The beautiful thing about life today can be a new day if you choose it to be. You can’t embrace the original when you have your arms around the past!
Many days I am reminded to ask myself, can I change what has already been? All you can do is make amends for past indiscretions and move ON. Nothing will change the past, but the future can be between you and God.
Letting go of the past is something I struggle with from time-to-time. Past issues haunt me regularly. Learning to forgive ourselves is foremost in cleansing ourselves for a better life. Forgiveness self-given can be challenging in the sense that we all think our past mistakes deserve a life sentence. We beat ourselves into submission, holding onto junk that we need to let go.
The past does not define who we are today unless we allow that energy to remain. You can, however, be a better person, bring a better you to the world in repayment of past deeds. Something that I have gifted myself. Choosing to produce a better me to the world I can forgive myself. You can make it too!
It’s a choice to stay on the dark side of your past or look to the bright side of your future. The past does not define the person you can be now. What you’ve done in your past is not a life sentence, let it go. Make amends where possible, confess it to God and move on.
If anyone ever told me how strong a fight, the enemy would put upon me. I might not have come to the battle. If you’re like me, the enemy can get a stronghold in your mind. Place the most terrible thoughts in your head. Sadly to the point of exhausting you from the fight in mind.
Keeping in faith seems like a futile task. You want to give up! What I do in these moments and believe me, I get there. My thoughts yesterday had me crying so hard I had to stop the car. Beat the steering wheel screaming get out of my head. Have you ever found yourself in the wrong place? We all have so you’re not alone.
This all occurred for me after sitting through two church services. You would think that I would have been on top of the world. Yet the enemy got in my head hard. I loved what the pastor preached, but I struggled to stay present at the moment. It got worse on the drive home.
Someone that is helping me out right now and that I love very much for doing so. Was working for me in a terrible place. The Pastor’s words were most welcome. At Church, our Life Groups were meeting in the evening.
I made myself attend the life group. People I don’t know since I am new to the area having only just moved at the first of this month back to West Texas.
The life group is made up of beautiful people from my new church home. As we had dinner together, I began to ask questions about faith and dark moments. Trials that the enemy puts before us. Sharp is the dark place the enemy will get your mind.
As these beautiful people spoke to me, I did find peace after a day of battle in my mind. Because you seek peace with the lord, the enemy will pull out all the stops to convince you that you’re not worthy. I learned that God already has placed goodness and peace in my heart. I merely need to accept it.
What’s challenging to understand for most of us, I think. It’s tough to comprehend that you just have to believe. Our lives are conditioned to question everything. My prayer to God for you and myself. God, you have given your son so that I can be forgiven for all my sins. Your promise is a life of joy and abundance. I pray for anyone reading this, and myself that you give us the wisdom and strength in your word to overcome anything the enemy throws at us. That we are active in the Lord and the POWER OF HIS MIGHT! We pray this prayer together in Jesus Holy Name. Thank you for this blessing!
The real point here is that even when you think you lost, find some way to muster the strength to keep going. Help is around the corner, so don’t stop. I didn’t and noticed a feeling of peace that I could hold onto. Order is yours, I promise you will find it if you keep moving forward with God.
