So often we live our lives just for the sake of living it. We don’t exactly know how but we just do it, day by day we try, sometimes harder just to get through the day. Carpe Diem, such a common phrase for the onlookers and YOLO for some, these have become our usher to living the life we think and most of us thought we are suppose to live . We get so focused on “living” that we forget how to be a human being, we forget that we have a purpose, each and every one of us. And because of these undiscovered purpose we try to fill the void by doing the things that will only cost us more, invite more circumstances leaving us broken. When something so unthinkable happen, this will either put a person back to perspective or the other way around. These happenings, no matter how awful they may seem brings with them new beginnings and so many second chances in any area of our lives. The result will now depend on how we respond to each and every occurrence. Some get it fast but some will need more time, but actually, after a very long time, if it keeps going, these eventuality will in due course shape the person. You don’t realize it at first but it’s happening, it happens every second. You now feel life for the first time, love, the sense that you belong somewhere and to someone very Devine.
Now that you know you are a new creation, you will never ever let inconveniece and difficulty stop you from living the life you’ve always been created to live. Just don’t stop looking at the one who created you, by fixing your eyes on Jesus you will discover more about yourself than you did twenty, thirty years ago. You will make a mistake it’s a given, and unfortunately, the critics and naysayers will come out of the woodwork. People will tell you, “You’re all washed up. It’s too late.” If you wear that label, it will keep you from the amazing future God has in store. You might need to fight through a crowd. You might need to get three of your friends to lower you through a hole you cut in the roof. Whatever it is, do it. God says, “My mercy is bigger than any mistake.” God says, “I can still get you to your destiny.” God says, “I will give you beauty for those ashes. I’ll pay you back double for the unfair things that have happened.” You wouldn’t be alive unless God had another victory in your future. Why don’t you take off the “washed up” label? Take off the “failure,” “guilty,” “condemned” labels and put on some new ones: redeemed, restored, forgiven, bright future, new beginning. You are just where God purposed you to be beloved.
