During this shift towards a new normal in the way we live, I found myself struggling with depression again. I’m sure a lot of people found themselves in a place too. Many jobs were lost, people lost loved ones, and there was uncertainty about the future.
Being stuck in the house also meant having to be alone with my thoughts. I don’t like being alone with my thoughts because usually things always come back up. Things as in past things and wondering if it’s possible to really ever let go of the past.
It’s in times like these, where I have to remind myself that these are all lies of the devil. He wants to keep me holding on to the past so I can’t move forward.
He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.Proverbs 28:13
My husband always laughs that I talk to myself out loud, but sometimes that’s what it takes. You have to sometimes talk out loud and remember the promises of God.
In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;Ephesians 1:7
I can let go of the past because:I am forgiven. I am loved. I am worthy. This is possible all through the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ. My story isn’t done until my last breath.
