August 2, 2011 Comments Off on Fixing Failures
When we look back on our life, we tend to remember the failures and disappointments more than the happy moments full of blessing. We remember all the things we wish we would have had, all the things that we thought would make us happy.
We remember the fights, the tears, and the stress of living with our families more than the thanksgiving meals and family outings. Whether it be the next day or the next twenty years later, we try to fill the void that we had in our past. We try to fix our current life from our past life.
But God isn’t interested in your past, He’s interested in your future. Jesus died to cover your past, so every moment you try to fix your past you insult the Savior that suffered through the crucifixion just for you.
He doesn’t want you to waste your words trying to be the mother you wish you had when you were a child. He isn’t interested in you wasting your finances on the clothes you think you deserved. He isn’t calling you to date the most attractive person out there to fill the void you feel about not feeling important.
God is calling you to be the person you need to be, when you need to be it. He’s calling you to say the things you need to say to the people that need to hear it, not waste words trying to fill the void in your own life. Here’s the thing: It was your disappointments, not theres. The things you try to fix aren’t even problems, but rather a costly time consumption lost to living your past in your present.
God is asking you to speak into someones life, not attempt to fix your own past. He’s calling you to speak the truth that they need to hear, not make an attempt at rectifying your own past failures and disappointments. God has the past covered, the future is yours to control to further the kingdom!
