''........You will forget the shame of your Youth..........'' Isaiah 54:4 NKJV
You can't go back and make things different. You're not the same person and you are never going to be. You cannot relive the past or your early years.
But there are three scriptural steps you can take to get up, get over it and move on.
(a). Forgive what others have done you (Ephesians 4:32)
(b). Forgive yourself for what you have done (Philippians 3:13)
(c). Believe that God has truely forgiven you, and act on it (Isaiah 43:25)
Sometimes we hold onto the past because we believe there's something there we think we still need.
We cling to certain things because we fear we'll never be able to replace them.
No, God has more in store for you. if you've entrusted your future to HIM you haven't seen your best days yet.
There's more ahead of you than behind you. God promises:'....beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mouring, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness....'(Isaiah 61:3). So in God's strength get up, get over it and move on!
