We say we want to be healed of old wounds. And yet, many of us pick at the scabs and open the wounds again, keeping them from ever healing.
When the memories of negative situations come to mind, choose to let them go. Satan will tempt you to replay them. When you do, he will taunt you with “made you look.”
How do you overcome the temptation to replay the negativity? The same way you do on your computer. Hit delete and then type a new sentence.
If you keep typing the sentence the same way, it will be a “sentence.” You will sentence yourself to living in yesterday instead of receiving God’s Present of The Present.
“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
