Today I am proud to introduce a guest blogger. My beautiful anointed wife Torrecca will share a thought that I know will bless you.
Life itself eventually leads us to a place where we must ultimately decide…… At this point, Will I allow life to continue to “break me” or will I begin to let it “make me”? Much of my life was spent broken, holding on to the past, wavering in the present and unsure about the future. But God! The deal is this; He knows the thoughts that he thinks toward us, thoughts of peace and not of evil to bring us to an expected end (Jeremiah 29:11). So with that being said, He knew who we were in the past, He knows who we are now, and He knows who He has called us to be in the future. Therefore, whether the consequences of negative circumstances in our lives were the results of things individuals have done/do to us or things we have done/do to ourselves; all things work together for the good of them who love the Lord and those who are call according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). We must grow up in the things of God; recognize the call on our lives and hold on to His promises made specifically for us.
Letting go of the past and embracing the promises that lead us to our purpose and destiny is truly a sign of maturity. Understanding, God is for us, it matters not who or what can be against us!!!
“Maturity is the ability to start again even when it hurts and the courage to stand in the midst of the pain”. © 2014 Torrecca Nicholson
How often have we seen a football player after being hit hard, jump right up as if it doesn’t faze him, and run back to the huddle? He may be hurt, but he doesn’t let his opponent know it. He does not give his enemy a target to go after on the next play. He continues to play in the midst of the pain. God has mapped out the course for our lives and the navigation system is His Word. When we choose to follow His plan and His way we are able to walk out our purpose with joy and peace. So even when we fall and it causes injury, we are able to get up and continue on the path set before us. You’re standing on a sure foundation, planted like a palm tree, not being moved, even when the winds try their best to blow you away (Psalms 1:3). Now, let’s walk in peace, joy and liberty, the finished work that is already ours. Whom the Son has set free is free indeed – Amen
