Day 30: Forgetful Past


“Forget the former things;

Do not dwell on the past.

See, I am doing a new thing! Isaiah 43:18

Dwelling on

Fixating on

The Past

inhibits you from facing the future.

Isn’t the future~

the unknowns of tomorrow & the “what ifs”—

that we fear?

The Past

encompasses anything that happens from this second back,

to the day you were born.

But how do we forget something

that we did or someone else did?

To Forget~

To Remember Not

To Keep Regurgitating

To keep picking off the scab of a bruise...

Yet

The Past

is part of you & I,

as it happened.

Dwelling on yesterday

and the day before that

and the day before that

is like going up a down escalator~

it keeps you in the same place.

You & I can't remove your past~

Is there something from the past that is weighing you down?

Is is

~a Wounded heart

~a I wish I didn't do this or that

~a I wish they didn't do this or that.

What do you need to say goodbye to that is following you everywhere

infecting the present

because you just can't let go?

Life is made up of a series of goodbyes—

but the goodbyes are always followed by a hello—

a Hello to a Newness~

because of a

Forgiven Past

A Healed Past~

"Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." Isaiah 43:19

Because

of the

One who came to

"Heal the brokenhearted". Luke 4:18

So

that when

You & I

look back to

The Past

with

Jesus

it doesn't hurt anymore.

Therefore,

let's

lose another pound today

and

Fast

from

The Past

by

placing it into

Jesus' Hands

so you can become

Weightless~
