Episode 205: How to Move Forward Without Ignoring Your Past with Christine Caine

Hole In My Heart Podcast

Friday, September 22, 2023 - 52 minutes

Moving forward can feel terrifying: Like we are jumping out of an airplane and we don’t know if we have a parachute. Why does it feel that way? 

Today, author, multi-ministry founder, and teacher, Christine Caine, joins us to answer this question as well as: 

  • What happened to us in Covid that made us extra afraid of moving forward?
  • Why is moving forward not automatically betraying or ignoring our pasts?
  • How do we know when it’s time to move on? 
  • What if we feel we have to do penance for past sin? How can we move on from that?
  • How does cancel culture play a role in this?


  • “Fixating on your past with a desire to go back is very different than facing your past in order to move forward.” --Christine Caine
  • “The blood of Jesus does not give us amnesia, but it does give us a life beyond our past.” --Christine Caine
  • “Trust what you know about God more than what you don’t know about the future.” --Christine Caine
