Baggage From The Past

I changed and would like to see other folks go from glory to glory. No one seems to say it quite like the apostle Paul. But in this article I will attempt to try to express some of the things which help with transformation.

Not only in blended families but also in individual themselves we find that folks are still stuck in the past. There could be several reasons for this injustice that seem to be brought by the person themselves. Such as not forgiving, guilt, bitterness, anger and a lot more of emotions may possibly play a part.

This is a great concern with anybody or any situation but since I have been elaborating on blended families, I shall address that aspect only. A very deep and troublesome aspect of the adjustment of blended families, along with triangulation, is putting one’s focus ahead of them and refrains from looking behind. You could say living in the past. Mentally this is exactly what is taking place.

However as always I shall depend on the Word of God to support my claim. Not many couples understand what it is to really move on and begin a new life with a new mate. Trying to move forward while looking backward is truly sitting you up to fail. If you are not ready to forget the past, please consider the little ones involved, and delay making a new until you reach that potential.

The apostle Paul advise us in a different way; Philippians Chapter 3

13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but [this] one thing [I do], forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before. With this quote take from The Holy Scripture, I do not think I am capable of reframing this great word of wisdom.

Parents save yourselves, saves your children and prepare yourself by releasing emotions, as well as anxiety and depression and think of the life you have in front of you. Set your goals and be responsible enough not to get stuck in mud and drama. It may be a difficult task but change is essential if you are to still succeed in family matters.

Remember to bring into your new house some love, joy, peace, longsuffering, perseverance, peace and happiness and leave the extra baggage outside the doors. Just how many times will you have to get hit upside the head before you know how low to duck?

Forgive so that your Father in heaven will forgive you. Our sins are as far as the east is from the west, who are we then to judge others, and as you say hold on to heavy, unproductive garbage, none of it is constructive and it will not add a day to our lives. Thank you Robert another great one, Love your heart for the families Kymee

Kymee...well said but I am just delighted that folks like yourself fully understand these type of emotions are not good for anyone to hold on to. Be year angry but sin not; don't let the SUN go down upon your wrath. Good scripture advice!!!
