If I were to ask you what your life has been or is like, what image would come to mind? That image is the metaphor for your life. It is your description of how your life works and what you expect from it. It determines your expectations, your values, your relationships, your goals and your priorities. If we focus too much on what we did wrong or didn’t do, on the bad decision we made or didn’t make, our life will be stuck in the past and will not let us run towards the goal God has for us.
