The Hurt of My Past

This morning I have a lot on my mind. As a Woman Broken and a Woman Whole (still working on the wholeness piece), I realize that past hurt can run deep. Most days I feel as though I have overcome the hurt of my past, and then one day, out of the blue, I get this tremendous weight of pain from something that hurt me years ago. At first, it feels like I’m reliving the situation as if it is happening right at that moment, and then I get myself together, remembering that I have forgiven the offender and have forgotten the offense. I have to verbally remind myself that I have been renewed in the spirit of my mind and that satan can no longer have that space in my mind. I have to remind myself that the past is just that: the past and it has no place in my present. When I think of my offender and the offense, it is the opportunity for me to pray for them, not wish anything bad for them. It is the opportunity to love them like GOD loved me when I was offensive towards HIM. GOD is a forgiving GOD and a HEALING GOD. It is GOD’S DESIRE FOR US TO BE EVERY WIT WHOLE and we must desire the same for ourselves. So every time the enemy of your soul comes to bring back thoughts about things that hurt you in your past, remind him that you have overcome by the BLOOD OF THE LAMB (JESUS) and the WORD OF YOUR TESTIMONY.
