Reminisce, Don’t Dwell

Have you ever made a mistake/s in your life?  We all have.  But have you made a mistake so big that you try to deny it’s existence and you try to move on by cutting yourself off from anything associated with that incident?

Well, I have.  It’s not good.

Even though we all want to forget about all the mistakes we’ve made, it’s not realistic about how you should handle such a situation.  We must embrace all the consequences, as hard as it may be.  Whether or not we know it, the distance we put between the incident or the people associated, the more we’re hurting ourselves and also the people involved.  But what’s there to worry about?  Are you afraid of embarrassment, disappointment, deceit, lying, etc?

Whatever the reason may be for avoidance, there’s going to be a day of reconciliation, that you’ll eventually have to face this issue.  The more we can face our problems and issues, the faster forgiveness may come.  Nothing is unforgivable, whatever the circumstance may be.  God is waiting for you, if you haven’t sought Him out yet.   He died on the cross for us, so we can be forgiven.  There’s no such thing as unforgiveness in His eyes.  I ask Him forgiveness for my past actions all the time.  I’ve come to accept my mistakes I’ve made in the past.  Reminisce with friends and family of previous behavior, don’t dwell, and to ask forgiveness from the Lord is the only thing you can do, He will take care of the rest.
