Keeping out negative thoughts

During the corse of my life I've had a lot of hurts and pains, in the past these situations would haunt me for months even years. But as I got older and wiser I found myself getting closer to the Lord in many different ways other than going to church, see I never was a church going person however I am very spiritual in my heart and mind. As the years went by I found my self looking at life through a microscope and finding out that I was not alone in my journey for the truth and that people in general are all afraid of the future and it's unknown reality. Now as I studied the Word and people, I can see the hurt and pain that we have caused our Lord and the many races on earth because of the missunderstandings we have for each other and even for our own desires within. This has lead me to except my life and my world for what it is and that I can't blame God, man or even the Devil for what I've been through know matter how hurtful or painfull it was, I was the one who put my self in most of my drama. Don't get me wrong there are other forces at work in or lives that we cannot control. But in the end it is our choice that sets the course for lifes journey. Today I still go through the ups and downs but now I can release the pain and move on through the power of forgiveness, and believe me it does work. Because when you let what ever the negative situation is that's eating at your soul, you give it control over you and life is not being enjoyed, your justb surviving. God bless you.

I've been there, too. I've been haunted also. We are all afraid of the unknown future. None of us are alone. We definitely cannot blame God, man, or Satan for any of the hurt that we've been through. I know for a fact that I have put myself right in the middle of a whole bunch of unnecessary drama. Yes, there are always other forces at work that we have no control over. But it is always our own choices that set our own journey into motion. Every day will always have ups and downs. Forgiveness definitely has the power to free ourselves from pain and help us to move on and to recover. I also know that it truly does work. Definitely, if you let a negative situation eat at you and your soul, then it has complete control over you and your life and you will have no enjoyment. What an amazing post. God bless you, too.
