Good Morning my friends
Have you ever thought about what your life would be life “IF ONLY” you would’ve become dependent upon God as a teenager? Where would you be now? How would have my life been different? When I look back on my crazy life, I can’t help but think that I would be in a much different place.
Don’t get me wrong, there’s no way I would trade where I am in my life today for anything.. I would just like to know where me, Keri & my boys would be if I would’ve done things differently. I’m not saying I’ve had it such a bad life because trust me I know there are people that have had a much tougher life than myself. In fact, I know people that would’ve loved to have had my life thus far.
My ups & downs in life have been self inflicted. It was the result of my poor choices that has damaged the trust of my family. It was me doing what I wanted to do that made me happy that made my family feel at times they weren’t the most important thing in my life.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
IF ONLY my choice would’ve been to follow God’s Word instead of choosing fall in to temptation. IF ONLY my choice would’ve been to spend time with my family talking & reassuring that they were the important to me instead of bringing my work home. IF ONLY I would’ve surrendered to the ministry 20 years ago and started serving God then instead of running away hiding from Him like Jonah. IF ONLY….IF ONLY…IF ONLY…
My life would’ve been certainly different but on the other-hand I believe that God knew what was going to take place and now He has me in the right place at the right time. He knew who would be in my life at this time and what they would need to hear. My path would’ve have been much different but my testimony would be different as well. I wouldn’t be able to share and be transparent with my ups & downs, temptations, thoughts & feelings, & blessings.
Jesus said, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God ; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?” (John 14:1-2)
My CHALLENGE prayer for YOU!! Trust God with His perfect plan for your life..
I pray that YOU have a TERRIFIC day. Blessings & much love…. D
Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!!
