Keep moving forward… (A Sunday Enlightenment)

Posted: October 14, 2012 in Faith, Live & Learn


Moving forward into the great future God has made for you involves learning how to overcome the disappointments in your life. Like, when you are lied to by a boss, betrayed by a friend, walked out by a loved one, its’ natural to feel remorse or sorrow. Nobody expects you to be an impenetrable rock. These kinds of losses leave indelible scars, causing you to want to hold on to you grief. It is easy to want to get even. But you must make a decision that you are going to move on. It won’t happen automatically. Often, defeating disappointments and letting go of the past is the flip side of the same coin, especially when you are disappointed in yourself. When you do something wrong, don’t be quick to beat yourself up about it. Admit it, seek forgiveness and move on. Be quick to let go of your past mistakes and failures, hurts, and pains. And remember that God has promised that if you will put your trust in Him to bring about the justice in your life, He will pay you back for all the unfair things that have happened in your life. That means you don’t have to go around day after day trying to win and pay everybody back. God is your vindicator. Let Him fight your battles for you and let Him handle them His way. Don’t live in regret or remorse or sorrow. They will only interfere with your faith. Faith must always be a present-tense reality, not a distant memory. God can turn your situation around and make it all up to you, plus much more!
