Proverbs 4:25-26 (NLT)
Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you. Mark out a straight path for your feet; then stick to the path and stay safe.

When we desire to make a change in our lives, we have the tendency to want to look back. However, the Bible tells us we are to forget the past, look straight ahead, and fix our eyes on what lies before us. We are to set a straight path for our feet to walk on, and then stick to the path without getting distracted.

Verse 27 says, "Don't get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil." Since Jesus is the way, the truth, and the light, let's allow Him to set that path for us. He will walk with us on the narrow road that will lead us to the Father.

The business world, your family, and your community need you to be a decisive woman. Therefore, once you make a decision, don't look back; look ahead instead. Use the wisdom of God to make every plan, and use your faith to stick to the plan God gave you.

As you walk your path, only look to Jesus for help. He is your guide when you lose direction and focus. He is your light when you have lost your own and your lamp runs out of oil. He is your friend when you feel alone and abandoned by your earthly friends. He is your joy when you lose it trying to stay on the narrow road. He is your shield when you fall and get hurt. He keeps you safe.

And when you feel there is nothing to look forward to in this earthly life, don't get discouraged. What lies before you, as a believer, when your journey here is done, is an eternity with Jesus Christ in heaven.
