“But that’s no life for you. You learned Christ! My assumption is that you have paid careful attention to him, been well instructed in the truth precisely as we have it in Jesus. Since, then, we do not have the excuse of ignorance, everything—and I do mean everything—connected with that old way of life has to go. It’s rotten through and through. Get rid of it! And then take on an entirely new way of life—a God-fashioned life, a life renewed from the inside and working itself into your conduct as God accurately reproduces his character in you.”Ephesians 4:20-24 MSG
The past version of you is to be left in the past. Holding on to it will only hold you back from your future. Cut off all chains from your past, release all your baggage. Your future is new. You’re walking into a new you. You’re opening new doors. Don’t try to open new doors with old keys, meaning don’t try to take on life with the same old habits. You have the opportunity to reinvent yourself everyday. My prayer is to be a better version of myself tomorrow than I was today. That’s all you can do, try and be better. Let go of your past. Remove it from your memory. Focus on what’s to come!
