If you could erase just one thing from your past, what would that be?
So many times you might be faced with regrets from what had happened in your past. However, you have to understand that what happened, had happened, and you cannot change it. Just like spoken words cannot be retracted, so is the past. If you are bombarded, and haunted with circumstances and situations from your past, then you have to let go in order to reach ahead towards the bigger picture.
Yesterday is gone, today is here. However you can learn from past mistakes so you do not repeat them. If you continue to dwell on the past, and chastise yourself about it, then you won’t find peace, neither will you be able to move effectively into your future. You might not be able to erase your past, but you can shape your future.
If you are going to shape your future, you will have to press past your “past.” If you have been saved, and is living a Christian life, you also know that Jesus had paid all the price for your sins. When you’re in Christ you are a new creature. Old things are passed away, and you are now born again.
Philippians 3:13-14 “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.”
