Have you just come out of a long trial? Maybe someone in your family was sick, or you experienced the death of a loved one. Your head might still be spinning from the emotions of your trial. Now that it is over, you are wondering, “how in the world do I get back to a normal life”?
The Bible tells us to “forget the things which are behind.” All the pain, fear, and worry of your trial needs to be left behind . You might be thinking, “but that trial was SO HARD, I don’t know how I could possibly forget it!” God has given each of us the ability to make the pain of our trials a distant memory. Once we get on our knees and surrender the pain of our past to the Lord, He will give us the strength to press on towards the prize!
“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 3:13 & 14
