Try driving forward instead of backwards

Dutch translation / Nederlandse vertaling > Probeer vooruit te rijden in plaats van achteruit

"Serve the LORD with gladness:
come before His presence with singing.
Know ye that the LORD He is God:
it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves;
we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
and into His courts with praise:
be thankful unto Him, and bless His name."
Psalm 100:2-4

"How many times to we begin our prayers with thankfulness?

Someone once said, "There [are] so many times that we load up all of our
burdens and worries onto a big dump truck and we put that truck in reverse
and then we back that truck right up to the throne of God and flip the switch
and dump all of that trash at God's feet, all without ever seeing Him."

This is completely backwards from God's teachings.
We should enter God's presence with praises and thankfulness.
Then, after we have spent time thanking God for His mercies
and praising Him for his greatness,
we can turn the truck around and unload our worries and burdens.

Which direction are you driving your dump truck today?

Try driving forward instead of backwards into the presence of God."
(From The Daily Psalm)
