Stop Wearing A Past That No Longer Fits.

I slip sometimes.  I make mistakes.  I'm learning the key to this is not to live in my mistakes.  There are things that I used to do that I could easily fall back into.  I'm sure easily is the word… more like I could fall back into, but they wouldn't be comfortable for me anymore.  Its no longer who I am.  Its no longer what I am.  It would be like losing a lot of weight and then putting on clothes you wore when you were heavier.  They don't fit.  They look bad on you.  If you wore them, you couldn't move comfortably in them anymore.  You'd be struggling to keep the pants up.  The shirt would look you were wearing a tent.  The past no longer fits. You'll simply have to leave it all behind and keep moving forward.  Like Paul said in Philipians 3:13 - 14 “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus…” We all make mistakes. We just have to keep pressing.  Keep moving.  Keep reaching.  Stop wearing a past that no longer fits. 

Stay Prayed Up
