Philippians 3:13 (KJV)

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forth unto those things which are before.

*In order to move on in any situation and to renew your mind, you must forget the past. We must forget the learned behavior, schemes, and treatment of the things of the world and embrace what there is to gain in Christ. Even as a believer, you may run into people who do not care; claim to have God on ths inside, but display different behaviors outwardly; or abandon you in your time of need or because things won't go their way. Still, we must forgive and set our focus on God to move forward. People are of the flesh, and are often misguided and misinformed. However, if you pray for them, God has the power to change them and use them for your sake. Therefore, I don't have time to stay disgusted, but move on and learn from the situation. I don't have to deal with it because being stationary in mess blocks moving on and upward, but I can look forward to God's ability to make changes in order to cause the circumstance to move beyond the situation. You have the power to do so as well.
