Letting Go of the Past

Whatever you water will grow. You don't get to decide the seeds of bitterness that sprung up in your life, but you do get to decide if you water them.


"Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall et not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert."~Isaiah 43:18-19

You also get to decide if you pluck it up from the roots so that the rest of your garden can flourish. When you pluck up a bitter root, what do you do with it? You discard it. It's seeds that grew on it could have flourished and found a resting place within you but by discarding it you are not only freeing yourself, but you are bringing yourself a peace within. You don't look back and say, " I should have kept the bitter root, or I wonder what happened to the bitter root I threw away." You discard it and you don't think of it any longer. Once it's gone, it's gone. This is the same way we release the past. We do not harp over it or hold onto grudges because in reality we are only hurting ourselves by holding on to it instead of letting it all go.


Remind yourself to take a minute and pause when you get flustered and ask God for the courage to navigate in wisdom and love to find the answers you seek. Love for yourself and love towards others. In this way, you are creating the best possible outcome for your life. Yes, letting go of our hurts and worries is difficult, but holding on to it all causes our entire being to become effected which can manifest itself in other health related areas of our lives. Let go and let God.


Prayer:

Father, I pray that your wisdom, the beacon of light that directs my path, will show me the way to discernment in all things in my life. Allow me to always be led by Spirit and not by my emotions. Allow me to let go of what once was and triumphantly move forward into the will that you have set forth in my life. Direct me, lead me and guide me. In Christ name, Amen.
