Before we can get to where we need to be we must learn what it takes to get there. So I ask you…who are you and what are you meant to fulfill during your lifetime?
I want you to think long and hard about the following thinking about an (ingredient). How many uses do you or does it have? What purpose do you have or does it have to fulfill? How versatile can you be or what can your ingredient become?
I will give you a synopsis of my story, because, like you or someone you know I have been used, abused and attacked all because of nuts in and out of my life and mostly because of their circumstances. Yet, after countless trials and errors on my part I have become a new creation where I can stand stronger knowing God has my back and I seek him in all that I do now. I want to be the _______ or should I say I want you to use that perception in your life (make it your own) ingredient or recipe.
Creation – Life
We are all uniquely created! How would you feel if God did not create you?
Create – Your Worth
We all have worth and we are worth it! Is it all worth it? Yes!. Do you have everything you need? Do you have more than you need? Do you know of others that go without food? Is all the hard work and labor worth it? Yes!
Please create memories with your children so they will create pleasant memories for their children.
I truly hope the outcomes from the trials I had in my life will give you hope and strength. We all have a purpose to fulfill while we are on this earth in this body we call a human being. I know during hard times you have thought often… but, I didn’t ask to be born. We must move past that, being we cannot change that. We must realize it’s time to accept what we cannot change, and ask God so why am I here, why am I going through this or that? It’s because you were chosen by God, His plan of your birth took place prior to you being conceived. You might as well consider yourself the chosen one and that you have a purpose to fulfil. So, let’s live it out the best way we can. We need to stop all the bad things that have manifested in our families. We need to take our eyes off ourselves and think about the less fortunate. We need to set the example for others and be an example for others to follow. During our difficult times that will happen during our lifetime, we must know that we are here to fulfill a mission, we need to figure out our purpose and that means we must have faith and know that GOD has our best interest at heart. God knows where our destination will be. But, we need to trust Him in all and what we do. We need to pray during our daily trials that will transpire. Because, the devil is amongst us. How do you keep the devil away? Pickup your bible! Start reading and praying. The bible is our answer to everything. Live by it and in it. In spite of this, you did not trust in the Lord your God Duet. 1:32
I hope you are ready to hear about some of the trials that took place in my life. I call them trials because, you never will know the verdict till you go to trial and sometimes when you come out of the trial you still do not know. When you are in trial you are either innocent or guilty. My feeling now is you are guilty till proven innocent, that is why you are in a courtroom. Imagine Judgment Day, when God says I don’t know you. I know firsthand if we made good choices we wouldn’t be questioning ourselves as much. We are human beings living in a sinful world, we need to wear our armor each and everyday. The devil looks for our vulnerabilities. We may be committing sin and not even think much about it till you walk away or something bad happens. In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 1 Peter 2:9 If this is so, then the lord knows how to rescue the Godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment. Job 19:29 It is said, God stores up the punishment of the wicked for their children. Let him repay the wicked, so that they themselves will experience it Job 21:19
Should you trust others? Do you have all the facts? Do you have circumstantial evidence? Is it hearsay? Do you keep your thoughts in your head for a bit, pray about it, then speak up? Do you gossip? Do you put yourself in vulnerable situations? Does everyone have all the facts. There are people that watch, listen and hear what they are being told and not even know if it’s true or not.
I persecuted the followers of this Way to their death, arresting both men and women and throwing them into prison, as the high priest and all the councils can themselves testify. I even obtained letters from them to their associates in Damascus, and went there to bring these people as prisoners to Jerusalem to be punished. Acts 22:4-5
You never know when your life will start over but, it does start over, it starts over all the time. Why? Because, we choose to repent and ask for forgiveness. We must try and keep a positive attitude, by thinking today is a new day, all things are new in it! Amen! It’s a new day, meaning it is a fresh do over or start over! Everyday, is a fresh new start, because you can never say it is tomorrow, because in reality it is today. But, you can also choose to look and live your life in the rear view mirror, which means you won’t be moving forward. We must move forward in life, seeking and walking. We will not be running, because hastiness will cause havoc, I know that all too well. My father had a nickname for me, he would say slow down ‘hurricane’! Because, I would never do anything slow! Why follow directions? I had to learn how to slow down (took till my 40’s) otherwise, you may miss the turn you were supposed to take, or even lose direction, or your focus off to the path you are not supposed to follow, if you have no direction, or you choose to not stay on the right path your life may turn out like doorathee from whiz-herd of awhz, maybe that is why my life has been what it has been. I know the older we get we tend to have a mentally thought process of saying “I should of” or “could’ve” which is pure misery. If only I would have listened to my parents. Your parents are telling you this because of their life experiences trying to save you the pain. You will make many mistakes; causing you to make u-turns, hit bumps, even hit chuckholes, which leads to more damage and all because you didn’t want to listen to their advice. Advice is knowledge from experience!
Gain more of it! How do I get the strength to gain more knowledge? Where do I obtain knowledge? I recommend going on a mission trip where you can be a blessing to others. Having a vast amount of knowledge can go a long way our past started from scratch it’s never too late to start from scratch (start over) fresh new thoughts can and will become great things. Give it a try!
Do you need experience? Yes! If you have no experience you may need to seek it out through volunteering. Be unique try something different. Why hold out on learning more? What are the advantages and disadvantages?
