You Were Never Meant to Carry This – One Step Ahead
Greetings Dear Reader,
The song I used to introduce this series, Dear Younger Me has a line; “If I could tell you everything that I have learned so far then you could be one step ahead of all the painful memories still running thru my head.”
We would all like to be a step ahead of the results of our choices. We would all like to know the outcome before the choice is made. We do not. We have warnings and portents. We have advice from those who precede us.
The thing is that we all have painful memories we carry. We all have failed at things that matter. We are not meant to carry those things. We are to learn from them. We are to grow and become better.
We are never meant to carry our failures beyond the cross. They are forgiven. They are paid for by Christ. We are not able to change the past but we are able to throw off the pain if we adopt the proper perspective.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
