“Brothers, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing indeed: Forgetting the things behind and reaching forward to the things ahead” Philippians 3:13, Berean Literal Bible.
I’m just going to say it…You’re not hurting anyone but yourself when you give in to the enemy because of what someone did to you. I’m sorry they hurt you. I’m sorry they didn’t believe in you. I’m sorry they weren’t there when you needed them most. It hurts, I know it does. But you know what, my friend? You can either use this as fuel or as an excuse. The greatest revenge is to go full force into the things of God, to go full force into your purpose, to give God your broken heart and let Him kiss it and make it better.
God can give you more new memories that will take the place of all the old hurtful ones. He can show you that there is life after heartbreak. There is more life to live. Your best life is in front of you, not behind you. Reeeaaacchh forward. Reeeaaacchh forward. Reeeaaacchh forward into God’s perfect plan. You can do it. You will find grace waiting in front of you. You will find happiness waiting in front you. You will find healing…waiting… in front of you.
Prayer: Lord, I pray for my sister reading this now. You know exactly what she is feeling. Help her Lord to see the same thing You showed me when I was hurting beyond belief. You showed me the same love that I encountered the first day I surrendered to you. Show her that Powerful, Everlasting, Unconditional, Never Changing Love. Dissolve her fears. Heal her pain. Hug her heart. Remove all hopelessness, and help her Reeeaaacchh forward. In Jesus name, Amen.

additionally when you read this, think about the man who wrote it. this is apostle paul- he was beaten many times in his journeys, imprisoned, survived a shipwreck, snake bite, being hungry and cold all while in his travels to spread the Gospel to the gentiles. He was a man who reeeached- and he reached foward and forgave others and he reached to spread the Gospel to everyone- poor rich, dumb, intellectual, didn’t matter.
YES! Excellent example! Apostle Paul went thur and came out!!! Thank you for putting me in remembrance of that scripture. Ready to reeeeeach😊
I’ve tried writing my comments on this several times & it repeatedly won’t post, saying it appears to be spam. I don’t understand this. Same thing has happened on several previous posts; very frustrating. Other times, my comments post with no problem.
I’m basically writing this to see if it does post; & if it does, can someone please tell me how to fix it when it happens. Thank you & God bless all.
Thought I’d try again, since that came thru. 😊
My comments to the devotion:
AMEN, AMEN, & AMEN 🙏🏾 again!
Thank You Lord Jesus for healing my hurts & pains. Thank You for cleaning my wounds & repairing my brokenness. Thank You, Holy Spirit for showing me how to truly forgive, let go & move on.

May the Lord find you just like he found Haggar.
