The following is taken from the December 31st installment of the Billy Graham devotional calendar, “Wisdom for Each Day”…

What are your thoughts as you look back over the last year?
Was it a year of heartache and loss, tragedy and sorrow?
Or happiness and joy, success and achievement?
Do you close the book on this year with regret, or with relief?

No matter what your answer is, I hope you will paused and prayerfully ask yourself two important questions. First, how do you think God looks on this past year in your life? Did it bring you any closer to Him? Second, what lessons will you take from this year into the next? What did God teach you?

Don’t be bound by the past and its failures. But don’t forget its lessons either.

“But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 3:13-14
