An example of an unmet expectation is when you carry disappointment–carry it like a knapsack; and within the disappoint, much like filling a container, a knapsack, you begin to pack every hurt, wound, broken relationship and disappointment from your past, into the midst of it.
You rehearse it like a play–what you would have said, should have said–that you perceive would have made it right.
Are you the creator of your life?
Do you have the ability to rewrite history?
The answer to both is no.
But you do have the ability to rewrite your future.
You see when you rehearse, over and over, your past and your pain, you develop disgruntlement and bitterness; and even if ever so slight, it will affect your future.
It is like paying interest on a debt that you don’t owe, for your past belongs to Me.
I exchanged it with My Blood, in Forgiveness for your sins–the Perfect Sacrifice to perfect you for all time!
Lay the knapsack down.
You cannot embrace your future, if you are holding on to your past–your heart will not be ready. In looking back, you won’t see the path that leads to tomorrow–the path that you ‘see’ leads to sorrow.
Turn around, see Me!
Give up the fight.
“Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ, God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. So we are ambassadors for Christ. God making his appeal through us. We beseech you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” 2 Corinthians 5:17-21
“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience, forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful.” Colossians 3:12-15
