How to Move Past the Place You've Been Stuck in for Years

Have you ever felt like you've been stuck in the same place for so long it seems like you are going around the same mountain over and over again? I have. For years I wasted a lot of time stuck in the same place—blaming others, feeling sorry for myself, complaining and the list goes on... I was miserable until I discovered the truth about the life I could have through my relationship with Christ.

I was in my late 30s when my eyes were opened to the truth in John 10:10 that showed me I wasn't living the good, peaceful, joy-filled life Jesus died for me to have. The problem was I had a very negative mindset because of the abuse I had experienced throughout my childhood.

God showed me that it was holding me back and keeping me from dealing with areas of life that He wanted to heal and restore. I was stuck in the mindset of, "My future is based on my past and my present." But God really wanted me to have a hopeful attitude of expectation that said, "I'm going to look ahead because something good is going to happen to me!"

The Bible says in Isaiah 43:18-19 (NIV): "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland."

Without a doubt, holding on to your past will keep you from looking forward to your future. read more
