“Oh Yes the past does hurt “say what???

In Sunday school a few weeks ago we were having a discussion about the past and what we can do it move on , and see what direction God can take us in if we allow him to have open availability to our hearts and minds. But yet for some reason or another the quote from “The Lion King” kept coming to mind, ” Oh yes the past does hurt, but the way I see it you can either run from it or learn  from it.” But in truth can you run from God without Him already knowing about the situation? He already knows the very thoughts going through our minds, He already knows the desires of the heart. So yes He does know all of this, but yet for the same  very reason which has still stumped me, it could mean the reality is it could be our free will which produces this feeling within us. But that is called being stubborn. I think that is why it takes us so long to learn lessons that should come so easy to us, but in another thought process how many times do we wear a mask? Here is what I mean….’I’m not afraid I’m not ashamed  I’m not to blame Welcome to the masquerade  I’m not ashamed I’m not afraid  I’m not okay  Welcome to the masquerade Welcome to the masquerade ”

By no means am I saying we should wear masks in order to shape how we feel with our hearts. But if we do not somehow face our past and confront that which may or not be blocking us from rising above when then shall we? The Bible says in Proverbs 3:5-6 paints a clear picture of what is trying to be said here. ‘Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight” So then are we supposed to rise up and face our past, or are we supposed to stand by and let it fade? But in another retro speck, let us remember that Christ has taken the past with Him to Calvary. Happy Reading, Adam
