When the past comes calling, let it go to voicemail. Believe me, it has nothing new to say.


It’s time to delete your voicemail.
Listening to old messages doesn’t leave room for any new messages to be recorded.

Sounds rather simplistic, but true.

When your head is full of “I am a loser”, ” I will never do it right”, “no one will ever love me”, and ” I can’t”, there isn’t room left for the truth. You need to clear out the lies.

A loss doesn’t make you a loser, if you learned the lesson the first time and don’t keep repeating it, or if it reveals you to be a caring, compassionate person.

If there is a skill you need to learn, then take the time to learn it versus lamenting over it. Trying in the process doesn’t mean you will never get it right. It means not yet!

There is always someone who cares for you out there. There has never been a person alive ever that someone one has not loved. That’s a lie leading you down the path of self destruction. You need to take care of yourself, and love yourself by doing so. God doesn’t ever and didn’t make junk when He made you. You are a one of a kind unique creation, designed with purpose. Soak in the knowledge that He loves you, until you start to believe it. Then begin to live it.

There may be some truth to you can’t, but maybe you aren’t supposed to. There are many things I wish I could do, but I am blessed to have friends and coworkers who can do what I can’t. We help each other in our weaknesses by being one another’s strength where we can. Just as where we are lacking, God can provide & strengthen us.

If you keep running those old tapes (negative messages, not meaning tapes from the 80s & 90s!) from the past long enough, they can start to sound like truth.

It’s time to hit the erase button and leave the past where it belongs- in the past. Spend some time listening to the One who knows you best, and live out who you were designed to be.

The best future you can have?

Learn the lessons from your past and leaves them there, as you fully live your present.
