“If you’re always looking back at what you’ve lost, you’ll never discover the treasure that lies just up ahead.” -Spearman
Each and every one of us has regrets. We have would’ve, could’ve, should’ve moments. We know there are times we should’ve made better decisions, better choices, or used better judgment.
But we didn’t. And now we can’t do anything about it. Because it’s in the past. And we cannot allow our past to choke out our future.
Perhaps it’s not YOU that did the damage in your past. Perhaps it was what someone else did to you. And, no matter how hard you try, you can’t completely get over it. But…you have to. Because as long as you hold onto what they’ve done to you, you allow them to continually influence, impact and navigate your future. They are still winning.
Regret. Bitterness. Anger. Hurt.
When they take root, they choke out the amazing future that God has for us. We can never discover the treasures that lie ahead. Think about it. The Bible asks the question, “Can both freshwater and saltwater flow from the same spring?”
Can love, joy, peace, prosperity, and abundance exist in the same space as bitterness, anger, regret, hurt, and contempt?
No. One side will eventually choke out the other.
Flowing from our hearts are the issues of our hearts. What’s in us will eventually come out. Do you want anger, hurt, and resentment to flow out from your heart?
When we are continually reflecting on what was, we cannot focus on what lies ahead. What is it that you want expelled from your heart so you can let go of the past and move forward?
Your latter days can be greater than your former days—if you so believe. And if you choose to walk “in” that declaration and “towards” that declaration, mighty things will happen.
Let go of your past. Don’t allow it to choke out your future. Be great—YOUR version of great. Live YOUR extraordinary life. Be future-focused.
God has amazing things in store for you. And your latter days will be greater than your former.
So, be great.
P. S. Are you ready to leave the past behind and step into your purpose? Your latter days shall be greater than your former. Let’s talk now.➡️ http://bit.ly/pain2purpose
