Don’t allow the guilt of your past or present to stop you from becoming all that the LORD wants you to be. Don’t allow regret, shame and sorrow to drain or hinder you from completing the will of God. He shall uplift, restore and vindicate you. No matter how great your sin or iniquity is, it is not greater than him. Repent and move forward. Dust off your shoulders and feet and keep it moving! Start over. As long as your breathing you still have a chance to get it right. You still have another opportunity to start fresh. There is no need to dwell on choices and decisions that you cannot change. No matter how unworthy we are, we should never give up on trying to get it right. We should not follow our flesh of how we “feel”. We should follow the spirit. The flesh will constantly remind us on how guilty and unworthy we are, but the holy spirit will say “I will use all of your shortcomings for my glory”. There is purpose in your pain. The enemy wants his voice to be louder than your creator. Remember he is the father of lies. That’s why its important to focus on God’s voice, despite what we may think of ourselves.
Be healed, whole and happy. Allow him to renew your mind and spirit. Allow him to reinvent and spark up your passion again. Allow him to pull and drive you to the road of purpose. The best is still yet to come. In order to help others, you must help your self. No one deserves his goodness, mercy and grace. No one can fully earn it. Take full advantage of his free gift of eternal life and walk towards the road of repentance; no matter how many times you messed up! Keep trying and going for you will overcome. Never stop trying my friend. In order to be effective to others, you must forgive yourself. Forgive and love yourself despite your shortcomings and impurities. Allow him to still use you as a vessel for his purpose. You are not alone. Watch him change you. No process is overnight, but he is there with you step by step.
Take time to heal from the pain, wounds and damage that you may have inflicted upon yourself, for you are still precious in his sight. 🌹🌷🌼🌻 Again do not drown in your sorrows or disappointments. The LORD is the safety float that can protect you from drowning. Allow him to build you back up and replenish your strength. #keepgoing #nopityparties #itsnevertoolate.
It is written in Micah 7:19 “He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea”.

in the wake of the two most recent shootings i am drowning in sorrow and despair and hopelessness and grief
i have tried and failed to start a group text conversation with my extended family about gun safety and what action we might take and common ground we might secure together
but i only make myself look weak and stupid
i am completely alone with my hopes for creating a better world together by simply following the Word
i don’t know if it is self-pity i am wallowing in but it’s not good, whatever it is
i appreciate what you wrote here: thank you
