One of the scariest things about the future is that by moving forward, you are leaving something behind, and although God is there to hold your hand and guide you, this journey can be difficult. But even the Jonas Brothers knew that holding onto the past only hinders one’s ability to see the future..

“..Come on Lewis, keep moving forward

Hold your head up high

There’s no time for looking down

You will not believe where we’re going now

Here we go, let me remind you

Look ahead, the past is behind you”

God is constantly thinking about our futures, and every step we take, the good and the bad, bring us closer to the future he intended for us. There’s no time to look down and get caught up in the past, so much good is coming our way. Even when we may be in a rut and feel like there couldn’t possibly be a good ending to our story, be patient. God is actively working in your life to bring you the wonderful life you deserve, the future is just hard to see sometimes. Jeremiah 29:11 states, “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 I future.” God has a plan, and the more we get wrapped up in the small things of everyday we no longer see the big picture, and we may never know for sure just what God has in store, but he will always be there to guide us along the way. The future is not an intimidating void we sometimes make it out to be, the future is hope, opportunities, and the comfort that God’s plan is working in our lives everyday
