What was done is DONE! No matter how earth shattering it may have been, it happened…I’m going to keep moving forward.
In most cases I knew better, I just chose to do wrong, selah. Yep, we’re a product of our environment, but how long can we use that excuse? Surely we’re not still using that as an excuse in our 30’s, 40’s and 50’s.
Well, I didn’t begin to recognize the patterns of my destructive behavior until my late 30’s. Before then I was clueless of the consequences; silly me right, but such is some of you too.
If I knew back then what I know now; my, my, my. BUT that was then, this is NOW and NOW is all I have.
It would be easy to say that all I did was pray and God answered and here I am today, but that’s some bologna!!! It feels like I fought tooth and nail for my sanity at times. I felt like caving in. I felt like just living any kind of way, i.e. ways contrary to what God desires for my life.
I didn’t understand it at first and still don’t understand it all now, but I understand it better.
You see God has a plan for all of our lives. A plan to do us real good and not harm. He wants the VERY BEST for us. He hooked us up before we were even conceived in our mommas womb; I believe that!
When we receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of our lives we are born into the family of God, ALL things are made new. This was foriegn to me initially because I was so conditioned to my own environment and ways of doing things. I couldn’t fathom that the things of God were real or applicable to me so it took YEARS for the word of God to grow roots in my life. Before then I was just going through the motions of going to church and participating in the related activities.
I remember distinctly calling God on the carpet one day, Dude showed up and showed out and it’s been on and popping ever since then.
I’m not looking back! My past doesn’t have anything for me. Good or bad, that was then, this NOW! My past is indeed over! Full steam ahead!!! I am in my happy place.
I thank God everyday for showing me glimpses of my brighf future!
