Grace must find expression in life, otherwise it is not grace.

Free from the past

You don’t need to run away from the past. For it’s already quickly receding behind you.

If you’ve had a wonderful and fulfilling past, it is now time to move forward. If you’ve had a difficult and troubling past, it is now time to move forward.

Whatever the past may or may not have been, it is now over. Choose to not let it hold you back for any reason.

Are your thoughts filled with regret, resentment, sorrow or anger for what has already been? The sooner you let go and move on, the better your life will be.

Cherish the past, take wisdom from the past, but don’t let the past become your prison. Free yourself to move forward in a positive, fulfilling way.

If there’s one thing you have learned from the past, it is that life is precious. Now is when you can fully realize and experience the precious life you are in.

— Ralph Marston
