The Joseph Mindset: Day 1
In The House of Seven Gables Nathaniel Hawthorne writes these words: “The past lies upon the present like a giant’s dead body.”
Many of us can relate to the feeling that our past is hovering above us, crashing down around us, lurking in the dark shadows waiting to pounce us, or just attaching itself to our legs and dragging us down each and every day. Mignon McLaughlin — in The Neurotic’s Notebook — said it like this: “The past is strapped to our backs. We do not have to see it; we can always feel it.” Indeed, we do always feel the past and naturally, it has an incredibly profound impact on how we live in the present and what we’ll do for God in the future. As we continue in this 28 day journey of becoming the people God wants us to be, dealing with our past is an important subject.
