The Secret of a Happy Life

I came across a reading from the classic book The Christian’s Secret of a Happy Life. The chapter on service is one that every minister should read. (Read it now.)So often we experience “blue Mondays” because of our reflections on the past, mulling over things best left with God. There is great value in learning from the past and understanding how it came about. At the same time, there is great freedom in leaving it (victories and mistakes) with the Lord.

There is, perhaps, no part of Christian experience where a greater change is known upon entering into the life hid with Christ in God, than in the matter of service.

Forget the things that are behind, the moment they are past, leaving them with God. –As quoted by HWS
