So you’re glued in the past like a recurring nightmare. Every single day, every single hour, every single minute. Feeling wrapped up by your past, starting to wonder what people would think if they knew. Has it become a part of who you are? Well has it?
See the more we think about it, the more we allow the past to consume who we can become. The past is that person at the other end of the rope, tugging us towards them. It knows it can’t survive unless we are willing to let it. we need to learn to let go of the shame we have of the past and start fresh with the future.

A little encouragement that God is the one who shapes our future we just have to let him. He is a God who doesn’t use force but lets us willingly give our lives to Him to mould and shape it to what He has planned. When we learn to trust and work with God we bear much greater fruit, ““I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5). We begin to grow better, influence people better and live better. All sadness is replaced with joy, all hardship is replaced with peace and all doubt is replaced with faith. As He can turn our bronze to gold and our iron into silver (Isaiah 60:17), so can He turn our lives from the dead to life. He’s just waiting for us to abide in Him and receive SALVATION. (This is something I will touch on in detail in a later post).
Let’s give our lives to Him for without God we surely cannot do anything. We cannot progress, we can’t move on from our past, we cannot find peace and joy.
So trust in the lord for His plans for you are not of evil but of peace to give you a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11). Stay blessed!
When you give it all to him, the rest of your life will be smoother 🙂
