Family movie night yesterday. Watched The Blind Side. Big Mike becomes Michael and finds out the most important lesson of his life. Sometimes the choices we make require a turn in the path that doesn’t allow for back tracking. Sometimes you can’t and shouldn’t go home.
Michael goes back to his old neighborhood in a moment of crisis. He finds his old neighbors aren’t such a good resource for encouragement. Exaggerated for movie audiences, no doubt, but a good lesson nevertheless. Being aware of where we come from isn’t bad. Being sure that it doesn’t get in the way of where we’re going is necessary. God has a plan for us. His plans and paths aren’t always ours.
Food for thought. Blessings.
