We’ve all made mistakes. We’ve said the wrong thing at the wrong time, or perhaps we did something that is just too difficult or painful to talk about. I’m confident you can relate to this. We’ve all had setbacks in our yesterdays. But your past doesn’t define your future. Some people overcome their mistakes, leave them in the past and move on to the great things God has for them. But I’ve found that, unfortunately, some people don’t. They get trapped in their mistake. They can’t get past it. The burden of what they’ve done wrong (or what’s been done wrong to them) often becomes so powerful that it dominates their past, their present and their future.
I’m reaching out to you today in hopes of you hearing.. God doesn’t want you to live this way. He created you to be an overcomer. If you will look for His comeback plan, there’s no mistake or setback that can keep you down. God wants to lift you up!
Here’s what the apostle Paul writes in Romans: “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect” (Romans 12:2 NLT).
I love this phrase: “…let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.” That’s amazing. If you’ll let this new attitude form your thinking, God will lift you up out of your current circumstances and bring you into the amazing purposes and plans He’s prepared just for you. I am challenging you to make this your mindset. Victoria and I want you to know how grateful we are for you. Your generous support and faithful prayers encourage us to be a voice of hope around the world.
Remember, it’s time to change your thinking and invite God to transform your life. God’s purposes and plans are so much greater than any mistake or setback from your past.
