We’ve all had negative things happen to us. People did us wrong; the company let us go; someone was rude to us. It’s easy to go through life carrying offenses, trapped in self-pity, blaming ourselves and others.
Because we’re always looking back, reliving the negative, we end up carrying around emotional baggage that weighs us down. One of the best things you can learn to do is drop it. Whether it happened one year ago or ten minutes ago, don’t carry negative baggage from yesterday into today. Now do your part and let it go. This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT
A new beginning means turning a season of emptiness into productivity and relevance. We all have been given a right to determine our beginning – The question is what is your new beginning?
Look back and check out those things you think has kept you down or reasons why things not moving the way it should, create a new beginning.
I announce to you that God is turning every emptiness into productivity.
“But forget all that— it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.
Isaiah 43:18-19 NLT
Create a new beginning for that prayerlessness, spiritual weakness, failures, etc, and believe in yourself.
Prayer: Father, thank You that I can be free from all the negative baggage that comes from carrying past offenses, guilt, and blame. Help me to treat the past as the past, that it’s over. I look forward to the new things You’re doing in my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
