Where have you been in life?
Have you heard someone tell you 'Today is the first day of the rest of your life?"
Did you even think about it as "the last day of your old life?"
I remember playing this game as a kid and all the different scenarios that were cropping up from losing your job to giving birth to twins. Talk about uncertainty in your game life.... it was certain to be uncertain.
So I am asking you now, "Where have you been in your real life?" What has made up the best parts of your journey? ...maybe your wedding day, or how about the day you bought your first car?
For some close family members I know they feel the negative things that have happened in their lives have produced the most growth and most blessings. The painful parts of our lives usually do bring the greatest growth and the purest joys once we realize we have emerged stronger and wiser. Learning from our own mistakes is the best way to strengthen our character. These family members would tell me the best in their lives were their lowest times. From those humble moments wisdom took seed.
So no matter what has brought you to this day, know it is part of God's plan that you are exactly where you are at this time. Gain wisdom from what is behind you and live forward in God's love.
Words of my heart,
It is to be with him, and he is to read it all the days of his life so that he may learn to revere the LORD his God and follow carefully all the words of this law and these decrees
