behind and before

Ben Campbell Johnson in his book To Will God's Will, (I'd love to have a study on this book) quotes Frederich Buechner a Presbyterian minister ....
The question is not whether the things that happen to you are chance things or God's things because of course they are both at once. There is not chance thing through Which God cannot speak--even the walk from the house to the garage that you have ten thousand times before, even the moments you cannot believe there is a God who speaks at all anywhere. God speaks, I believe, and the words God speaks are incarnate in the flesh and blood of our selves and of our own footsore and sacred journeys. We cannot live our lives constantly looking back, listening bach, lest we be turned to pillars of longing and regret, but to live without listening at all is to live deaf to the fullness of the music.

God abide and may the music of your life sing...
