Psalm 34:5-7 Contemporary English Version (CEV)
5 Keep your eyes on the Lord!
You will shine like the sun
and never blush with shame.
6 I was a nobody, but I prayed,
and the Lord saved me
from all my troubles.
HOW ABOUT THIS ~
As we become closer to God, he changes the way we view things.
What was meant for harm, he will turn around. People do hurt us, disappoint us and leave us, but there is a flip side. Others will be there for us, encourage us to press forward and are friends forever. When you think of those who did you wrong, think about how God can turn the bad into good. We can forgive someone and no need to put them back into our lives. Let it go.....
Genesis 50:20-22 New International Version (NIV)
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. 21 So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children.” And he reassured them and spoke kindly to them.
Down the road of life, we learn and grow. We can certainly grow into a better person as life moves forward. I remember days of thinking it would never get better. Days of staying locked up in my house and crying. Day after day and I lost site of who I was in life. I had to forgive some people who I never wanted to forgive. I had to forgive them, so I could be forgiven and live again. I have always wanted to go to Heaven someday in the far future and I purpose to live the best life I can. When I truly forgave some people, I feel a joy in my soul. A sign that something was going to change. That something was me and I have become a much stronger confident woman in life.
Through the uglies of life, I have chosen to trust the Lord through it all. You never want to be someone in life because you just don't know their past. Some people grow stronger after hurts and some people give up. I hope you will be one who grows stronger in God and allow him to use your uglies of life too.
HOW ABOUT THIS ~
We live life the way God intended it to be. A joy beyond a human undemanding and peace too. Free will that takes me deeper in God. My choices are so important and I will do what he has called me to do in life. I love being a positive example to kids and adults. God is good all the time! I hope you can forgive others too and rest in knowing God has a bigger plan. Jeremiah 29:11 a plan, a promise and a future.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
