Your Past Does Not Determine Who You Are
Brethren your past should not determine who you are, everything is hard before it is easy (Ecclesiastes 7:8). So, pray and fast harder than yesterday if you want a different tomorrow. You can’t reach for anything new if your hands are full of yesterday’s clutter. When you start seeing your worth, you’ll find it harder to stay around people who don’t. so, stop planting flowers in people’s yards who aren’t going to water them (1 Corinthians 15:33).
Nothing is worth more than this day. You cannot relive yesterday. Tomorrow is still beyond your reach. So, make the most of today with what you got tomorrow might be too late, even for the talented.
Remember to think it is easy but to act is hard. But the hardest thing in the world is to act in accordance with your thinking. Your past does not determine who you are. Your past prepares you for who you are to become. You can’t change how people treat you or what they say about you. All you can do is change how you react to it (Romans 8:28-Joseph&David). Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes. Life is 10% of what happens to you, and 90% of how you react to it.
Some people cross your path and change your whole direction (Genesis 30:27). Brethren we should be ready to bring out the good in other people. Keep people in your life that truly: love you, motivate you, encourage you, inspire you, enhance you, and make you happy. If you have people who do none of these things. let them go. Don’t be afraid to do something just because you’re scared of what people are going to say about you. People will judge you no matter what but don’t be afraid of being different be afraid of being the same as everyone else.
Opinions aren’t facts. Stop worrying about what people think about you. No one can make you happy until you’re happy with yourself first. Remember life has no remote control, so get up and change it yourself otherwise no prophet or church will.
