“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. Isaiah 43:18 New International Version
Do you dwell there?
You know, do you keep on beating yourself up for some stupid mistake you made years ago?
When you repent the Lord casts it away like the rubbish it was so why do you not do the same?
Do you keep on reliving abuse that was inflicted upon you years ago?
Let it go or it will destroy you.
Now in these two instances the cuts may be deep which will mean you may need Christian counseling.
Do not be too proud to seek it out.
A wise man, or woman understands there are times in life when we need to help others as well as accept others help in our lives.
It was only when I got into counseling that many of my past deep wounds were healed and I learned how to deal with the abusive ones that take perverted pleasure in inflicting those cuts on others. Yes they are still there but because of the counseling they are no longer able to cause the damage in my life.
Do you keep on reveling in your glory years even though they are like a morning mist and have long since disappeared?
I have met too many that remember their glory years as the best of times. They ignore the bad things that happened then, only the good.
I am not saying to be a Negative Nellie but do not be a Glory Geordie either. There was both good times and bad in every stage of our lives.
Come into the present while concentrating on Gods will for you today and tomorrow.
You cannot see what is ahead of you if you keep on looking back. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rohi (God is our Sheppard) for helping me to learn form the lesson of the past while not dwelling on them. Thank you for blessing me with keeping my eyes focused on Your intended path in my walk with You. I exalt You in he name of he who was always focused on Your calling in His walk amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day
