Who do you know that has a perfect past? Does a perfect past even exist? Even a child is told stories of their mischief as a baby. Your past has only one purpose, it is not to be hidden or embarrassed by, but it is to be used as a lamp to light the path for wiser steps. A baby, who touches a hot iron, knows that it shouldn’t be touched again. A teenager, who gets bad grades, knows to study more. A marriage ends in divorce; the couple knows to love differently. A person faced with a jail sentence, now knows a better life. No one is exempt from the past, so hiding from it, being ashamed of it or judging someone by it, will only leave you stuck. Your past has gone and only your present matters. Manna (bread) was provided for God’s people daily, any past bread stored or hidden became molded and even deadly. This is the effect that holding on to past disappointments, failures, mistakes and hurts can cause. Let it go and bring only the lessons learned with you. Be present, live in your Now and receive God’s Grace daily. Your past is only there to assist and improve your present.
Repeat After Me… I will fully stand in my present. It is now that I am powerful, I am purposeful, and I am wiser. My past has given me the greatest gift…WISDOM… It is full of lessons and blessings. All things are always working for my good and that includes my past. IT’S ALL GOOD!!! Now Believe it and know it!!!
