You are now a new person in Christ!
You are free from your past TO act like it! FREE TO ACT LIKE IT. Not.. SO you better act like it.
It’s an invitation …..not a beat down.
Doesn’t matter if bad memories of your exploits surface again. (And isn’t that usually the case when you feel good about yourself, things are going right or you’ve met someone new?)
Keep telling yourself you are NOT that person any more. That version of yourself was somebody else. Someone you used to know and who you no longer associate with.
Anyone brings up your past behavior just respond “I am not that person any more. Why are you bringing it up?”
Stop looking in your rear view mirror or in old journals unless you have a testimony or it brings God glory!
Every moment is a new start peeps. New you. New opportunities. Regardless of what happened a minute ago.
That is what it means to repent.
Someone needs to be reminded of this today. Whoever you are… I love you!
