Do you ever find yourself dwelling on the past? You begin to think about big and little incidents that may cause regret, grief, sadness, or self-condemnation.
Recently I was on a trip, where I had time just to sit and think. I found myself remembering unhappy events from my past. These unpleasant thoughts were an imposition that kept me from experiencing joy and harmony, so I started to pray for a way to combat this mental invasion. I remembered a quote from the Bible: “Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13, 14).
The next angel message that came was delightful. Mary Baker Eddy defines angels as “God’s thoughts passing to man” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 581).
