It’s All Good

October 31, 2012

There are times in life when I wished I had never taken the advice of others; but what can I say, what’s in the past is in the past.  The reason why most of us cannot move forward is because we are stuck in the past.  Dawning on “what ifs” and “if only(s)”.  It gives us great relief to blame somebody else and not wanting to take the responsibilities ourselves.  Just remember this: When you point one finger at someone, the other three are pointing right back at you. 

I understand that some of things are out of our control, but most of what happens to us, we bring on ourselves by not “listening”.  Not listening first of all to God.  But how can you listen to God if no one told you about Him.  How can you listen to God if you never went to Church, or you went to Church and did not understand what the Preacher was talking about?  The latter happened to me.

I went to Church on most Sunday’s as a little girl, but no one ever told me I had to accept Jesus as my Lord and personal Savior.  No one ever told me that I needed to listen to His still voice and remain obedient.  I never knew how to love or to accept someone loving me.  Truth be Told, I was bitter, stayed angry all the time, and did not want any close relationships.

Was I deemed a failure?  Maybe, but for the most part, I was lost.  It was nothing for me to blame someone else for my failure or lack of wisdom.  Hey, it wasn’t my fault no one told me how to live my life according to His purpose. 

One bright and sunny morning, I got up and looked at myself fully in the mirror.  Wondering, why am I the way I am?  Out of nowhere, I received my answers which were:

  1.  You are selfish
  2. You are sarcastic
  3. You are of a jealous nature
  4. You are quick to blame someone else
  5. You never listen to Me
  6. You never talk to Me

Wow, I thought, I am a horrible person.  No, I wasn’t horrible; I was just lead down the wrong path by listening to other people’s advice and not seeking God first.  The answers I received where all “convictions”.  We are loved by God first…He loves us no matter how disobedient and a wreck we are in our lives.  He will tell us what we need to do in order to be blessed. 

Failure is now something I look at as Spiritual growth.  God is trying to tell me something.  But, if we give up because of failure, we will never know what God had planned for us.  As of now, you may be going through changes in your life, count it all “good” because He is working.
