It’s true that we all slip up sometimes. We make choices and later we realize were wrong, wish we had done things differently, or feel worthless. Our past does not define us, as long as we are sorry for it. All it takes is two little things, to ask forgiveness and to correct our behavior. Jesus gave us freedom from our past with His death on the cross, but it must be with an honest heart.
We are unique, timeless in Christ, and chosen by the one and only true living God. We are survivors, warriors, peacemakers, and sometimes healers of the heart with our words, love, and kindness.
Through life though, we hurt, even with our trust in God. Though we trust Him we may still question, why? Why is God letting this happen, why has He not brought justice, why do I feel like He has left my side, and why does He always treat me like I am stronger than what I really am?
As we go through hard times, hard lessons, and times where we didn’t fight quite like we should have, He is teaching us. He lets us see the outcome of our choices. Everything has consequences, good and bad. Not one person is immune from the turn out of a choice made. He lets us make these choices on our own because of free will, love, and to help us grow. We learn and when we face something similar in the future, we are stronger to handle it. Our soul is timeless in Christ, we will forever be happy one day with Him, but we have to learn how to grow, how to be strong against the enemy. We have to let God take us apart so He can create the warrior He wants us to be. Though things may be tough, and you feel as though you are drowning with no help from above, remember this, God is right there and if you start to go fully under, He is only an arm’s length away. We are all in His hands.
