Build A Wall

      Do you need to a build a wall? Let me explain.
      One of the things Donald Trump said he would do if elected President is to build a wall between the United States and Mexico. This post is not about the wall he has suggested building. Instead, it’s about a wall we may need to build. Why do we need to build a wall?
       Two weeks ago, as we were beginning the new year, one day my mind began to wander some and some mistakes of the past came to mind. Things I wish hadn’t happened, but they did. Decisions I made that I wish I had made differently. I admit, I got depressed.. discouraged…
      Then it hit me… I need to build a wall between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2016 that will not allow me to see my mistakes of the past. I’m guessing someone reading this may need to build a wall as well.
      We all make mistakes. Granted, some of us may have made more mistakes. I definitely have my share. And we can’t go back and undo those. They are done. But, if you have asked the Lord to forgive you, it’s done. You are forgiven. That does’t mean Satan won’t remind you of them again. Which is why we need a wall.
      With the Lords help, we need to build a wall in our minds that prevents us from seeing the mistakes of the past. Because if we don’t, we are constantly reminded of what we did wrong.
      I John 1:9 says, “If you confess your sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Notice John said, “ALL” unrighteousness. There is nothing we have done that can’t be forgiven. But we need to confess it and Jesus will forgive.
      I love this quote by Zig Ziglar; “You can’t go back and make a new start but, you can start from here and make a new ending.”
The past is done. It’s over. Ask the Lord to help you build a wall. Don’t go back. Don’t look back.      Build a wall that blocks the past and move forward.
