful than that of a continual conversation with God.”“““““Brother Lawrence

“Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?”“““““Corrie Ten Boom

“P.U.S.H. = Pray Until Something Happens”“““““Anonymous

“You can never do a kindness too soon because you never know how soon it will be too late.”““““`Ralph W. Emerson

“The best way to know a man is to watch him when he is angry.” “““““Hebrew Proverb

“When your friends begin to flatter you on how young you look it’s a sure sign you’re growing old.”“““““Mark Twain

“No one is wrong all the time, even a stopped clock is right twice a day.” ““““`Anonymous

“The weak can never forgive.  Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” ““““`Mahatma Gandhi

“We forgive to the extent that we love.”  ““““`Francois De La Rochefoucauld

“It is a mistake to be always turning back to recover the past.  The law for Christianity living is not backward, but forward; not for experiences that lie behind, but for doing the will of God, which is always ahead and beckoning us to follow.  Leave the things that are behind, and reach forward to those that are before, for on each new height to which we attain, there are the appropriate joys that befit the new experience.  Don’t fret because life’s joys are fled.  There are more in front.  Look up, press forward!  The best is yet to be.” ““““F. B. Meyer

F. B. Meyer’s point here is greatly to be taken.  It was a long time for me before I could get past ‘turning back to recover’.  ‘Looking ahead’ was always so difficult and energy sapping.  But when you can get over that “hump”, you find the joys that were “assigned” to you are still there and you will have time to enjoy them.  There really is ‘more up front’.

Until next time…….
