I know God has forgiven me for all the bad things I did when I was younger, but I just can’t get them out of my mind, and it really depresses me. Why can’t I forget the past?
It might help to seek forgiveness from a person you have wronged. Sometimes receiving this can go a long way for getting healed of old guilt.
Thank you. It is a good suggestion. Someone told me that I need to pray more and listen God’s word more.
Have you forgiven yourself for your past? Forgiveness has more than one layer. Isaiah 43:25 “I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more. We have to forgive ourselves for our sins as well. If we truly believe that God has completely erased our past sin, then we can let it go. A memory may come up but we must remember that God no longer sees it so don’t let it affect us.
