Living A Better Life

Living A Better Life…

Many times I have been approached by someone with a checkered past wondering how he or she could get a break in life and make a new start. My response has always been the past will always be a part of who we are, it’s how we feel about it that moves us forward.

Believe it or not we are not tied to our past, when your past steps up turn it around and make a lesson of it. Every experience we have in life, good or bad, contains a lesson for us. It’s what we do with these lessons that make us who we are. Some have made bad decisions and have paid dearly for them, but that too is a lesson. You have the power to take that part of your past and make a positive lesson of it to your life. You may have to work hard to prove yourself, but remember the goal you are working for, that makes it worthwhile. Many times we get ourselves in trouble because we chose to take the easier path rather than work for the goal we sought. The easiest path isn’t always the best path to take, for anything good is worth working for.

It’s when we realize the past has no power over you, it’s what you do with it that matters that we start to grow. When we can take a negative experience and turn it into a positive outcome, we begin to shine our light. God gave us the power to make things right and He is there to help guide us in the right direction if we ask for His help. That is the first step, the second step is we need to listen to what He has to say.

What He has to say… How many times have you turned something over to God only to step in and take it back figuring you just may be able handle it yourself. God does things in His time and if we aren’t listening to His whispers in our ear we may step on our self by not letting Him handle it. Grandfather was right when he told me we are given two eyes, two ears and one mouth for a reason. Listen more – talk less…

The past has no power over you, it’s what you do with it that matters. Use the lessons you have learned to make a better life for yourself. Shine your light for everyone to see!!

Walk daily with God at your side!!

Love always,

Ed
