Mothers Devotionals Day 16 - Letting Go
Philippians 3:13 but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.
As women, it’s not easy to forget the past. We’re prone to negative bias, and it’s much easier to remember the bad instead of the good. We drag around mental and emotional suitcases filled with our disappointments, pain, rejection and failure. Then, we lug that hidden baggage into and out of our jobs, relationships, and dreams without realizing that what we’re holding onto is hurting us and others.
Often, we don’t let go of our past because we don’t know how. Others hold onto the past because they believe that they deserve the pain or misery. If that’s how you feel, then I’m so glad that you here. Regardless of your past, God has a hope and future for you (Jeremiah 29:11). In Christ, you are a new creation and no longer defined by your past
Are you still holding on to pain from the past?
Have you asked god to help you to let go?
