I remember the days of old. Psalm 143:5
Sometimes our minds run back through the years and yearn for that better time and place—the “good old days.”
But for some, the past harbours only bitter memories. They ponder their own failures, disillusionments, and fantasies, and think of the cruel hand life has dealt them.
It’s better to remember the past as David did, by contemplating the good that God has done, to “meditate on all His works; . . . muse on the work of His hands” (Ps. 143:5). We can see His blessings through the years. These are the memories that foster the highest good. They transform the past into a place of familiarity and fellowship with our Lord.
We can’t change the past, but we can change the way we look at it. If we walk with the Lord and trust Him, He has a bright future for us all.
