Putting the past in it's place...
Sunday, February 24, 2013
Are you living in your past? Are you weird about tomorrow? Worry is such a hard habit to break. I worry myself and I pray to God that I don't allow those precious minutes of my day to cloud my mind with worry, but we are human and it's hard not to let those things in our life to trickle into our minds especially when we have time where we aren't busy doing other things in our lives.
God doesn't want us to worry, especially not about our past. He knows the things we have done! He forgives us if we ask him to and we work on getting past our mistakes. He doesn't forget the birds that fly in the sky, and if they are precious to him, then why would he not make sure our needs are taken care of? I am trying to put the past in it's place! It has a way of creeping up and it makes you think about things and how wonderful they were back then. You start to think that maybe those things in your life now are mundane, they aren't what you want now! The devil works hard on those who are children of God! So turn from the devil! Don't allow him to give you one minute of thought to worry, or to bring the past into your life and the mistakes you have made because all he is trying to do is steal your joy! God wants you to have joy today no matter what you have done! You can have your life back! Amen!
