Words Of Encouragement By Lynne Conley / a couple of years ago Share Tweet Pin Share Weight Where are you today? Do you feel the weight of this world on your shoulders? Are you carrying some old sins that keep haunting you continually? The world says you make your own bed, and now you have to lie in it. But in the scriptures it teaches us all John 5:8, Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.. Please don’t lie in your bed of sin, remorse, misery, pain, and suffering. Let go of your past! Everyone has a history, things they wish they could change. The challenge is always to press forward and not let our previous stumbling be the reason that keeps us from fulfilling the future God has in store for us.
