Be Thankful for the Past

“Take advantage of every review of the past to remind yourself of the unbounded, limitless, and life-saving effects of the blood of Christ that was shed on Calvary for you.  It would be a colossal waste to spend this opportunity on regret and self-denigration.  This is a time when you can draw near to Me in genuine worship from the depth of your heart, says the Lord. Be thankful.”

2 Corinthians 4:15 “For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God”

~~~~~~~~

I’ll say it a thousand times, I’m thankful for my past. The trials, the pains, the life changing events, they have all shaped who I am now.

It is only by His blood that was shed for me and His tender love and grace, that I’m still walking this earth. He has shown me so much grace, that I never deserved. He says I deserve it because I’m His and that is a beautiful truth I keep tucked in my heart. Even on days when I’m just not feeling very loveable, that’s when He hugs me even tighter.

I’m so grateful for this life. For the people who have come into it and stayed and for those who have left. If life has taught me anything, it’s taught me to be kind, humble, loving and giving. It’s taught me it can be very cruel and very tough. But my God has taught me that no matter the roads I travel or no matter the events life seems to throw at me, I have to always put my hope and faith in Him. He will always lead me in the right direction.

Sometimes the road has twists and turns and hills but never stop believing that He can make your path straight again.

Thank you Lord for always shining the light on an otherwise dark tunnel, when I need you. You always show me mercy and grace and for that I’m eternally grateful. ❤
