“I invited the memories to take permanent resident in my mind and heart and prevent me from receiving God’s acceptance and mercy.” Tam
This quote struck a cord within my heart. I invite memories to permeate my mind and heart to the point where I’m hitting replay over and over. I replay the ugly words spoken to me. I replay the scenes where I fail. I am captivated and entranced by these negative, hurtful memories instead of turning to God’s grace and love. Too often I put on my boxing gloves and expect to be able to fight off these memories or emotions by myself instead of giving them up to God so that He can show me “…that in all things He (God) works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” and show me the truth rather than the lies that I replay.
