Do you sometimes find it hard to let go of some bad things that have happened in the past to you? I know I do. Everyone of us has either done something they regret or wish they could have done something differently. I know I have lots of things I have done and needed God to help me let go of the things I could not change. As we know, bad memories can sometimes even randomly come back to haunt us and say "I'm here don't you wish you didn't do this?". When that happens we have to learn to hand it over to God. Because he is the one who heals us from hurt and past mistakes. Trust me I know how hard it can be to just let bad memories slip through our fingers. Even to forgive someone who may have hurt us or that have lost our trust can be difficult . We have to sometimes just learn to forgive and be in present and move towards the future. Our future is in the hands of an all knowing and loving God. We don't need to dwell on the past.
What I have learned, in order to learn to let go of the past and stop thinking about past regrets, we have to just give everything to God and just trust that He will take care of it and that he will heal us. From past regrets, we can be hurt inside not just when it happens but the hurt can linger for years and years. It can take a while for us to heal. I've been there, done that.
The devil is the one who tries to bring back bad memories towards us and rub it in our faces. When
that happens we need to know where we stand in life. We need to remember that Jesus has forgiven us. We can give grace to those who have wronged us. Learn to forgive, learn to look past your mistakes, learn from them and hand it all over to God. He has you in his hands
