Your Future is not Defined by Your Past.
I heard somebody say, “Do not let your heredity stop your destiny.” In other words, do not let the way somebody treated you, or what they did or did not give you keep you from pressing forward and becoming all that God has created you to be.
The people who raised you may have had addictions, but that doesn’t have to be your future. People who raised you may have been poor. People who may have raised you might have been abusers.
You can be the one to break that negative cycle. Your parents may have had anger issues or never amounted to much, but you do not have to keep letting that curse be passed from generation to generation.
You can be the one to say, “No more. This is a new day! I may have had an unfair past, but I’m not going to have an unfair future. I know He put a blessing on me before anybody could put a curse, and I’m not going to let my heredity stop my destiny.”
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
You might have grown up in a very poor environment. You might have no money, no education and no future to speak of. You think you are destined for poverty, defeat and mediocrity.
You could allow your situation to settle there or you can dust yourself up and make something better out of impossible situation.
Life is not for the faint hearted.
Today, no matter what has happened in your past, remember that ultimately, you can re-direct your life for greatness. You can let go of the wrong direction of the world and renew your mind. Never allow yourself to be the prisoner of your past. It was just a lesson not, a life sentence.
