Paws and Ponder
Isaiah 43:18-19 Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
I heard the rummaging coming from the kitchen, looked at the clock and thought , "oh no, 4am, I know that sound, UGH!!" I got up, looked out... yup there she was in the trash! This sweet, 9 month, black lab puppy loves the trash. I have to lock it up at night or I get to wake up to a huge mess. As I was cleaning I was left thinking how many of us love to dig in the trash of our past. Sometimes we just lay in it or next to it. It's messy, smelly and dirty but it's ours. We all have a past...some more trashy then others but not one of us without one. I was reminded of the above verse. The enemy loves to play with our mind and spirit, all he has is our pasts. He doesn't have our future. Don't waste time looking behind you; YOU aren't going that way! Look foward and allow God to make a new path. Give Him your future and He will make the way New!!
