Nostalgia is a sentimental longing for the past. Many of us think back to our past with fond memories, but sometimes our nostalgia becomes our idol. What place does our nostalgia have in our lives?
MONDAY: Read Isaiah 46:1-10. How did the Israelites past tempt them away from God? What did God warn them?
TUESDAY: Find some old clips of things you liked in your childhood, whether it is movies, music videos, shows, etc. What feelings come up? Do you tend to have positive or negative feelings towards these memories? Why?
WEDNESDAY: Nostalgia is fun, but it can also be dangerous. Pray for strength to live in the present and to remember who He is, what He has done, and who we are in HIm.
THURSDAY: Write down how you are different today than you used to be, both good and bad. How have you grown in the past 10 years? How have you become the person you are today?
FRIDAY: Do you have any memories that you remember more positively today than it was at the time? What do you feel compared to what it really was?
