Some people just do not like to lose. And if you watch them closely enough, in time, you will begin to see how they go to great lengths to make sure they win.
Now, in fairness, loss is not something I handle well either. But more than losing in a competition, loss can come in many different forms.
Recently, a friend of mine lost a person. Not through death. They just disappeared from their life. Without a trace. At times like these, it’s easy to question God. At least I have a tendency to do so. Interestingly, the message that kept coming to my friend during that frustrating time was, Don’t try to open a closed door. Just leave it alone. That was hard. She didn’t want to hear that. So, she argued with God, and questioned, and argued some more. Needless to say, the door did not re-open. And, she guesses it never will.
There was a verse that kept coming to my mind as she shared her story with me. It is found in Isaiah, chapter 43 verse 18. It goes like this:
Do not call to mind the former things,
Or ponder things of the past. (NAS)

a more modern translation says it like this:
Forget about what’s happened;
don’t keep going over old history. (
The Message)
If we’re honest, most of us would admit that we struggle to let go of the past. Whether it’s our past or someone else’s. Sometimes, it’s just simply hard to move on. Perhaps it’s a grudge or a personal grievance that we feel quite justified in holding. Whatever the case, there is one piece of advice I think you’ll agree is good to not only hear, but to adhere. It goes like this: KEEP MOVING.
Basically, lose the baggage of the past or whatever is holding you back. In the end, you’ll be glad you did.
Just my thoughts,
