My Future Is Not Canceled Out Because of My Past

efyj_quote_020917

From the moment that I gave birth to my son at the age of 20, I knew that I was born to be a mom. Life didn’t make sense anywhere else, except for in the role God had assigned and blessed me to uphold as a mother. Regardless of the misguided decisions in my relationships, the generational strongholds that had me bound and the stumbling and falling; each day God’s grace and mercy intervened and the blessings and requests that should have been withheld, were still granted.

The future that God promised my family and me hasn’t ever been canceled out because of the decisions of my past. I rejoice and praise Him continuously when I think of that very thing.

There is so much gratefulness that consumes my soul, when I reflect on the fact that even when I’ve done things that the Lord despised, He never took His love away. I promise you, that I have learned how to love AND forgive myself and others, because of the example set forth by Jesus. Through it all, God reveals to us in the lessons that we experience, that He keeps on loving us no matter what we encounter or what we do.

Because of the love God demonstrated by sending His only begotten Son to die for our sin debt; there is nothing from my past that the blood of Jesus doesn’t cover.

God’s Word guarantees that I will be victorious and that NOTHING can separate me from His love, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8: 38-39).

Be Blessed My Encouragement for Your Journey Family!!
