You have no eyes in the back of your head – on purpose. God decided that a long time ago.
Why do I continually look back with regret as if I have eyes in the back of my head?
Your eyes are in the front of your head because we are to look forward believing that God has a hope and plan for you.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Yes, I need to learn from my mistakes, but I don’t need to stay there wallowing in them. Do I believe God can turn our mistakes around and make them better than if they hadn’t happened? Do I really? I am not sure I do.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
Are my mistakes bigger than God? Hmm…maybe…in my thoughts…when I am alone.
God, help me to see you as bigger than anything I have done. Help me to not be like Lot’s wife and look to the past with a wrong fascination. It destroys me.
“But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.” Genesis 19:26
Lord, help me to be the salt of the earth, not a pillar. A salt shaker will do just fine.
Thank you for sharing this. I needed it. Jeremiah 29:11 is a verse that I need to memorize.
Craig, thank you..Its taken me a little over 40 years but I think I finally found my voice. Not talent wise or singing, but my own frequency. I think I took it for granted and at times made a lot of mistakes trying to “find” my own sound, when it was there all along…
Sean, thanks! By the way I think you have a great sound.
Craig, You’re a great teacher; very down-to-earth, easy to understand. Thank you for sharing the wisdom you’ve learned from HIM and those truths that you’re still learning! The fact that you’re transparent enough to share these truths with HIS body, here on earth, is very admirable! Love, “Us Carmacks”
Thanks very much! You are very generous!
Good word. I will stop trying to make holes in the back of my head for eyes that are unhealthy. God made Adam’s mistake better than if it hadn’t happened by now living in us rather than walking along side Adam as He did in the garden. I must believe He can do the same for my imperfections. What an awesome God we serve. Good sense of humor you have!
