"Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended, but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before” (Philippians 3:13)
It is hard for some people to let go of things from the past that has caused them hurt. Things that may seem small to you, but is a big deal to them. In fact, it is so much of a big deal that as a result, their issue has caused them to react to situations or people in their life negatively, unreasonably and unjustly. People who had nothing to do with their past.
If you are struggling with an issue you have been carrying around for over a long period of time, let it go! You cannot continue to carry your past with you on the path where God is leading you. It will weigh you down. Let it go!
Forget about what everybody else is thinking, or what they may be saying. You have not been called to be a baggage carrier, but a gospel carrier. Let it go! You can do this, I know you can, and most importantly Jesus knows you can.
