Two Words That Lighten the Load - #6806
Rejoicing is really the habit of looking for God at work and acknowledging it when you see it. Thanking God is sort of like putting sweetener in a bitter drink. Negative thoughts are just going to make the drink that much more bitter. A thankful heart, a joyful heart, a heart that believes that God has said, "I know the plans I have for you. They are for good and not for evil; to give you a future and a hope."

Life in the Backwards Seat - #6691
You may be at a point where you're ready for a new beginning - where the hurts and the failures of the past no longer will define who you are. That is when it's time for Jesus, who died for all the sin and all the hurts of the past.

True Woman: Voices of Recall
Doesn’t it seem that whenever you make a commitment to follow the Lord more faithfully, that commitment is tested?

Past - a Christian perspective
We cannot change what has already happened; this verse encourages us not to dwell on the past, but to consider how God wants us to live now.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Beyond Yesterday - #5652
You cannot change the past, and the Devil would love to have you focused on what can't be changed. Then you're a slave for life. Jesus wants you to focus on what can be changed, the future.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Rewinding Your Fall - #4023
Our grandson is definitely a child of the VCR Age – when he has a bad fall, he wants to rewind to before the fall. Well, so do some of us. We’ve had some falls – spiritually, morally – and we wish we could rewind and do it over. Obviously, we can’t. But, in a way, God does offer us an opportunity to rewind our falls to get back to where we were before we fell.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Trapped By The Baggage - #4070
Here, God has great plans for Saul, but he's not there for them because he's hiding in all this baggage. Over the years, many of God's children have missed God's plan because they were buried in their baggage. Like us that chaotic day at the airport, a lot of us can't move ahead because we've got all this baggage to deal with.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - When You're Tired of Climbing - #3847
It could be that you're climbing a pretty steep slope right now. It's been a long climb - and as you look ahead, you've still got a long way to go - maybe spiritually, maybe emotionally, maybe in getting through a time of great pain or need - maybe in working through some family problems. And right now you're battling some discouragement, some feelings of giving up, some deep weariness. You're discouraged by how much is left to do - the amount of ground you still have to cover. And it may be bringing you to standstill.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Spirituality Oprah Style-Erasing the Past - #8024
We have all got stuff in our past that we do think about more than we’d like to. It’s stuff, though, that can’t be dismissed just by a better way of thinking. We need an eraser, not just a spiritual sedative.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The View From The Roller-coaster - #8056
You know, life is bound to be a roller-coaster if you keep looking back. A life that matters is focused on where you’re headed, not where you’ve already been.
