Every time that I look back on my life I see many times when Father God seemed to be very distant. It is at these times that I begin to look at everything that I have done wrong. this leads me down a negative way of thinking, leading me to get lost in a ‘poor me’ mindset.
The reality at these times can be slightly different; it might be that I have not let go of my life totally to Father God. I have been running the show myself. I have not been able to fully trust Father God with all of my life.
I ask myself what might be the reason for this behavior? The answer, if I am honest, is past hurts. I have trusted people in the past only to be let down; the pain has lead me into the trap of not trusting anybody. Is there an answer I ask myself? Yes there is.
I need to ask Father God to take me back to the memory of these hurts. I then need to forgive anybody that I need to forgive. This process can be very painful so I need to be very close to Jesus while walking through it.
I know who I need to forgive whether they deserve it or not. I can then let the hurt go and hand more of my life to Jesus. I will do this today.
Is there anybody that you need to forgive today?
