Quit Beating Yourself Up Over Your Past

One thing many people have a difficult time doing is letting go of their past. Most of us have made mistakes in the past we wish we hadn’t. We’ve done things, perhaps, we were not proud of. Many have a hard time moving on from those mistakes.

We pray. We ask for forgiveness. We put it under the blood. Yet we have a difficult time leaving the past behind.  

Too often we continue to beat ourselves up over our past. Even though God has forgiven us we haven’t forgiven ourselves. We must accept God’s Grace and mercy regarding our past. If we fail to do this we will never walk in the victory and have the joy God intends for us to have.

Not only does Satan throw our past in our faces there are people who will bring our past up to us. However I believe the most detrimental one who throws our past in our face is self. We just have a hard time forgiving ourselves.

Talking to people through the years I am genuinely amazed at the sheer number of people who battle not forgiving themselves. It is astounding. 

Let’s take our past sin, failures, trials and heartaches to Jesus. Leave these burdens at the feet of Jesus. Don’t pick them back up. You will feel like the weight of the world has been lifted from your shoulders. 

We sing a song that I really like. The chorus really has a good message. 

Leave it there, leave it there

Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there

If you trust and never doubt He will surely bring you out

Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there 

Don’t carry the burden from your past. Don’t allow Satan, anyone else or even yourself to discourage you or bring you down because of what you did or didn’t do in your past.

Walk and live in the victory God intends for you. Turn it over to Jesus and smile the rest of the day.

Until next time...enjoy the journey,
