Is it possible for a grown man or woman who is full of regret, bad memories and a painful past, to start all over again as if it were their day one? Is it possible for someone whose mind is full of problems, doubts and fear to be reversed into a strong mind, full of faith again?
Humanly speaking, people do not simply ‘forget’ the past, especially when it has to do with negative and painful memories. Many people hold onto the past mistakes and regrets for years and years. Only through a conscious decision to leave the past behind, can a person start their journey to a clean slate, in other words, a brand new story. Holding onto the past is what brings about the confusion and doubts inside the minds of many people nowadays.
Dear reader, what if I were to tell you that there is a way to forget the past, and have a brand new story in life, would you believe me? Well, do not take my word for it, let us see the proof in God’s Word.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”(2 Corinthians 5:17)
If anyone is in Christ, (s)he will have a brand new story. The only way to truly let go of your ‘old story’ is by surrendering it to our Lord Jesus. He is the only One able to wipe away all of the past problems and turn them into simple memories. He can remove the confusion, the doubts and the fear inside your mind. But this act does not depend on Him. Can anything be added to a container that is already full? The answer is no.
If you are still full of your ideas and opinions, God’s Presence cannot fill you. However, if you are willing to empty yourself so that the Spirit of God may fill you, then you will have a new story in life, one filled with strength, prosperity and above all, your eternal salvation.
“Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’”(Revelations 21:5)
May the God of the Bible bless you
