Summary: BECAUSE MANY OF US FIND IT DIFFUCLT TO GET PASS OUR PAST PAIN WE FIND IT HARD TO BREATH TODAYS AIR WHILE CHOKING ON YERTERDAYS TOXICANTS
2 Samuel 9:1-8 (KJV) And David said, Is there yet any that is left of the house of Saul, that I may shew him kindness for Jonathan's sake?
 And there was of the house of Saul a servant whose name was Ziba. And when they had called him unto David, the king said unto him, Art thou Ziba? And he said, Thy servant is he.
 And the king said, Is there not yet any of the house of Saul, that I may shew the kindness of God unto him? And Ziba said unto the king, Jonathan hath yet a son, which is lame on his feet.
 And the king said unto him, Where is he? And Ziba said unto the king, Behold, he is in the house of Machir, the son of Ammiel, in Lo-debar.
 Then king David sent, and fetched him out of the house of Machir, the son of Ammiel, from Lo-debar.
 Now when Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan, the son of Saul, was come unto David, he fell on his face, and did reverence. And David said, Mephibosheth. And he answered, Behold thy servant!
 And David said unto him, Fear not: for I will surely shew thee kindness for Jonathan thy father's sake, and will restore thee all the land of Saul thy father; and thou shalt eat bread at my table continually.
 And he bowed himself, and said, What is thy servant, that thou shouldest look upon such a dead dog as I am?
2 Samuel 9:13 (KJV) So Mephibosheth dwelt in Jerusalem: for he did eat continually at the king's table; and was lame on both his feet.
VERY BRIEFLY I WANT TO REASON WITH YOU ON THE THOUGHT
(HOW TO GET PAST YOUR PAIN)
MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS
THE TEXT BEFORE IS CENTERED AROUND KING DAVID
AND DAVID DEALINGS WITH MEPHIBOSHETH IS A PICTURE OF GOD KINDNESS TO LOST SINNERS
FOR IT SHOWS THE GRACE AND MERCY OF GOD TO UNDERSERVING PEOPLE
AND IF THE TRUTH BE TOLD EACH OF US WOULD BE ON OUR WAY TO A DEVILS HELL WITH NO GOD ON OUR SIDE IF IT WAS`NT FOR THE GRACE AND MERCY OF GOD
IF THE TRUTH BE TOLD
SOME OF US NOW IS AT A STAND STILL BECAUSE OF THE PAIN OF OUR PAST
BUT I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU
NOT TO LET THE PAIN OF YOUR PAST
HINDER YOU FROM PRESSING ON IN LIFE
BECAUSE MANY OF US FIND IT DIFFUCLT TO GET PASS OUR PAST PAIN
WE FIND IT HARD TO BREATH TODAYS AIR WHILE CHOKING ON YERTERDAYS TOXICANTS
AND THE REASON WHY IS
BECAUSE PAST PAIN WILL HAVE YOU SINGING THE BLUES WHEN YOU DON`T FEEL LIKE SINGING
PAST PAIN WILL HAVE YOU COUNTING SHEEPS ALL NIGHT AND WON`T LET YOU GET A WINK OF SLEEP
PAST PAIN WILL HAVE YOU CHEWING ON YOUR FINGER NAIL THINKING THEY ARE A CHOCLATE CHIP OR OREO COOKIE
BUT WHERE YOU ARE NOW IS NOT WHERE YOU HAVE TO STAY
BECAUSE IT`S SOME ONE HERE UNDER THE SOUND OF MY WEAK VOICE
THAT IS STUCK IN YOUR PAST AND IT`S HINDERING YOU FROM WALKING IN YOUR FUTURE BLESSING
AND WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT YOUR PAST YOU START HURTING ALL OVER AGAIN
AND YOU KEEP ASKING THE SAME QUESTION ?
HOW DO I GET PASS MY PAST PAIN
BUT I`M GLAD YOU ASK BECAUSE THE TEXT GIVES US SOME BIBICAL PRESCRIPTION OF HOW TO GET PASS OUR PAST PAIN
WELL IN THE TEXT WE FIND A MAN NAMED Mephibosheth.
WHO BECAME LAME WHILE HE WAS IN HIS NURSES CARE
FOR HIS NURSE DROP HIM WHILE HE WAS IN HER CARE
AND I NEED TO PAUSE AND ASK A QUESTION
IS THERE ANYBODY HERE BESIDES ME THAT HAS EVERY BEEN DROP
DROP BY SOME KIND OF ADDICTION
DROP BY A SO CALLED FRIEND WHO WAS LAUGHING IN YOUR FACE
AND STABBING YOU IN YOUR BACK
YOU SEE Mephibosheth. SHOULD HAVE BEEN KING
BUT BECAUSE HE GOT DROP
IN OTHER WORDS
HE HAD TO SUFFER FOR SOMEONE ELSE`S MISTAKE
AND SOME OF US –AND OUR CHILDREN OR SUFFERING FOR THE FOOLISH CHOICES WE MADE IN THE PAST
WE GOT INVOLVED IN SOME STUFF THAT’S STILL CAUSING US PAIN TODAY
BUT IF YOU WANT TO GET PASS YOUR PAST PAIN
YOU HAVE TO MAKE UP YOUR MIND TO FORGIVE THOSE WHO HAVE HURT YOU IN YOUR PAST
SOME OF YOU IS HURTING RIGHT NOW BECAUSE YOU WON`T FORGIVE SOMEBODY WHO DID YOU WRONG IN THE PAST
YOU SEE HOLDING ON TO ANGER WILL KEEP YOU IN YOUR PAST
AND THE ONLY REASON YOU STILL HAVE THE PAIN IS BECAUSE YOU KEEP HOLDING ON TO IT
AND WHEN WE LEARN TO FORGIVE WE CAN MOVE PASS THE PAIN
