There's this song that comes to my head, its by Hezekiah Walker and it's titled 'Moving Forward'. so many people are stuck in the past...or should I say, that the mistakes of their past haunts them and bites them in the arse. Some times it makes you feel unworthy of the good things life is throwing your way and so you throw them out right back at life...at other times you look back and cringe and say 'I can't believe I was so stupid'. It gets worse when you have one or two people around you whose actions towards you emphasize that they think you are not good enough, that you've messed up in time past and you will mess up again...no good thing can come out of you.
My dear...MOVE AHEAD. See if you don't believe any other thing you need to believe what the bible says '...Old things are passed away and behold all things are made new' Do not allow anyone including the devil rob you of who you are meant to be. Your past is over in Christ...all things are made new!! Move forward...no one will move you forward unless you agree to move yourself. Break those friendships that drag you back, they are unhealthy...those friends feel comfortable waving your mistakes over your head because that is how they feel better about their own-selves. You need to separate yourself from those negative people/things that take you back.You owe it to yourself to fulfill destiny, and men and women of great destiny are not those who are timid, ashamed or afraid to come boldly to God, because of one thing or the other.
So when I thought about my resolutions this year and what they would be, I couldn't think about anything else but Moving Forward in Christ and in life. It doesn't matter who has to go in the process. It doesn't matter the discomfort I have to feel in the process. I have to settle it once and for all that my life is in God's hands, not in man's opinion, thus I should be living it to please God and fulfill the purpose for which He has created me.
Let me remind you...'...he that the son sets free, is free indeed' If God has set you free, begin to walk in that freedom. If you remain stuck in your 'coulda, woulda and shouldas' its all on you.
Think about it...
