Something to think about as we journey onwards in 2018.
If something of beauty is absorbed into our memory and can remain poignantly clear does that object, that person, that person’s action or an event ever fade or will it always be in vivid colour and impact our lives.
This is the importance of forgiveness. We must not hold on forever to clear memories and events from the past that will impact our futures negatively. We must carry into the future only the clear and beautiful images which never fade of what is positive and beautiful. The Smile of a child (not the gross behaviour or the subsequent, perhaps lack of love, they show to family.). We must carefully filter the disturbing images that modern media constantly bombards our minds with. Being informed does not mean being steamrolled with all the endless recalls of past incidents. Our own lives must have filters to surrender to God the mistakes and the bad and ,,,,,,, create wonderful storage folders to keep the positive and beautiful. I believe this is why Jesus came and for believers He is the Divine filter. Through Him and To Him must be all the Valleys and Hills of life…….. released, sanctified and allowed to be become memories always of Hope and eternal value.
Be yourself,,,,,,,,, but SHINE a Light into the world around you. Make a difference in someone else’s day.
