Day 18: The Past is Over


“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 living in the present

and 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,NOT

To keep picking off the scab of a bruise., NOT

Yet

THE PAST

is part of you & I, as it happened.

Dwelling on yesterday

& the day before that

& 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 it~

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 when

you & I look back to

THE PAST

with

JESUS

it doesn't crush us to a point of deep despair

that keeps us stuck from pressing forward in the present

on our way to our future.

Therefore,

let's

lose another pound today

and

FAST

from

THE PAST

by

placing it into

JESUS' HANDS

so you can become

Weightless~

Today, tomorrow & Forever

as it is

THE BEST NEWS EVER (listen to the song)
