Why waist your time reviewing all the old tapes, reliving everything you did wrong, or worse regretting that you missed it completely or didn't handle it differently? How many times have you ran your reruns?!?!?!?
The past served its use, we paved the road and experienced that learning curve. Yes, sometimes we make horrible mistakes, just learn from them and move on! After we repent, God Himself promises to throw them as far as the east is from the west. Think about that... GONE! ( “as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:12 NIV). So ask yourself if God has delivered you from these errors, why are you punishing yourself by reliving them? HUMMM. Do you think the enemy is trying to shut you down, turn off your sparkle?
Look no one is perfect, none of us, so stop holding yourself to this impossible standard. Stop, and instead be filled with Joy, Happiness, Self Assuredness, with His Total Love!
For myself, as most of you know ... WOW what a crazy two years I have had. In fact, it would be easy for me to stay broken, to stay fixated on my past, "all the things I did wrong, could have done and didn't, wish I did, why did I make those sacrifices for love when it was in a total vacuum forever, why did I allow that, why didn't I respect myself more, why did I miss out, and so on...".
What did I learn, well one of the things I learned was LET GO!! Let Go of the Past, it is over. Stop chasing. I don't need to apologize for it, just learn and move on. It is so amazing, I feel like I have wings now. Of course that is an expression, an expression of the weight being lifted - Thank You Lord!!
I am free to live, I don't have to fix everything past, present nor future. So when those old tapes start, or worse someone else try's to inflict the tapes of guilt, performance based love, shame, or plane you are never good enough.
Why do we let them, my thoughts are OMG never again, I am a princess a child of the King - right.
It is simple don't you dare do that to someone else - AND - don't you dare let someone do that to you!!! They don't have the power to pull forgiven transgressions out of the obis; why would you let them have that power. Do yourself a favor, leave the past in the past. PERIOD!!!
Be new, sore like Eagles; SMILE YOU CAN DO THIS!!
