Nor consider the things of old.
19 Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.
Have you been there? If not, let me tell you, it's not a pretty sight! The pain and humiliation we take ourselves through trying to be with someone that doesn't want to be with you. At times, we have a tendency to view a relationship through distorted lenses. We think the person loves us and just needs some time to see what they are missing. In reality, they didn't love you because if they did they would have treated you with more respect. If they really wanted you in their life, they would not have left you for someone else. I know the truth hurts and we want to believe the best, but we must open our eyes to the truth in order to do better. You do better when you know better!
I was on Facebook the other day and someone asked "What is the main thing you're leaving behind in 2013 and not looking back?". My response to that question was, "Past relationships and the lies I've told myself about them". Before you enter 2014, sit down and evaluate that relationship you're struggling to let go of. You've held on long enough and you're doing yourself a disservice. God has someone in your future that will love you for who you are and you won't have to beg them to stay. It's time for something new, but you must forget the former things so you can embrace your new thing! Get ready because you won't have to break down the next door. It will be open and waiting for you to go in.
