My child, why do you keep looking back to your past? Why do you disqualify yourself from the now by thinking that it is not you that I am calling for such a time as this?
Will you recognise with me that your past is in the past and I am not looking for it, I am not seeking it – in fact I have removed all of it from my record of you.
You are my precious child, who I love, and I want you to live in the fullness of THIS day, in THIS hour and in THIS time. So do not dig in the past for things to disqualify yourself but hold fast to the future that I have promised you in this fullness of life.
Fix your eyes ahead and before you, no longer turning back. Fix your eyes on the horizon. For I have good plans and purposes for you my child. I am with you in all things, now and forever.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him, as far as the east is from the west so far as he removed our transgressions from us.
