Releasing The Past

There are times when a thought or deed from the past will seemingly jump into my thoughts either to cause guilt or embarrassment.  If I am not alert, I will entertain these unwanted thoughts.  The past can either be from years ago or yesterday.  Today it was from earlier this morning when I became irritated at something my husband said.  As I prayed about this I was led to Psalms 136:3-5 which states “For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.  But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing or regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;”

As I continued to pray with these verses, I realized I am perfect spiritually, but never humanly!  Then I knew that I am a Spiritual being made in the image and likeness of God, not a worthless material being!  Today I pray to know this better.
