How to Manage Your Past, Present and Future
By Dan Langerock
The past is irretrievable. There is nothing you can do that can turn back the clock on what transpired back then. It is set in stone! You can condemn yourself and others about these occurrences, but it wonít change a thing. If you have not resolved the issues here, they will follow you to the present and beyond.
The present is the only time mode you can do anything about. You can elect to keep doing what you have always done, but the mistakes will follow you until you decide to do something about them. Is it really worth it, to keep dragging through your life, what has perhaps happened many years ago? You will just become more bitter as time goes on, and your life will be hurt in more ways than you can imagine.
If you have chosen to cancel the debts of the past and present, then you can look forward to a great future. You will have a clean slate to live your life upon. I remember as a child, whenever we went away for the weekend as a family, my Mom would always pack so much it would barely fit in the trunk. This same concept can happen when you carry emotional baggage from one time mode to another. The more you carry this around, the less happy you will be as life progresses. Whenever the thing that is bothering you happened, leave it there.
God is here to help you manage the issues of your life. You donít have to walk that road alone. He cares about you with a love that can transcend all fear and hurtóif you let it. Isnít it time you laid aside all that emotional baggage you have been carrying so long? Trust God with it, for he is able to carry it much better than you can.
