If you could change anything in your life, what would you go back and change? I have often thought about that question earlier in my ministry. The thing is that you have to look at the bad with the good. If I could go back in time and change the fact that I got married when I was 17 years old, then I would no have my son. If I could go back and change the fact that I was in an abusive relationship for ten years, then I would not have had my lovely daughter. If I could go back in time to change anything in my past, then I would not have had the trials that have made me stronger. It is so true that what does not kill us, will make us stronger. For some reason women seem to have gotten the short end of the stick when it comes to life's issues. We bare children and because they are ours we will always provide for them. We somehow make a way for them. Even if we don't eat, we will make sure that they eat. It is very rare that a man will leave the home and take the children with him. It seems like it is a written law, that the children stay with mom. Not that we mind at all, it's just that no man ever says he will take the children. He seems to get off scott free.
I still say that God has made women much stronger than men. Because we have to bare and care for our children. He foreknew everything that we would have to go through. So I wouldn't want to change anything because then I would not have the knowledge of the Lord that I do have. Sometimes our trials puts us closer to the Lord. Your trials will lead you to trusting in the Lord. It doesn't matter how we get to Him, but we will eventually get there. Do you ever notice how many women and men are in the church. It is usually at least 70% more women than men. We got issues and we know where to go to get some help.
I have heard people use the term,"when one door closes, God will open another door". Think about this; sometimes the Lord has to close some doors in our lives so that it will keep the enemy out. Sometimes He closes the door on bad relationships, on abusive relationships, on emotions stress and on people that mean us no good. He will open another door, if you keep the other one close. If you keep opening the door that He closes, you will never get to the door that holds all your blessings.
Now my point to this is that there is always something that you can think about that will out way the bad. When you think about something that you have had to go through, think about what good came out of it. Anytime that you go through something, there is always a blessings waiting on the other side. I love each of you and I pray that the Lord is working on each of you and working out your trials to become trusting in Him. PRAISE GOD! AMEN!
If you are ever in need of me to pray with you personally, please don't let the enemy keep you from calling me 678-629-3179.
