Popular Japanese author Haruki Murikami said, "Unfortunately, the clock is ticking, the hours are going by. The past increases, the future recedes. Possibilities decreasing, regrets mounting." Is this true? Do you find regrets mounting? Is your future growing smaller? The Bible takes a different perspective on the intertwining of past and present. The Bible orients us toward the future like a compass pointing north, and the Holy Spirit gives us the power to walk in that direction. Wouldn’t you like to learn how to become future oriented without succumbing to sentimentality or wish-based feelings?
