God is Not Interested in Your Past

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

1 Thessalonians 5:18

Recently at my men’s group, I shared how are past in of no interest to God. He desires that we come to Him with a repentant and contrite heart and live fully alive in mind, body, and spirit all for His glory. The resurrected Christ has paid in full all sins past, present, and future. How often do we allow the evil one to permeate into our thoughts, the author of lies, to derail us from living our kingdom mission? Even our patient God is probably saying, “Get over it. Get off the sidelines and into the game. I love you unconditionally and live each day fully alive in for my glory.

I also shared to start each day in gratitude. Gratitude is the antidote to negative thinking. We cannot be grateful and bitter at the same time. A simple grounding exercise: Inhale love, exhale gratitude and focus on Jesus keeps us in the “present” moment with our Jesus. There is no safer place. Nicholas Black Elk reminds us to “Take each step-in prayer, for when you take each step-in prayer, you will always be walking in a sacred manner.

Gratitude is the antidote to negative thinking!
