Free From the Past
September 17, 2010
If someone were to walk up to you and say: “What is the one thing in your past that you feel is holding you back, that you wish you could be set free from?” What would your answer be? Pick one thing….two things…maybe even three. Pick as many as you want and admit out loud that you are debilitated, hurting, restricted or haunted by it.
Then let go.
What better time to let go of your past than today? When do you want to be free? When do you want to be whole? Why wait?! The time is now. Eyes forward….walk into your destiny of joy that awaits you NOW.
Take a load off. Take a burden off…..
Christ says “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” in Matthew 11:28-30.
Instead of carrying our heavy loads around, the time has finally come to be released from that. Unchained, unloosed & free. I hope that we can take on the ‘easy yoke and the light burden’ of Christ by fully trusting that he will free us from the shackles of our pasts.
