I know there is a saying that states something like: you can’t look forward while looking in your rear view mirror. this may very well be true, and I obviously understand the concept, but I’m also a firm believer in looking back to see how far God’s brought you! this concept holds true in a couple situations. 1) when you’re in a difficult season, looking back and recounting what He has done for you in the past, certainly can give you hope in your current state. 2) when you can glance back into a time when you were a different version of yourself. it is quite astounding when you realize the growth from where you aren’t anymore!
we may not always know what’s going on, but He does!
Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” (John 13:7 NIV)
