“You have to do the best with what God gave you.”
There are movies that bear watching - again and again and again.
There are books that deserve reading - over and over and over.
There are songs that warrant aclose listening - time and again.
When I ask what it is about those movies and books and songs that resonate within us I find one answer. It seems they contain a message or a key note that resonates with our own struggles and triumphs. As we make our passage through life, we tend to look for validation that what we are doing and where we are going matters. We are looking for peace, for proof that our lives have meaning. Equally, we need to be uplifted and reassured that our passage contributes to the well-being of others.
Return to those movies, pull out those books and put those records on. Renew your faith in who you are and what makes you unique. Lift your eyes toward heaven, open your heart to new beginnings. Lay down your fears and sorrows.
As Forrest Gump says, “ You’ve got to put the past behind you before you can move on.”
