Don’t Go Backwards!

Don't Look Backwards2

When you go backwards, you relinquish your powers. How?. . . you ask, I will tell you. When you go backwards, you go back to familiarity. There are no new challenges, just the same challenges from before. When you go forward, you are in unfamiliar territory, with new challenges. When you go backwards, you tell the same old unsatisfied stories. When you move forward, the stories are new and exciting.

When you go backwards, everything about you reveals how you surrendered your powers. When you push forward, everything about you reveals how you are maximizing your powers. Looking ahead pushes you to new levels and possibilities. Looking back brings up bad memories, feelings, or mistakes. The only good thing about looking backwards is learning not to bring it into the future. 

Always continue to spiritually grow and improve. Show people the “new” you. Don’t go backwards to the “old” you, where people take all you have to give and you have nothing left for yourself. Don’t go backwards to the person that everyone wants you to be. Step into the future, use your powers, and be the person that God intended you to be.
