Trying to hurt me by bringing up my past is like trying to rob my old house. I don’t live there anymore.
Seneca said, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”
Carrie Underwood adds, “Every day is a new day, and you’ll never be able to find happiness if you don’t move on.”
I offer three suggestions.
- Quit trying to have a better past.
- Quit trying to control a better future.
- Quit listening to anyone’s version except God’s.
Recovery Step: Give your life to the God of new beginnings. “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
