Create a new history for yourself
Cherish the good memories of your past and relish the positive moments you were provided along your pathway. Life is full of pain. Suffering, shame, and sadness punctuate the past of everyone. But let the love and laughter you have known dominate your thoughts. More than that, create such moments today. Transform whatever sore or shocking history that was yours into a new story of affection, blessing, and delight. The power to do this is in you, O Soul. God has given you his Holy Spirit. He is the Spirit of truth and joy and peace. You can do this by turning your focus away from self toward God and those around you. There’s time enough to create a new narrative for yourself, in the path of Jesus Christ.
