Dear Fear, Regret, Sin & Mistakes,
Let's face the facts….we're not getting along anymore. You and I have been together for a long time now but something has changed. I'm not sure if it was you or me first but I don't think things will ever be like they used to be.
For years you gave me what I thought was joy, happiness and satisfaction. When things were difficult in my life I ran to you and you were always there to accept me. What I didn't realize though was that you weren't helping me. Every time you held me, you were just looking for a way to make me more addicted, dependent or afraid to do anything without you.
Well, now I'm writing to let you know I'm not afraid anymore. You can't hurt me. I know you'll try and you may even cause me some difficulty or pain but I'm not going to let you keep that hold on me. I'm moving on and I don't want to see you ever again. I don't want to be reminded of my past. As a matter of fact, when I think of my past I'm not even going to talk about you. I'm choosing to remember the joyful times, the happy times, the moments of success and blessing.
I know you'll remind me that my choices not only hurt me but hurt others and so my response is prayer. I'm praying for forgiveness. My God has already forgiven me and I'm asking Him to help those I've hurt to forgive me as well.
There have been enough tears, enough doubt. I'm choosing to believe the truth that my Savior has spoken into me. Despite all you have done to me and my reputation, I know that He is able to do so much more with me, in me, through me. He has overcome all my imperfections. He has won the battle against you.
