Sometimes the past seems to stay around, and we can’t let go of it. God doesn’t expect us to live in the past, and if we are His, has forgiven the past. Why can’t we let go then sometimes? A great collection from Heather at Room to Breathe.
From the post:
- Genesis 41:51 ESV
Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh. “For,” he said, “God has made me forget all my hardship and all my father’s house.”
- Psalm 25:7 ESV
Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
according to your steadfast love remember me,
for the sake of your goodness, O Lord!
- Psalm 51:10 ESV
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.
- Isaiah 40:1 ESV
Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.
2 Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,
and cry to her
that her warfare is ended,
that her iniquity is pardoned,
that she has received from the Lord‘s hand
double for all her sins.
