Moving Ahead

The great thing in this world is not so much where you stand, as in what direction you are moving. (Oliver Wendell Holmes, 19th century physician and poet)

We might think more strongly than Holmes about the importance of where you stand, but we can certainly agree with his observation about the “direction you are moving.” Looking back where you once were won’t advance you very far, but it can give you the perspective you need to be certain your life is headed in the right direction.

I pondered the direction of my life, and I turned to follow your laws (Psalm 119:59).
