God is ever present. He longs to take our burdens and turn them into blessings but He cannot do that if we hold on tightly to our troubles.
Our past is in the past but if we continually revisit it, we will never move forward into the future that God has planned for us.
Revenge is not good for us. “You want to hurt him… to ease your pain… it won’t work.” Revenge weighs us down and will destroy us.
There are themes of grace and forgiveness. We need to extend forgiveness because Jesus tells us to. We will feel better if we do. Grace is a free gift from God. “You can’t accept it [grace] when your hands are full of burdens.” We cannot earn grace no matter how good we are. We need to receive it and live forgiven.
Life can be hard. We need to trust God to lead us at all times. “She would trust the journey in God’s strength.” When we have no strength left, we can trust His.
There is a wonderful sisterly bond. Sisters who love each other and protect.
God is the God of new beginnings. He can take our messed up lives and make something beautiful.
Forward To What Lies Ahead is both a great story and has lessons from God for us to learn.
