It seems that living in the past always brings peace. That is to say that when you look back on or ‘walk down memory lane’ of the places lived and the things done, you remember the good the warm feelings of what transpired and all that was good about it. Like that old barn you played and explored in as a kid or the club house you built or hung-out in with your friends.
The fondness of our past is great, but we also need to realize the pains of growth we experienced in that past that have hopefully brought us closer to Christ and to a better place in our life to ‘know what we know now’ and what hard knocks possibly taught us they we fail to recognize.
Ps 112:7 He will (a righteous man) have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
