A quick glance be­hind…

If you feel that you have made mis­takes, taken wrong turns, even failed mis­er­ably at this or that, you’re in good com­pany. Many of God’s he­roes in the Bi­ble did those same things, but they learned from their mis­takes. And God came to them, sit­ting in the midst of failed dreams or dis­ap­pointed hopes, and gave them a new rea­son to live. That’s what He can do when we give up on our own plans and projects and de­cide to try His. He gives us goals to help us grow and move in the right di­rec­tion, and then He helps us at­tain them. Give Him your heart and life, and let Him give you all the good things He has planned for you.— Nana Wil­liams

Learn from yes­ter­day, live for to­day, hope for tomorrow.— Al­bert Einstein (1879–1955)

The world is a book and ev­ery step turns a new page.— Alphonse de La­mar­tine (1790–1869)

A story is told of an el­derly woman who slipped and fell on a busy street. Sev­eral peo­ple quickly went to as­sist her, but she was al­ready hoist­ing her­self back up.

“I’m all right,” she as­sured them. “I al­ways fall for­wards, never back­wards.”

When we’ve “taken a fall,” in­stead of dwelling on the mis­take or hurt, let’s make it a fall for­ward by learn­ing from it and look­ing to the fu­ture. — Abi May

A steady look up­ward…

We are given a fresh start not only at the be­gin­ning of the year, but ev­ery morn­ing when we wake up. We have the chance to start anew and make things right.— Mot­tos for Suc­cess

To im­prove the golden mo­ment of op­por­tu­nity and catch the good that is within our reach is the great art of life.— Sa­muel John­son (1709–1784)

Look upon ev­ery day as the whole of life, not merely as a sec­tion; and en­joy and im­prove the present with­out wish­ing, through haste, to rush on to another.— Jean Paul (1763–1826)

Let us la­bor to be like unto an­gels, “strength­ened with all might,” walk

1 ing about the world as con­querors, able to do all things through Christ which strength­ens us. 2— John Trapp (1602–1669)
