As you grow older, if you are focusing on this world, your life is behind you. If you are focusing on heaven, your life is before you. For one who is depressed, this is critical because
when you regurgitate the past, and especially a past of hopelessness and despair, you put yourself in a downward spiral. You are focusing on a small dot (your life on earth) that will soon pass. If you are focusing on heaven and eternity, you are part of a spiritual line that goes on forever and forever. The question is, where do you want to put your energy – on the dot or the line?
