found another thread
about forgiveness, forgiving, but I can't bump it because it is old, so I will copy and paste:
Today's Topic: Forgetting the PastAuthor: Jerry SavelleVerse(s): Philippians 3:13
Today's Confession: I choose to forget what is behind and press
on to what lies ahead. I believe that God has good plans for me, plans
to give me a hope and a future, to prosper me and not to harm me.
�Forgetting the past and looking
forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the end of the race and
receive the prize for which God is calling us up to heaven because of
what Christ Jesus did for us. Philippians 3:13-14 TLB
If things haven�t gone as you expected and you are still hanging
around in the past with feelings of guilt and condemnation, it is time
to get out of that! It is time to get on the NEW path God has for your
Yes, you will make mistakes, but His Word tells us, He is right
there to pick us up. See Him as He is, a Father, a good Father, a loving
Father ready to pick you up from the mistakes of the past and set your
life on a NEW path of JOY!
He wants the best for you, you�re His child! I know that is how I
feel about my own children. They may disobey me or ignore my warnings
and they may suffer from it, but I never stop loving them. I never stop
wanting the best for them and that is how He feels about each and every
one of us!
It is time to forget the past, forgive yourself and forgive the
person or persons who have done you wrong. Look to what God has in store
for you, new plans and new dreams.
