I am liberated from the past and ready for a new beginning.
I enrich the quality of my relationships when I am willing to forgive—not only others but also myself. When I stop revisiting the past, I achieve a blessed freedom of mind and spirit. Releasing the resentments and discouraging memories opens the way for new experiences. Like the free-flowing stream that brings an ever-renewing supply of fresh water, the act of release clears the way with a fresh inflow of energy. As I think, speak, and act from the Christ of my being, I can and do forgive. The Christ Spirit strengthens me to move past hurt and disappointment and on to living life fully. I forgive myself and all those involved. I am a new person with a fresh, positive outlook.
So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!—2 Corinthians 5:17
