Affirmation: My Past Does Not Define Me – 060

Your Past Is Not Your Prison, It’s Your University

The affirmation “My Past Does Not Define Me” is one I’m begging you to embrace, while fully acknowledging I am needing to heed this advice! When you live life as though you are a victim of your past, you’re running from it or doing everything in your power to hide or cover it, you are not truly living. Certainly, you’re not embracing my hope for you, #beboldandjustbeyou. In this episode, we discover what the bible says about our past, and how we can walk in freedom from it.
