Forget what happened in the past, and do not dwell on events from long ago (Isaiah 43:18).
I'm rereading, An Enemy Called Average, by John L. Mason, which is a book about being more than enough. His book has 77 "nuggets" in it, which are little chapters with encouraging words. In Nugget 16, Mason says we should be careful not to let the past get the best of us, because it will hold us back from going forward. Don't I know that all too well. I should indeed, because it took years for me to start walking in my purpose and the vision the Lord has for me. I wasted soooooo much time wasting time on what people would think about me that I didn't think much about anybody else. That's what happens when we live in the past. We become stifled and that muffles our voice. Then we can't be good for anybody including ourselves. I finally woke up and realized that if I didn't take more godly chances (which means relying on Him and the wisdom He places in our lives), I wouldn't be much and I sure as heck wouldn't do much. The great thing about the Lord is that He is forgiving and when I repented, He opened many avenues for me to help others. This blog is one of them. And if I can rise up from the depths of being in a dark place of feeling sorry for myself and the mistakes I made, so can you. Tap into the Lord as you ask Him for strength to help you walk into your destiny. And watch what He does. He. Will. Do. It. I'm a witness.
