How many of us struggle with our past? Oh, we all have some stuff back there we don’t want anyone to know about, right?
Some of us are greatly ashamed of choices we made - years ago or maybe just yesterday. The guilt and shame can be overwhelming. Others have a past that’s riddled with grief and bitterness that haunts daily. Someone else is responsible, but the agony and hurt are suffocating.
Regardless of what you did or what happened to you, when your painful past steps on your present, you’re in trouble, Girlfriend. And this “trouble” fully intends to rob you of great things – things like contentment, freedom, joy, peace, and hope. It’s hard to have hope when your past preoccupies your time and thoughts, isn’t it? Rather than focusing on the blessings of today, we find ourselves stuck with thoughts that tell us “You’re not worthy of anything good – look at what you’ve done.” Or “You will never measure up – you’re not valuable. Didn’t you learn that long ago?”
Well, dear one, you can rejoice in knowing that even if your history has been painful, history also provides you with great hope for today and for tomorrow. God has already dealt with your past and HIS-story is the only history that can set you free and heal your hurting heart!
Come, join us for our 3rd Girlfriend Getaway tour … learn how to let go of your past, step into your present, and have great hope for your future!
