Lessons from Asenath on how to forgive yourself and move forward

Lessons from Asenath on how to forgive yourself and move forward

So we’ve been doing a lot of talking about Rachel and Leah in the last few weeks, haven’t we lovely? With a particular emphasis on what they teach us about how our pasts can negatively influence us with goal setting. For example, setting goals with the wrong intentions/why or making “God’s word of no effect” by holding on to “tradition”.

The past can also keep us in bondage if we refuse to forgive ourselves for past mistakes, failures or lifestyle choices so that we can become the women of God that He ordained us to be. But never fear, lovely! Asenath (Rachel’s daughter-in-law) has much to teach us about the 4 step process of forgiving ourselves and moving forward so that we can avoid all that jazz (and much more!)- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.

Lessons from Lot's Daughters on How to not Let the Past Define You

Lessons from Lot's Daughters on How to not Let the Past Define You

So, I’m not going to lie…when I first came across the story of Lot and His daughters, I was like:

“What type of Game of Thrones ish is this?!”

Because ***trigger warning***

Their story (as detailed in Genesis 19:30-36) deals with themes of (male) rape and incest.

However, through the Holy Spirit’s leading, I realised that the events of their story- plus the consequences of it- have important things to teach us about not letting the past define us in 3 simple steps:

  1. Acknowledge it

  2. Know it doesn’t define you (God does) and that-

  3. Where you started is not where you have to end up
