“FORGET the past, LIVE in the now, EXPECT a future.”

You are not your thoughts.
Any thoughts you have don’t define you as a person unless you act upon them.
If we all acted upon our thoughts,
none of us would receive eternal life.
We’d be doomed for hell.
We all have temptations, as humans.
God says in His Word, He is not astonished by intrusive thoughts. We all have scary or embarrassing thoughts sometimes that pop into our mind or that we purposely allow to have ruling over our lives because we don’t know how to get rid of them. And I hate to say it, but at one time, God had embarrassing thoughts as well. How else can one give advice to get through something if they’ve never been through that themselves? Exactly my point. At one time, God wasn’t perfect. He made mistakes and made the ultimate sacrifice by being Himself. He never was consummate (perfect) until He rose again.
Sometimes we think we’re so weak that we eventually give in and allow those thoughts to control how we live our day to day lives. We let it get so far that we feel like we’re sinking in quicksand, scratching at the surface looking for a hand to hold or somebody to hold us.
We’ve got to have common sense and realize how strong we are and how weak our thoughts are. We have to fight until our final breath. We’ll never get through life if we constantly dwell on our thoughts or past events that hurt us or maybe we hurt someone else. There’s a reason why it’s called the past. It is MEANT to be left behind, not relived. We’re living in the now. All we need to focus on are positive events currently occurring.
You can’t ride a broken time machine and expect it to work without being fixed.
Meaning, you can’t focus on the past and expect to be happy if you can’t forgive AND forget.
Live in the NOW and your past will be nonexistent (like Harry Potter’s invisible cloak).
Forget the past, Live in the now, Expect a future.

  1. Your writing is so inspiring and helps me get through difficult situations. Thank you so much. I don’t know where I would be without your amazing advice. Being an only child, I don’t have anyone else to turn to therefore when I came across your blog, I couldn’t stop reading. Your blog continues to get me through my day to day struggles. I believe your writing is going somewhere, and I believe you will write a New York Times Bestselling novel one day and I will be the first person to buy it ❤️
