New Year’s Eve 2010: Looking Forward & Looking Back

Happy 2011,

As I’m working on my new website on this final day of 2010, I’m reminded of how much I love to look forward and backward. Looking back at 2010, I can see many of God’s blessings. One of my prayers in 2010 was, “Lord, helpful not to be a forgetful follower.”

    Maybe one of the reasons why God told the Israelites to make an altar at those places where He moved in mighty ways was that they would always remember His love and faithfulness.

    The challenge of the spiritual life is to both look forward in faith, to look backward with thanksgiving, and to stay in the present always mindful that God knows the beginning, middle and end of it all.
