“I am working at building a closer spiritual relationship with God. I want to leave the past and my addiction behind me and be a positive role model in my community.”
Reliving painful memories and mistakes can cause us to get stuck in our past and prevent us from moving on into a new life in Christ. God loves us regardless of our past, and we are offered forgiveness as we trust in Jesus and work of the cross.
“But one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14
