Repairing the past

What are the chief responses to a past so full of things, that, if one is not careful, can weigh us down and make the long race of life a difficult journey?

When a handyman lays a floor, he knows the first row of tiles is the most important. If those are off just slightly, the floor will look worse and worse as he continues to build it. Eventually it has to be completely redone. By ignoring God’s call to realign the first row of tiles, we end u having to have our entire life pulled up and relaid. Sensible Christians know this and keep a short account with God,. They constantly repent for their sin and open themselves up to his Subtle touch. Hundreds of small adjustments are better than six really big changes. Being taken behind the woodshed by God is never fun.
