Past and Present

“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.” 
Mother Teresa

People come across a lot of past experiences which affect them in someway, these events/experiences/issues/challenges/people/surroundings change them and they become who they are today. Certain individuals carry on to the present what they should not bring along with them. These individuals tend to carry their own burden from the past and evolve themselves in it so much that they tend to forget the present beauty and the present love surrounding them.

These individuals stick to the past hoping it will change when truly we cannot change some things in the past. Yes we have to live with it. Ask God to forgive us and move on with our lives to seeing the present, bringing God’s Grace to be bestowed within us for a better future. 

“The past is always tense, the future perfect.” Zadie Smith 

The question we ask ourselves, is the past worth considering before making a decision for the rest of our present lives? Yes and No. It entirely depends on what you think will help you and what you think will not help you. What would Jesus do in such circumstances? I think He will tell you to pray about it and ask him to help you. 

Praying and asking God to making the right decision in life is very important, asking God to allow Grace in you, around you, behind you and beside you. 

We do not want to go through the same mistakes again, we do not want to meet the same people again, we do not want to hear from certain people again, we do not want to burden our hearts again. These mind-blowing thoughts you always think about is full of crap. These thoughts will never go away until you pray about it, most of all, you step down and allow them to win.

You know you are right, you know you can do this, you know you have the power to influence people but there are just certain people who always interrupts your peaceful moments and always causing problems. I am happy to say, step down and be a doormat, it is no use wasting precious time on such people and in the end you carry their burden with you to the present.

“The past was always there, lived inside of you, and it helped to make you who you were. But it had to be placed in perspective. The past could not dominate the future.” Barbara Taylor Bradford, Unexpected Blessings. 

Why would you want to meet people, share love, find a relationship, start a business, go travel, eat healthy and still carry your past with you. It does not make sense.

Clear your mind, empty that clever brain of yours with goodness and peace, forget the past, focus on the future and bring yourselves closer to God. The more closer you become to Godly presence, you will see your plans fall perfectly into place. 

God knows everything about you, allow him to interfere in your life and you will never regret the many blessings waiting for you. Pray always and have love in your heart, be kind, and gentle for such is also in Heaven.

Many blessings and good weekend.
