“At the end of the year we turn with eagerness to all that God has for the future, and yet anxiety is apt to arise from remembering the yesterdays. Our present enjoyment of God’s grace is apt to be checked by the memory of yesterday’s sins and blunders.

Let the past sleep, but let it sleep on the bosom of Christ.” –Oswald Chambers
