Look Back to See Ahead (#BiblicalInspiration #SalvationSunday)


In my past were dark troublesome days. But, God always had a purpose.

I cannot understand His ways. Though I can look back at footprints in the sand and see, through all the times I fell, He was holding my hand.

Through violations, suicidal ideation, and abuse. Even when I didn’t know to pray – God sent His Spirit to loose the pain of my suffering. He gave me a desire to know Him, the One from Whom all life begins.

I look back over what I’ve written in those early years. I feel those hurts. I see God was with me. There are tears – not of sadness, but of gratitude and love toward my Father in Heaven, my Savior and Lord above.

You see, it doesn’t matter what you have or what you’re going through – look back to see ahead and know God was and always will be with you.

Be encouraged.
