When you stay trapped in the past, a lot of amazing opportunities pass you by. If you don't move from your past, from that place of hurt and anger, you'll continue to attract more pain and anger into your life. When we forgive ourselves and take steps to forgetting the past, that act is one of the most loving actions we can do for ourselves because only then do we begin to heal and start to uncover a new person. Just know that everything that has happened before is a preparation for what our future holds. It all makes us wiser, stronger and more prepared for whatever is coming our way.
Despondency is a tool the devil uses to steal people's vision. He injects this evil poison into man's heart through the experience of loss and suffering. That today is bad and the future looks bleak does not mean that your tomorrow will be terrible. As long as you are in CHRIST, You can be rest assured that your tomorrow will be alright.
