STOP BLAMING OTHERS AND ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY. (3) Philippians 3:3
For we are the true circumcision, who worship God in spirit, and glory in Christ Jesus, and put no confidence in the flesh. (v3)
Whatever your past may have been, God has a better future for you. But before you can “reach” for it, you must forgive the people who’ve hurt you, forgive likely experience a wide range of emotions. You may feel anger, thinking life’s unfair and it wasn’t what you wanted. You always envisioned a husband or wife who’d be there to take care of you. You never expected to have to take responsibility for life on your own. You may feel fearful, afraid you won’t be able to do it – and that if you fail you’ll only have yourself to blame. You feel annoyed that now you have to consider life in a different light, from a different perspective. You may even feel sad over the way you wanted because of your own choice and decisions. you may feel ashamed of your past mistakes, unsure if you really can take personal responsibility and move forward. Whatever emotion comes up good or bad, know that it is normal when you’re making a significant life change. And however you feel, don’t judge yourself. Acknowledge what you’re feeling, ask yourself if your thoughts are rational or if they’re just old fears talking to you. Then stick to your commitment to stop blaming others and take responsibility for your own life. The word for you today is, “Forgetting those things which are behind…(reach) forward to those things which are ahead. (TWFT)
