About this time of year, we may spend lots of time living in the past, regretting things we’ve done or not done during the past year. Sometimes, it seems like a vacuum is trying to suck us back into the past and prevent us from moving on.

 We replay scenes over again in our minds, as if that will somehow erase them. Others of us replay happy scenes from the past, so that we do not have to face the present, which may be more painful. Either way, it is a waste of time and energy, because we can never go back.

I heard a preacher say that God designed us to live in 24-hour packets of time. Every day is supposed to be a fresh start. That is encouraging, because each day we get to try again.

The beginning of a new year gives another reason to try again. For this to happen, we have to say good bye to 2010 and put our hopes, prayers and efforts toward the new year of 2011. At first, this may seem impossible. We may feel that we have messed up so much that it cannot be fixed, but this is not true.

Sir William Oursler said, “Shut out all of your past except that which will help you weather your tomorrows.”

Keep in mind verses from Isaiah. The first is Isaiah 43:18-19: “Forget what happened before. Do not think about the past. Look at the new thing I am going to do. It is already happening.” The second verse is Isaiah 65:17. “All the earlier troubles, chaos and pain are things of the past, to be forgotten. Look ahead with joy. Anticipate what I am creating.”

The Calhoun Chronicle staff wishes you a blessed New Year!
