We are not what we are in the present.
We are what we were in the past, a sum of yesterday’s choices.
What we do in the present, determines what we are in the future.
We are what we envision ourselves in the future, as soon as we decide to make it so in the present.
Your present is only trapped in the results of the past, when you do not focus on what needs to be done in the present to achieve the future.
The most important thing is to have faith in the Lord, and know who you are as you build what you are as you navigate all three dimensions of time simultaneously.
