I want to touch on moving froward from your past relationships. I’ve been single for 2 years now and raising my daughter on my own. When I decided to leave my past relationship I WAS DONE. I went through the grieving stage, I went through the lonely stage and God picked me back up and made me whole in him. For some reason certain people feel the need to update me on my ex and it’s just ridiculous. I feel as though when you’ve been through a storm people need to realize it’s passed over and leave it alone.

God has already told us he knows the plans he has for us so we don’t need the past thrown in our face. It definitely disturbed my peace and I’m praying that the thoughts and things go away. It’s hard to tell someone hey I’m over it so I don’t need you bringing me his/her business. People get offended and think you are not over it turns into something bigger than it should be.

Being single has shown me so many different things but most importantly drew me so close to Christ. I now know my worth, not to compromise my standards, how to forgive, when to say this isn’t serving me so I can’t do this, and to wait on God for my husband. So when someone tries to take you back to an area God has delivered you from you just have to stop them in mid sentence. You have to inform them hey, I’m over that, I had dealt with that, I am new in Christ so I can’t allow you to bring that baggage into my heart.

My peace comes from the fact that God knows I’m honoring him. He knows that I am living to serve him with my mind, body and soul. When HE see’s fit to bless me with a spouse, he will. I don’t need updates on my past because my future is so much brighter. I am healed and complete in Christ so I don’t need to entertain the part of my life where I was broken, lost and ashamed. Let’s Pray!

Dear Gracious Father,

I thank you for being in my life, loving me, healing me and completing me in you. You are so gracious, so merciful and so amazing Lord. I come to you with a mind that’s been tainted by the past and ask that you once again clear it out. I’m new in you and I’m not going back to that woman I was so I ask that you continue to do a work in me. I thank you for delivering me from a horrible situation and giving me so much to look forward to in the future. In your mighty name we pray,

Amen
