LIVING PAST YOUR MISTAKES
Today, I want you to know that you can live past your Mistakes. Don’t allow your Past to Hold you hostage and hinder you from achieving your dream or pursuing your passion. Its Time to live Beyond your mistakes and be everything that you were created to be. Determine in your spirit that I will not short change myself and experience LESS; when I was created for MORE.
Your Mistakes should accelerate you into your destiny and NOT hold you back.
YOU ARE GREATER THAN YOUR MISTAKE.
COOKIES GONE WRONG – LIVING PAST YOUR MISTAKES – DEVOTION
Most people, who know me, know that I love and enjoy baking. So, this month I have been baking for daily prayer meetings at my church. It so happened that yesterday, I simply messed up. I put an ingredient that wasn’t part of the recipe to substitute an ingredient I didn’t have. The scones tasted horrible least to say. I remember feeling a little downcast as to how I could have made such a mistake. Pretty much no one managed eat them (one bite was enough) because they were that bad…lol. Me being me, I resolved in my heart not bake for a bit (taking a break- I called it) until I could courage up and bake again.
Isn’t it sad how a small mishap can cause us to give up on what we truly love to do? God used this experience to teach me something important- He said that, “in life you are not always going to be perfect. You will make some mistakes – lots of them. But making mistakes shouldn’t define who you are but challenge you to do better if not learn something from it”.
YOU ARE GREATER THAN YOUR MISTAKES. DO NOT ALLOW YOUR MISTAKES TO HOLD YOU HOSTAGE. LEARN FROM THEM, MOVE FORWARD AND DO WHAT YOU LOVE.
Mistakes sometimes just remind us that we are human (we aren’t perfect) BUT we need GOD (whose perfect) to complete us. Dear friends, please don’t allow your mistakes to create mountains out of a small stone that you can simply kick to the side and keep moving. Even if the world, your friends, your family, your co-workers…etc fail to accept your mistakes – We serve a God who loves us beyond our mistakes and through His Love for us we become better and more like him. May this be an encouragement to you – Don’t give up on a dream, a passion, a vision simply because of one or two mistakes.
MISTAKES HAPPEN, BUT THEY SHOULDN’T DEFINE YOU AS A PERSON OR DICTATE YOUR LIFE.
Am I still going to bake? Yes I certainly am
Am I afraid? – Yes I am – But I will bake anyway. Even If I make more mistakes- eventually I will get it right.
Take a moment to revisit the areas in your life where the enemy has lied to you. Told you -you were a failure – that you should just give up – that you should just take a break. Whatever the lie the enemy has told you – It has no power over you unless if you allow it to. I encourage you to stand up for yourself and fight for your dream, passion, whatever it maybe – Do whatever it takes to do what you love with out fear. I believe you can do it – Do you believe?
I pray this encouraged someone today 🙂
- I refuse to be held hostage by my past mistakes
- I refuse to be a prisoner of unrealistic perfectionism
- I choose to accept Me for Me and love myself
- I choose to fight for what’s important to me
- I choose to fight for my dream, my vision, my passion – to fight for what I love against all odds.
Lord I thank you for this loved one who’s reading this devotion. I pray that you give them the courage to keep on keeping on even when they have made a mistake or failed at something. Help them to realize that their mistakes don’t define them. I pray that you give them their bounce back and the confidence back. Lord I pray you help them to look to you always and remember that they are “More Than Conquerors” and that “They Can Do Anything Through CHRIST who gives them strength” – In Jesus name, I Pray – AMEN
Be Blessed and Stay Encouraged!
