Heaven is real

“I’ve met too many people who never want to move beyond the past, but most of us, however, finally determine that we won’t be defeated. In some form. we finally say, “i might be knocked down but I’m not going to be knocked out.” We look ahead, and we set new goals. Epictetus, and ancient Roman philosopher , once wrote, “what ought one to say then as each hardship comes? i was practicing for this, I was training for this.”

That’s true, but most of us can’t say those words, at least not at first and perhaps not for many years. We feel our pain and hardship. We struggle with life’s unfairness. Once we realize-emotionaly-that we can’t reclaim the past, but that we can learn from it, our attitudes change. Sometimes we see mistakes we’ve made and we promise ourselves never to make them again. At other times we have no awareness of failure or wrongdoing-and there many not be any. We just have to learn to adapt to our new normal.

After my accident, I had many lessons to learn. For example, I had to learn to accept help from others because I could no longer rely on myself. Could i have learned those lessons in other ways? Of course, but that is the method God used to open my eyes to my need and to teach me compassion toward others.

Markers show where we’ve been. When understood properly, they also poihnt ahead asif to say, “follow this new path. It’s safe because God is with you.”

We all need markers. We may remember them and we may occasionally look back at the huge signposts that say, “this is where you changed directions. This where you began the new normal.” It’s all right to have reminders of where we have been, but if we’re wise, we use those markers as ways to measure our progress. We can look back and say. “That’s who i used to be. Thank God for who I am now.”
