Just a friendly reminder to those feeling discouraged about their “past” .. it does not define who are nor does it limit all that God has for you in the future! As a matter of fact, no matter how bad or embarrassing you think your past is, I want you to know that God has a beautiful way of using it to make your story powerful and so inspiring.
You didn’t finish college? You can always go back. You graduated from a public school? At least you got a degree. You worked at a fast food restaurant? I know you’ve learned a lot! You came from a broken family? Now that’s why you’re strong. You didn’t get the job? You can apply again. You were cheated on? You’re not the loser. You served time behind bars? Use the wisdom you gained during that time to encourage the younger generation coming along.
You see my point? No matter how embarrassing you think your past is, they’re already a part of your history and you know what? Before you were ever created or even thought of .. God already knew who you were, what you would be.. He wrote the story of your life before you even started living it and that’s the beauty of it. God won’t throw you away after you make a mistake. He’ll give you favor even after a failure!
Sometimes the hardest person for you to forgive is the one you see in the mirror everyday. It’s time for you to get free!! I pray that you start working on trying heal from the things you don’t talk about or can’t get over. That “thing” the enemy sent to destroy you will be the very thing that God uses to elevate you!!
Sending lots of love, light and positive vibes your way today!!
