Why would anyone hold on to bad memories and reopen scars or wounds that should have been healed? These memories should disappear like the person or persons in them. They have moved on and they are enjoying themselves without a thought of you, so why are you clogging up your brain with that mess? Use it as a message to yourself never to go down that road again. So what if they broke your heart, used and abused you, at least you are not dead, and you have an opportunity to rewrite the story of your life for the better. Unfortunately most people don’t know when it’s time to move on, and let things go. It’s time to wake up, and realize that you can’t change the past, but your future you can change because experience teaches you valuable lessons, that text books or schools don’t teach.
Why would people decide to suffer the abuse and pain others have cause them instead of moving on to bigger and better things. The same thing goes for preaching and teaching God’s word; if people refuse to listen or change, then you have to move on to others who will listen, and are interested in knowing the truth. In Acts 17:32-33, Paul was trying to educate the people in Athens about Jesus; but instead of listening, they mocked and threatened Paul, so Paul departed from among them. Sometimes in life no matter how you preach or try to educate a person, about God’s truth and righteousness through his only begotten Son, they will resist the truth, and then hate you.
When people move on, it is either for better or worse, good or bad, righteousness or unrighteousness. One road leads to heaven and the other leads to hell, no matter what the choice and decision is, it is theirs to decide. Most of the time things happen to change our life for the better and redirect our paths to God, unfortunately some move closer to the devil and his things of the world. However, the wise move closer to God, because He never leaves or forsakes us, and because He is our helper, we will not fear what people will do to us as Hebrew 13:5-6 tells us. The apostle Paul’s advise on moving on in Philippians 3:13 – 14 is the best, it says, “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, I press towards the mark of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
