In life, you may have gone through bitter and ugly relationships. Maybe you were just treated unfairly or things just didn’t work out as planned even when you gave it your all and you felt really hurt. There are also times when you had seen the handwriting on the wall, but you just hate to face the truth, giving all kind of excuses and yet things still didn’t work out.
But really, bad times like this could be good lessons. You never lose, you only gain from life. It’s just a matter of your perspective. If you lose something, you lose it for a reason, that reason may be hard to understand but whatever it is, you just have to believe that GOD takes away when He has something better to give.
It’s time to bury those old memories, let it go. It’s okay to shed those tears, sound it all off but don’t remain there for too long. Life is too short for regrets. Regrets are meant to teach us what to do better next time; evaluated experience is the best teacher.
It’s time to evaluate your own shortcomings, call a spade a spade and not a big spoon. As Julius Caesar once said, “he who fails to learn from the hands of history is doomed to repeat it”. Many a time, instead of learning from our past experiences, you find yourself repeating them.
Have that courage to love again. Courage is the answer to all your fears. It is not always that easy but the Grace of GOD is always available. Forgive whoever may have hurt you; it does you more favour than the other person. As Joyce Meyer said “harbouring unforgiveness is like eating poison and hoping that your enemy will die”.
Let the past pass away so that you do not pass away with your past.
Don’t let the fear of your past turn good people who may want to come into your life neither does anyone deserve to pay for your ex’s sins. Vengeance is of GOD’s. Don’t use that single experience if not more to form a theory that all others will be the same.
In all, forgive yourself and the other person and trust GOD for the best for you deserve the best. Value, respect and appreciate yourself for GOD values and loves you so much.
Take that bold step.
Isaiah 43:18-19: Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?
