Letting Go of Past Hurts

11 March, 2019

Post By : David Lindner

Potential is a big word. It’s overwhelming if you think about it too long. But, we all have it. Not only do we all have it, we all want it. We want to live up to our potential. We have this deep seated desire to “be all that we can be.” To be honest, I don’t think we ever reach our potential. Whenever we get to a point we thought would exhibit our potential, we often realize that was just the beginning.

But, there’s a problem. There seems to be something(s) holding us back from taking steps towards our potential. One of those things is our past.

Now, there are issues in our past that aren’t going to be worked out overnight. And while there are principles that we can use that will help us deal with our past, there’s something much greater. In fact, we need something greater. Actually someone.

We need an example to follow. What if you could learn from someone who had the biggest list of offenses to forgive and somehow managed to forgive those offenses even during the greatest suffering he would ever experience?

And what if we could let his life guide our lives? And by letting him guide us, we could actually discover that we don’t have to be chained to our past mistakes or the wounds of our past?

He actually gave us a plan for how to forgive and receive forgiveness. And that’s what we’re going to be looking at in the first week of the “Letting Go” series.

So, if you’re struggling with letting go of what was done to you – or – letting go of what you did that you think is unforgivable, we invite you to join us on Sunday, March 17th where we are going to have a conversation about forgiveness.

What’s scary is, you might not even realize how much it’s affecting your potential. You might not realize all the ways that holding onto this pain has fenced you in. And the cost of not discovering that is quite high. It might not only cost you your potential, but it could cost you future relationships and losing existing ones.

But, if you join us and learn about how you can start on a journey towards letting those things go, you might just discover that you haven’t even begun to tap into your God-given potential. I can tell you one thing, I don’t think you have. I don’t know you yet, but what I know is that you have incredible potential. That’s how God designed you.

What if making this simple decision to do something different could be the very thing you need to get started on the right road?

The choice is up to you, but we really hope to see you Sunday, March 17, 2019!
