It Is NOT Luck…

As I get older I realize that there are things I can’t remember

and other things I’d like to forget…

There are places I’ve not had the pleasure to explore and people I haven’t seen in a long time of whom I’d like to visit… I realize that some of these things may not come to pass in this lifetime…and that’s okay…

Some people say that if they could go back in time in their lives they wouldn’t change a thing…I used to feel that if I could, I would…I really used to battle this…It even got to the point once where I was trying to remember people I had said or had done hurtful things to so I could go back and tell them I was sorry…in that moment the Lord spoke to me and said, ‘’What are you doing??”…He stopped me and told me, “I am working in their lives just as I am working in yours.”

When we are young its seems as though we have the tendency to base everything on emotions…feelings

Feelings of love, feelings of pain…

Feelings of joy, feelings of shame…

Emotions run our lives…

If we’re up, things are good…if we’re down, things are bad…GALATIANS 5:16-24

Life runs like it’s supposed to when He’s running it…But only when we let Him…EPHESIANS 5:15-18

The Lord doesn’t have to second guess and wonder if He could have or should have done things better…because He’s perfect and doesn’t make mistakes…

You and I are not mistakes…He doesn’t base things on random chance…”Luck”  

Everything has purpose and meaning…We have purpose and meaning because we were made to His perfection…

When we are living for His Purpose and His Plan we can feel safe and secure…

We can count on Him…He Loves us so much and He gives us back so much more than we deserve…

With Him there is Peace and Joy….Everlasting Peace and Joy…!!! ROMANS 15:13

With Him I can do All things…I’m always a winner…PSALM 55:22

Without Him I can do nothing that is of any lasting value…MATTHEW 6:20

As time goes by I’m learning to lean on Him more and more, for without Him I am weak and shaky…1 PETER 5:6-7

The Lord is imprinting on me the value of commitment…MATTHEW 16:24

Commitment isn’t based on what we have or do not have…

Commitment is not based on how we feel or do not feel… 

It doesn’t run on roller coaster emotions…

But, Commitment does have compassion…

Commitment does look at what it can do for others more than oneself…

Commitment does learn that it’s best to wait on some things because running ahead can be dangerous…

I used to sing,  “Only love can break your heart”…

The truth is, He works well with broken hearts…PSALM 147:3

The world judges and scars us from the outside…

The Lord forgives and heals from the inside…

Without God some never change…

With God Everyone changes…

I have talked with people at the end of their life who are full of regrets…

We can’t change our past or control our futures…but, we can give our lives to God and He can and will direct our path…and that’s a choice that we never will regret…

He wants more for us than we could ever conceive of in this lifetime…

It’s worth it…

He’s worth it…HE BELIEVES YOU ARE WORTH IT…!!!

PSALM 139:15

EPHESIANS 1:4

JAMES 1:18
