My Word For You: The Best Is Next
You may be a product of your past, but you don’t have to be a prisoner of your past.
Nothing that has happened to you was a surprise to God. When He laid out the plan for your life, He already knew every person who would hurt you, every loss you would go through, and every mistake you would make.
The good news is that for every setback, God has already arranged a comeback. For every disappointment, He has a new beginning. For every failure, He’ll bring a restoration. For all the ashes, He has beauty.
You have to put your foot down and say, “That’s it.
I may have been through some disappointments, and I may have made some mistakes, but I’m not going to waste the time I have left worrying about what I could have done better, bitter over what didn’t work out, or upset over who did me wrong.
I’m leaving the was and I’m coming over into the is. I’m dropping the offense, dropping the self-pity, dropping the blame, dropping the failure. I’m done carrying negative baggage. I’m going to live my life free.”
