My online friends Wyndy, Wanda and Alexis were talking about the weight loss bible study they were doing. I wanted to get in on it so I checked it out and here I am. I am excited already just from reading the bible verses for Day One. Wow! What could be more encouraging to someone who has a hard time letting go of past failures, hurts, and junk than to read that God wants me to forget. He tells me to forget it! I needed to hear that and even though I have read those verses before this was the day I let it sink in.
God is impressing on me that: He wants me to totally let go of my past. All the failures, shortcomings, and bad things that have happened even as recently as yesterday if I need to. Because, He is going to do a new thing in my life.
I've shared with the Lord that: With his help and loving reminders I will let go and let Him heal me of those hurts. I will let him do a new thing in my life.
Thoughts I had today: It's hard to say this but I am going to be honest. I had a lousy day. My thoughts were filled with negative things. I find that when I am alone I dwell on hurts from the past. They just seem to flood my mind and I can't stop them. I dropped my kids off at their favorite Saturday night hang out, our church, and I found myself alone......again. So, I came home and looked up the bible study and read Isaiah 43:18-19. Just what I needed. Thank you Lord. What are my thoughts now? Ones of hope.
