Throw Away Things In Your Past That Hinder You

“A time to gain, and a time to lose; A time to keep, and a time to throw away” (Ecc. 3:6).

Are you living with regret over the time you’ve wasted, the opportunities you’ve squandered, the sins you’ve committed, and the relationships you’ve destroyed? The reason so many of us never get where we’re supposed to be in life is because we don’t want to leave where we are. But so often in the plans of God, letting go is the door to your destiny. Don’t allow the past to hinder you. For many, forgetting the past is difficult. Hurtful memories or bad choices agitate their minds and affect present behaviours. You need to know that holding onto regrets will always hold you back from living the life God wants you to live. When you focus on your past mistakes, it causes you to run from the life God created for you to live.

It’s a new day with a new opportunity to get your life together and move on to greater things, so don’t waste it looking back in regret! Break free from regret and past mistakes to avoid missing your destiny by holding on. We all deal with missed opportunities, regrets, sorrows, and disappointments. No one is exempted. You can look back and feel sad about what you should have done, shouldn’t have done, would have done, couldn’t do, or didn’t do. Just know that God can restore you. God can do more with your future than you could do if you were to live your past all over again. That’s the kind of God we serve. So, we can be free from regrets, disappointments, missed opportunities, past sins, broken relationships and many other situations that we face in our lives. We all have that, but you can throw away things in your past that hinder you and move on in life.
