Is the past really the past?

Standard

Philippians 3:13 says, “But the one thing I do: Forgetting what lies behind and pressing towards what lies ahead.” Today I find myself in a crossroad. A crossroad where the past crosses with the future. A place where old relationships keep surfacing for one reason or another. I keep asking this question: Is the past really the past or is it possible that it can be restored and actually becomes the future? When Paul said, “Forgetting what lies behind”, did he mean everything (good and bad) or does it just pertain to the bad? Are you supposed to forget the experience, delete the memory all together, or just relinquish the pain?

I know that everything happens for a reason and what the devil meant for harm, God turns it to good. However, my mind keeps wondering if this crossroad is act of God or a ploy of the devil?
