onward and upward

May I run the race before me,
Strong and brave to face the foe,
Looking only unto Jesus
As I onward go.
~Kate b. Wilkinson

Any fixing of the mind on old evils beyond what is absolutely necessary for repenting our own sins and forgiving those of others is certainly useless and usually bad for us . ... We must try very hard not to keep on endlessly chewing the cud. ~C.S. Lewis

The problem is we go on chewing the cud. have to remember God has forgiven us and we have to do likewise.

Good quotes! Being a farmers daughter, I especially like that one about chewing the cud - I'm afraid I'm guilty of that too!

Good advice...tis not always easy to leave the past in the past...somehow from time to time it sneaks back on us. Thanks for the reminders!
