How To Overcome Your Past

Your past will try to steal your peace more than anything.

It could come as memories of past sin.
Memories where you fell short.
Memories where you didn’t do good enough in the given situation.
Memories of what you WISH you WOULD HAVE DONE, OR SAID.

So many memories from your past try to steal your peace and make you live in worry, chaos, fear, and exhaustion.

BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO LIVE THAT WAY!

Now, I’ve preached before that our lives are completely spiritual and that there are no “BOXES” or categories in our life.

Everything is spiritual. This is true.
However, we need to learn what to do with things like our past, that seek to rob us of peace.

Some people say there is no way they can NOT THINK about things that worry them or hurt them, or that they CANNOT LET GO OF the times when people hurt them.

I say, “as a believer, YOU CAN!”

Absolutely, you can let go of the past.
Absolutely, you don’t have to dwell on hurtful or bitter things.
Absolutely, you can put worry out of your life.

Here’s what scripture says:

1 Peter 5:7 NKJV
[7] casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

IF YOU WANT TO LIVE IN PEACE FROM YOUR PAST, OR ANYTHING ELSE, YOU HAVE TO LEARN HOW TO THROW.

Those hurtful, past things, are meant to be thrown onto Jesus.

There IS A CHOICE.
You can either choose to throw or cast them onto Jesus, OR you can CHOOSE to hold on to the past with all of its bitterness, pain, hurt, and “might-have-beens.”

You need to choose to do more than just LET GO.
You need to choose to THROW.
