QUOTE OF THE DAY: THE TRAUMA OF YESTERDAY CAN SAP THE STRENGTH OF TODAY
ANCHOR TEXT: “Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing”

Philippians 3:13.
Yesterday is gone forever, but today is a reality that must be maximised and get the best out of.  Today is too precious, so you must refuse yesterday’s shortcomings or grief steal the present moment to build memories. 
God’s word to us is; do not look back. Just like Apostle Paul declared, we must forget what lies behind and strain forward to what is available now and much more what lies ahead.  Though, there is natural tendency in man to look back but in such instances, encourage yourself to learn only from the mistakes and shortcomings but never dwell there; avoid regrets.
 Frederick Buechner said; ‘it is mainly for some clue to where I am going that I search through where I have been; for some hint as to whom becoming or failing to become that I delve into what used to be’. If you must delve into what used to be, it must be for progress.The only reason you are permitted to look back is for advancement and positive purpose.
 Anything outside of that is not biblically acceptable.  Do not look back in a way that will debar your moving forward or bring back the pain of yester years. Do not be like Lot’s wife who looked back after she, her husband and children had left their home as fire and brimstone rain down on Sodom and Gomorrah. 
That singular act was Lot wife’s end; she became a pillar of salt.
