can you try?

Let your dreams and not your regrets control your life. Let your actions be determined by the future you desire and not by the ugly past that can no longer be un-done. Apostle Paul said: “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended but this one thing I do. Forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forth unto those things which are before. (Philippians 3:13)”.

Can you try? Try to focus all your energies on one thing, forgetting all your past and looking forward to what is ahead of you?

Life is made up of three seasons: the past, the present and the future. The past speaks of the season we have already experienced. The present speaks of that which we are experiencing at the moment and the future speaks of that which lies ahead of us. The future is the most important season amongst the three seasons because the future is the only season of your life that you still have 100% influence over. Your past is already gone and the present is already determined but your future is yet to come. It is not late.

Can you try? Try to direct the future the way you choose to?

Whatever your past was, it can never be reversed. There are limited things you can do to change the present but in your hand lies all that you need to determine what your future will be. Unfortunately, many people are denied the future they desire because of their past allowing the past to rob them of their future.

The future is not guaranteed when you are still holding on to your past. For there to be today, yesterday has to give away. Someone once said, ‘you can’t have a better tomorrow if you are still thinking about yesterday all the time.’ This is why the future is the most important season.

Can you try? Try to remove the gear of your life from reverse mode?

It is impossible for a vehicle to move forward while on reverse gear. As long as you still allow your past to have a hold on you, you are operating your life on a reverse gear and you will never be able to move forward. So take charge! You are the master of your fate and the captain of your soul.

Can you try to believe God knows what he is doing even if it’s not working out now and he just needs you to try.



So can you try?

God bless you. If you need me to pray for you, you can always send me a mail and darling, talk to God about it; about how hard trying to move forward is. He listens to everything.

    Hmmm! Jesus truly makes everything possible. That’s why he said we should first his kingdom. To me, seeking his freedom is giving it all to him and the amazing thing is he makes it all worth it.

    Thank you for stopping by.
