Although we wish that certain things never occurred in our lives, there is nothing that we can do to erase the painful memoirs that are forever etched into our past.
Too often, we replay
· every humiliating moment that we ever experienced,
· and all of the times that we were disappointed because of
something that someone else failed to do.
Although we want to forget and let go, we tend to rehearse all of the cruel suffering we ever endured. At the same time, we vow to never again allow anyone to inflict upon us this kind of pain.
We must not continue to live in it.
We must learn from it.
I don't know what you need to let go of, but I do know that it is time to stop allowing it to keep you in bondage.
So, tonight, I am making a vow to let _________________ go. Will you make that vow with me?
Fill in the blank with whatever it is that you're letting go.
...forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
