The road behind is better than the road ahead

blessings behindWe are taught to never look back, but sometimes we NEED to look back.

Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life — Psalm 23:6 NIV. There are times when all we see ahead are difficulties and trials. We forget how God has blessed us in the past.

Take a look in your rear view mirror. You’ll be surprised how God has changed the landscape.

  1. this is completely true. so how I am feeling at this moment. I will look back a bit and see how He has changed the Landscape. Bless you

  2. By looking in the rearview mirror and seeing God’s hand, it allows us to see a much better picture ahead of us that is filled with hope, joy and contentment.

  3. Trying to get that 360 degree view especially the one where Christ is right next to us is the view the enemy is trying to block. Your post helps us to see more clearly.

  4. This is true. The past is a great point of reference and way of seeing God’s blessings (that perhaps we missed!) in hindsight. I’m glad I haven’t always gotten what I’ve wanted. God bless.

  5. so very true, when I myself look back I found God was present all along, but now, I look forward to pasture that is so green with the presents of God’s Love

  6. Check out this passage:

    Blessed is the man whose strength is in You,
    Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.
    As they pass through the Valley of Baca,
    They make it a spring;
    The rain also covers it with pools.
    They go from strength to strength;
    Each one appears before God in Zion.
    (Psalm 84.5–7).

  7. Wow great truths that’s further reinforced by your pictures; love the juxtaposition
