Ever look back over your life to see where mistakes were made?
Ever taken inventory and possibly made a list of past boyfriends and thought about where the relationship went wrong or even asked yourself, “Why did I ever get with him? What was I thinking???”
Ever thought about possible relationships you never gave a chance for whatever reason and now it’s too late so you’re stuck thinking about “What could have been.”
If you’ve ever had these heart meditations, know that it’s completely normal.
We’ve all looked back at some point of our lives.
The key is to not stay stuck looking back.
Instead of wallowing in the past and creating your own storybook of your life where the ending is, “If only I…” look ahead and continue to move forward.
Forgive yourself of the past, don’t get stuck in it.
Learn from past mistakes, pray for those who have wronged you, and keep going.
Know that today, you’re wiser, smarter and better because you have matured in life and in your relationship with Christ.
God still has a bright future for you, in spite of your past.
He’s forgiven it, now it’s time for you to forgive it, too.
But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Ephesians 3:20
