Something went wrong.
Keep moving forward
Regardless of whether you are struggling to move on from past problematic relationships, past job failures, past personal disappointments or sexual struggles, remember God has something amazing planned for your life. His plans for you are not hidden in the past it lies ahead. Through Christ Christians are a new creation. Your former self is gone. It’s time to forge ahead. Imagine if Paul, Matthew or David never pressed ahead from their past. They would not accomplish all the great things that the lord had in store for them.
Leave behind all that burden, it will only impede you on your pursuit to faith. How much greater will the blood of Jesus wash you of all immorality?
If you are running a marathon you do not keep your eyes fixed on what is behind you. If you are in an examination room you will not look behind you or side you. Your eyes will be focused on what is ahead of you. Focusing your sight on Jesus will assist you to persevere.
Permit the overwhelming love of God to push you to keep moving ahead. Have faith in the lord. Bawl out to the lord for his guidance for whatever that is troubling you. Say lord I need you right now to help me to move forward. Allow Jesus to be your motivating force. What happened in the past let it stay there. Don’t dwell on it. Press forward.
don’t just pray for God to open doors, pray for God to close doors in your life that need to be closed.
Leave your past behind you. Its history, not reality. Don’t feel trapped in it. Set yourself free & just be…

What does the scriptures say?
Acts 17:28 For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’
Philippians 3:14 I run straight toward the goal to win the prize that God’s heavenly call offers in Christ Jesus.
Leaving the past behind

Isaiah 43:18 Forget what happened in the past, and do not dwell on events from long ago
Trust in the lord

Seek guidance from the lord

John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
Matthew 6:27-28 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Exodus 14:14 The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of respect, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if something is excellent or praiseworthy, think about these things.
Abba father, thank you for your mercy. Please help me to move forward. Give me strength and wisdom to look towards you and to see you working in my life. Help me to step into my purpose and let your will be done in my life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
