Moving Past the Pain of Yesterday
Life often bring unexpected situations and circumstances. What do you do when one or more of the obstacles in your life causes pain in your life? The disappointment, the discouragement, the depression, the anger, the bitterness and the anxiety are now feelings that you are left trying to overcome. Well, I want to encourage you and speak life into you.
2 Corinthians 4:7-9
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.
Although, you may have experiences some pain in your life. You cannot let it hinder, stop, or block your progress forward. There is divine purpose and destiny on your life, and the Devil wants to stop you from becoming what God has ordained you to be.
You can do this by changing your focus out of the rear-view mirror and focus on what is in front of you. The rear-view mirror is such a small reflection of a big time and space behind you, but the windshield is not a reflection. It is the present. It is right now. You learn and adjust because of the reflection of the past, but it is not for you to live there. Can you imagine trying to drive forward only looking in the rear-view mirror? You are headed for destruction, you are headed for death, and you are putting everyone with you in danger. Don't focus on the past, focus on your now and where God desires to take you.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
It will not be easy, but with the grace of God can help you do it. There is nothing that God cannot heal. There is nothing that God cannot restore. There is no heart that God can not mend. There is no pain that God does not care about! He loves you, and he wants you to live the way that he intended for you to live. Prosperous, in peace, with joy, and so much more!!!
