Let Go of Past Mistakes

Picture by AlaskaTeacher

Do you hold on to your past mistakes?  Do you give it to God but for some reason keep taking it back?  Everyone makes mistakes.   Carrying the guilt of those mistakes is not healthy or productive.  It hinders everything.

Paul teaches about the need to let go of past mistakes.  In Philippians 3:12-14, we read:

12Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.

13Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead,

14I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Ask God for forgiveness of your past mistakes.  Let them go.  It’s the only way to gain strength and press forward.
