God designed each of us with emotions – and as we all know – they can run hastily.

What we must remember – our emotions are to be gauges and not guides – they’re meant to report to us – but they’re not our boss.

When we deal with our emotions – we need to see them for what they truly are.

Take anger for instance – it comes to surface when we feel like we’ve been treated unfairly. While on the other side of that coin – we carry guilt – this emotion is produced when we feel we’ve been unfair.

However, both of them are here to instruct us, and to inform us.

Without them – we would simply be like robots passing through life – totally unable to learn and grow from what we’ve been through.

As most of us have experienced – both anger and guilt are powerful.

It can be difficult to let go of them and move on. They seem to bog us down and magnify – while yes – doing all they can to block our way from properly moving forward.

However – no matter the form or origin of the unfairness on either side of that coin – there has to come a day when we stop and we turn to God for direction – and yes – we move on.

And to do this effectively – simply means – forgiveness is in order.

It always and forever will be – in our best interest to forgive others and to forgive ourselves – this is the only way we can get on with our lives while moving forward as better human beings.

None of us were born to live in yesterday – it’s gone – and the present is so much more valuable.

So yes – we put it in the past where it belongs – while pressing on toward our common goal with our minds set on Him.

We are loved by love Himself. He loves us big and He loves us strong, and yes – love wins period.

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:12
