Finding Freedom from The Past
Have you been haunted by past wounds? Does your mind wear you out from the constant jabbering of what has happened? If this is what you are experiencing, I would like to help you with some tools to help you find freedom from your past. Christian Coaching has helped me to focus on the future and the promises that God has for me.
*The first step is to know and understand what those promises are. The first one I would like to focus on is the promise of a good future.
“For I know the plans I have for you, “declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”- Jeremiah 29:11
*The next step is to get this scripture ingrained into the core of who you are. Take this one scripture and repeat it over and over again for a full day. You will find yourself not only repeating it as your new narrator throughout the day naturally, but you will also begin to believe it and live by it! It is amazing how the mind works, when we feed it anything, either good or bad, it will take it in like a computer and it will become hard wired as part of who we are, and we will act upon it. So, if you desire good things to happen to you in your life begin to fill your mind with that which is good! Again, repeat it over and over again!
Another promise from God is that He will work out even your problems for good!
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” -Romans 8:28
Did you hear that? God said in His Word EVERYTHING! That means what you are going through right now will be worked out for your good!
*Use your imagination for good! Imagine what you have gone through or are going through in its perfect form, exactly how you would like it to be. The healthy relationship that you would like, visualize it! Form it in your mind, what does it look like to talk with love? The joy, the smiles, the good times! What does the job look like that you desire? Picture it! Did you possibly just lose a job? It hurts I am sure. Now take and visualize an even better job, more time, more pay, recognition. God will work EVERYTHING out for your good. Say it again and trust, believe! Good is coming your way!
Lastly, if you want freedom from your past begin by helping others.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-5
When begin serving others and comforting them it takes our minds off of our problems and begins to bring purpose from the pain that we have experienced. The purpose of comforting others!
