We can learn from a movie, we can learn from each other and we can learn from our own lives. A new direction can happen to each of us. As I get older, I see the purpose of living in today. If I believe in the God, then I believe I can overcome words from others. Now I would like to take the "if" word off and be completely positive of who I am in God. I know that God remembers my sin no more and who I am today.
Isaiah 43:25 New International Version (NIV)
“I, even I, am he who blots out
your transgressions, for my own sake,
and remembers your sins no more.
CHECK THIS OUT ~ YOU ARE IMPORTANT
Only you can accomplish what God has called you to.
Proverbs 16:7-9 New Living Translation (NLT)
When people’s lives please the Lord,
even their enemies are at peace with them.
Part of my dream was a write and teach others by example. I know that my own mistakes have taken me down roads of disappointment. Just like anything else in life, there will be consequences to our wrong choices. Designed to be me and nobody else is what God says. I am unique and so are you in this life. We have the ability to take the negative words spoken over us and turn them to positive. We have the power given by God to live a life of freedom. Casting down thoughts and overcoming things.

I was told by a preacher in my 20's this:
"It will seem like all of your life, you will play second fiddle. It is better to play second fiddle than no fiddle at all". Words that have haunted me over time. I have found myself searching for who I am and often comparing my life to others. Just never quite good enough and struggling to see myself the way God does. Life would move forward and I'm in my 60's now. I know who I am in God and that my life makes a difference. Yet, I have moments of bringing back these words "second fiddle". I open the Bible to find Ephesians 2:4-10 ~ God's handiwork.
We can allow people's words to stop us or grow up. Over time, I've grown into a better person. Leaving behind the bitter feelings of change. My life hasn't turned out like I thought in many ways. I've seen so much for such a short period of time. I'm here today to tell you that you are good enough, you are smart enough, fearfully and wonderfully made by God. So what is that holds you back or seeing yourself the way God does? Maybe words from others and just don't feel it will ever happen for you? There is a timing for all things in life. I have learned that God's timing is perfect and let my own free will gets in the way. Challenge yourself to read the Bible, put on some praise music and watch your day become better.
Remind yourself that somethings don't happen over night. We need time to grow and learn of God. We need time to let go of somethings in life. We need to focus on what is important and how God really wants to use our lives. Your example stands out to somewhere and your words can last a life time. I remember being in 4th grade and my teacher laughing because I couldn't spell a simple word. It stuck with me all my life and kids laughter inside the room. Maybe just a moment of time, but that moment stuck. I can look back and see how I always wanted to be smarter, cute and have kids not tease me. It seem as if adults teased me too. I grew up to teach, lead and be an example of who God says I am. My confident attitude spreads and we should always want to bring the best out of someone!
God has created us to be different and designed us! Never let anyone take away your self worth and know who you are in life. You are so important and someone watches your life. Be that example of Jesus that others needs to see and not just hear about in life. Purpose this a good day!
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
