Past Problems or Problems in the Past...
By Pastor Pat Giraldin | January 18, 2018
We all have a past. Some of it may be good, and some of it may be bad. Problems happen to all of us, they are part of life, and unavoidable. The question is not whether or not there will be problems, but when will they happen. Have you ever noticed that problems seem easy to remember? Ever been involved in a discussion about problems - it’s like it can become like a competition, right?
Problem is we hold on to problems. I believe because problems create a debt. When we
get hurt, we feel like we are owed something. Wanna know a secret? Most debt brought on by a problem has little to no possibility that what was lost, could ever be paid back. So why hold it??? There is no good reason.
What if you could release you past? You know what happens when you do? The past will release you. The method and the means in order to achieve this is...wait for it...forgiveness! Forgiveness is a choice, a conscious decision...it doesn’t just happen, and it doesn’t require forgetting!!!
Our past should remind us, and not define us! When we figure this out, it is life changing. Get it?!
