“Look! I’m doing a new thing; now it sprouts up; don’t you recognize it? I’m making a way in the desert, paths in the wilderness.” Isaiah 43:19 CEB
- I have had countless experiences when I totally messed up and felt so awful afterwards
- My hang-ups were too many to mention
- My faults were ever before me
- Overthinking left me feeling drained and empty.
- Sins – too many to count
Inspite of all the unfinished stuff in my life – I thank God …His ORGINAL plan for my life has NEVER changed inspite of the many road bumps I met along my journey.
One thing I’m confident about – I’m not the person I used to be. Every day I live to see another day gives me the satisfaction that I’m growing and changing.
There’s no such thing as a perfect person, a perfect home, a perfect spouse, a perfect child – if we demand perfection of ourselves or the people in our lives we will be most miserable for the rest of our lives. Nobody’s perfect.
So let’s be patient with OURSELVES and OTHERS as God isn’t finished with either of us YET.
I remind myself that I am still a work in progress. I don’t lose hope in myself as I’m on a journey and have not reached MY final destination.
My Master has no anxieties while working on me until He gets me into the shape He has carefully designed for my life. I may not see the daily changes but when I look back at the yesteryears …. I know that I’m not the same person I used to be ….
Just when the caterpillar thought it was over, it became a butterfly. The woman I was in the past has helped me to become the courageous woman I am today.
Once HOPE is alive in you – tomorrow will always remain exciting. Some days will be amazing, some days will be awful… so stay positive and count the blessings and not the curses.
Life is all about perspective. The darker the night – the brighter the stars look. The Wise Men followed the star on the darkest night and found The Light. Be positive. Stay strong. Get enough rest.
When you and I start believing in ourselves – miracles happen! Jesus loves me just as I am with no great expectations ….He already paid the price in full for me. I’m no longer a slave to people’s opinions. Nothing’s holding you and I from achieving our greatest dream.
