What's Past Is History -- The Future Awaits!

"Leave the broken, irreversible past in God's hands,
 and step out into the invincible future with Him."
~~ Oswald Chambers

To read Oswald Chambers is to step into the sacred place of another soul.  Chambers definitely wrote from his heart, and in so doing as a reader we are privileged to "hear" what another individual felt, experienced, and believed in a beautiful writing form.

is now history, and the events of 2011, both personal and global, are not irreversible.  There is nothing you nor I can do to change what has happened in our lives.  As Chambers says above, they are "in God's hands."  In other words, we must move on.  To cling to these irreversible events will only root us in bitterness and anger, and neither is a positive catalyst for tomorrow.

A new year has begun!  2012 now stands before us and it is time for us to step out and take chances, take risks, try new things, forget the ugliness and tears of the past.  We've turned the last page on the calendar of 2011, and the slate for 2012 is waiting for you to begin the next chapter.

In the word cloud to the right are the months of the year as well as a number of descriptive words such as beginning, resolutions, joy, fresh start and others.  Isn't it time you found descriptive words to speak to your heart about what you're going to do with this new year, the next 12 months, the only 2012 that will come along in your lifetime?  Do you want to write a book?  Are you feeling a nudge to begin afresh on that college education you put aside to be a full time mom?  What about volunteering and giving back to the community?  Perhaps something else that you've always thought you could but never tried.

Yes, the past is gone from us but opportunities await.  With God beside you, no journey is too tiring, too difficult, too challenging -- actually with Him beside you, the journey is invincible!
