For a long time I harbored resentment and anger at my family for the way they treated me.  I was so sad for so long about things that had come and gone. All the time, I was mad and the people who’d wronged me had gone on with their lives without caring about what they had said or done.  I felt as if I were owed an apology and for a long time, I felt that I’d never get it.

Well, some of those people who wrong me have apologized and some haven’t. But guess what? It no longer matters!!! Why? Because I refuse to allow anyone to have the power to determine how I live or how I feel. I have taken my power back (and it feels good). My future looks so bright because of it. Nothing that was said or done to me has stopped the blessings God has for me.  However, I was blocking my blessings by allowing anger and resentment to abide in my heart. Love wasn’t getting through.  God is love, therefore, God wasn’t getting through.

Don’t look back. If you are looking back, turn around and look to the future. If you are looking down, look to the sky; things are so much prettier up there. All things are possible. Everything you want is in FRONT of you, NOT behind. My daughter, Martina reminded me that Lot’s wife turned to a pillar of salt because she looked back.  That was a reminder from my 9 year old to keep focused and forward. I was in the Army for 3 years and when we would march, the squad leader would say FORWARD, MARCH.  We had to move forward to get where we where supposed to me.

What are you holding on to that you need to let go of?  Trust me, you will feel so much better when you drop it and go free!
