Let Go of the Past

Let go of the past. Enjoy your good memories, but let go of things from the past which bother you. Don't try to live in the past. Look ahead into the new year of 2018. It's time to move forward. Thank God for bringing you to this day. Trust God for new opportunities and blessings in your new year.

Let go of the hurts and failures of the past. Forgive those who have hurt you. Pray for those who have spoken against you. Let it all go. It will only stop you from moving forward. Don't hold on to those things. Give them up to God in prayer. Ask Him to heal any broken places of your heart. He still heals the broken heart. Give yourself time to grieve, then move on with your life.

There are two kinds of people in this life. There are those who only look back to the failures and bad experiences of the past. Then, there are those who seldom take time to look back. They have goals ahead, with hope for better things that God has for them. What are your goals for 2018?

Let the goals of your life be according to God's will to serve Him, focused upon Christ. It's time to move on ahead. Let this be your New Year's resolution for 2018: "Forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 3:13-14).
