Why is it that the memories we most need to rid our minds of are the ones we seem to cling to for dear life? Most times, it's simply because we choose to hang on to them. If we refuse to let go of hurts from the past we are choosing to let them affect our present and shape our future.
C.S. Lewis said it well: "Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing the monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward."
Some of us are living our lives in FAST-FORWARD--always rushing ahead, continually striving for a better future.
Others are stuck on REWIND--constantly looking back, rehashing the pain and disappointment of the past.
Perhaps it's time to switch to PLAY mode--to simply enjoy life in real time, savoring every second we have with a Father who offers us the hope and healing we're looking for.
