“But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you…The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail. Moreover all these curses shall come upon you and pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you. And they shall be upon you for a sign and a wonder, and on your descendants forever.” ~Deuteronomy 28:15, 43-46
“Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations’? But you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’ ” ~Mark 11:17 (Isa 56:7)
“The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein.” ~Psa 24:1
We all have a past, some happy & some no much. Regardless of what we have done, that does not define us as a person; as we can all change! See your past as a series of learning moments to hone your skills & dreams for your future!
It was once said that Thomas Edison did not see his “10,000 failures” to create the light bulb as failures, but rather as 10,000 attempts that didn’t work…the 10,001st attempt was the winning combinations.
In essence, your past does not equal your future. If it did, perhaps Mr. Edison would have stopped after 500, 1000, or 2000 attempts. And perhaps it would still be dark at night, hmmmmm…
