God can take events of the past and weave them so skillfully into a new plan for us that not only do we find there is a future for us after all, but it is as if there have been no wasted years.
CHRIST BEHIND ME
There He walks in your past. He walks in all the dark rooms you pretend are closed, that He may bring light. Invite Him into your past. Experience His forgiveness, His acceptance of you. Offer especially all that you are ashamed of... all that you wish to forget... all that still pains and hurts you... all the hurt you have caused others. Walk there in the places you are afraid of, knowing that He walks with you and will lead you on!
'I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, to give you a future and a hope.'
