New You, Re-write your story

Do you have a story that you regret to tell? Do you wish to go back and change?  Some of you probably thinking you want rip of some pages of your story that you are ashame to tell. 

Well. you have a hope. Your life isn't over yet.

 "The decision you make today determines the story that you tell your future."

Sometimes we miss a great opportunity when we decide to walk away because it was hard to stay. Here is one example.
Exodus,18:17-19, Moses’ father-in-law replied, “What you are doing is not good.  You and these people who come to you will only wear yourselves out. The work is too heavy for you; you cannot handle it alone. Listen now to me and I will give you some advice, and may God be with you. You must be the people’s representative before God and bring their disputes to him."

Many times, the hardest thing you do brings the better fruit.
Play the story forward: Look at what you are doing and play it forward. Where will this road take you?
If you don't stop what you are doing, you don't know how much it would cost you:
1: Stop nagging your husband, because you want your way. He will walk away.
2: Stop judging your kids, instead they will find wrong person to love them.
3: Stop eating food that is not good for you, if not you may not be there for your children wedding or graduations.
4: Stop looking the Internet/TV that would lead you to stop loving your spouse.
5: Stop overspending, you will be saying to your child, sorry you can't go to this school because we can't afford it.
6: Stop having sex if you aren't married.
7: Stop making excuse how tired you are and you don't have time to read The word of God, that can be one thing you need for God to change your life.
8: Stop hanging out with people that aren't walking right with God.
Play forward whatever you are doing and see where is it going and what would cause you if you continue. I love the story of Daniel in the lion's den. He was a man of integrity. The king promote him, God showed him favor. Years ago, Daniel prayed three times a day. This result started years ago, he made a decision to talk to His God, His author of his story.
Did you know He is the author and the perfecter of our faith. You can stop anything by the power of His might.

1 John 4:4, "Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world"
Fix your eyes on Jesus. Ask Him to re-write your story, be obedient to His word. This is not "New year resolution", it will be "life changing."
Your life isn't over yet, you can allow God to re-write your story.

Make that decision today, don't let another day go by.

I wrote this last week knowing I will be fasting this week. I am trying to minimize my time from the Internet. I am praying God's hand to move in our community, country and nation. Join to pray if God led you.

Blessings to you and I would love to pray for you.

  2. Praying for you as you fast Sara! What a great post full of hope and conviction all at once. HE can re-write your story. I love the idea of playing it forward.

Don't live in regret...always pray through it and discern what is best and worthy of HIM. :)

  5. This was a needed post. Thank you for sharing. I like the thought that God can re-write my story. I like that way of looking at some of the things in my youth...that God re-wrote my story. Thankfully or I would have headed down an entirely different path. Praise God!! Thank you Sara.
