Taking a break from my new Bible study, I have begun to read the book, "The Road to Forgiveness." This book is written by a husband and wife whose daughter and the wife's mother were killed in a car accident by a drunk driver. The book is full of scripture that this family used during their time of sorrow. A verse that stuck out to me that I wanted to write about is John 16:33. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation (trials and sorrows): but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
A quote from the mother, Cindy Griffith also spoke to me"...set my mind on what is yet to be. I realized that if I spent all my energy looking back at what I could not have, I would be missing out on the present and the future."
