It is really very easy to live in the past. I have done it for a long time, hanging on to sins that I pray forgiveness for, constantly looking back to who I have been in the past for who I should be today. Thankfully, we do not have to live as slaves to the past, but freely. Sometimes it is beautiful to be broken and truly vulnerable, simply before yourself and the Lord. Despite my times of depression and my constant struggle with anxiety, just admitting my burdens to myself and before the Lord is such a wonderful relief. It is then that I begin to truly see Him as he is through his Word, the One who offers freedom and peace.Each morning is a new chance to make a difference and a change in one’s own life and in others’ lives. Never feel bound to the person and chains of yesterday, and live freely each and every day, as each and every day is a new mercy.
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” ~ Lamentations 3:22-23
