The Past is The Past
This I must admit I have had a very tough time letting go and moving on. Things keep happening and most of the time it’s the same as the past. So if it happens today and it’s the same as what happened in the past, then it takes me all the way back. I am working on being in my peace and keeping my peace. Not letting anyone steal my joy, I am staying in Gods word more and more everyday now, and days are becoming easier.
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14 KJV)
Always feeling like my past is in my present time, it’s difficult not to give up, still it’s something in me that won’t allow me to stop. I would like to believe that’s Christ Jesus in me.
There are days I have felt I would be able to go on, but after sleep, some prayer, and it’s always extra special when someone comes around right at the moment you need a ear to listen, or a good laugh. The hardest part is allowing yourself I be happy, it’s so much easier to laugh than cry and be angry, also it feels a whole lot better.
I’m learning to live for the day, not over-thinking and leaving the past in the past.
