“If they had been thinking about the country they had left, they could have gone back.
But they were waiting for a better country– a heavenly country. So God is not ashamed to be called their God, because he has prepared a city for them.” – Hebrews 11:15-16
If we give ourselves the option to go ‘back to the way things were’ then that is what we’ll be thinking about.
If I expend energy looking back, what will I have left to get me to where I’m going?
