Recently I’ve been trying to fix things that aren’t relevant in my life (yet) and therefore aren’t broken. God has really been speaking to me about my past and that I need to forgive past offenses before I can even start to think about moving forward in certain areas of my life. Because of unforgiveness, I’ve been hanging on to negative self-image, old habits, and behaviors rather than conforming to God’s image. Lord, I’ve said ‘I forgive _____’ but I haven’t forgotten and still remain angry. Help me to truly forgive myself and others. Please help me grow in You so that unforgiveness never holds me back again. You say that I am a new creation, You’ve given me beauty for ashes, You’ve restored what the enemy has taken, You love me because You want to and have given me Your Kingdom – help me to embrace these promises as truths. Thank You for allowing me to use my past as a testimony, not as a place to return. Thank You!
