We all mess up
Jose’ died during the night. He is with Jesus. One of our children who was adopted to the US died last week so it is doubly painful.
Dottie’s eye examination for macular degeneration showed improvement.
There was a shooting at the hospital Jose’ was in & 7 were killed. Four gang members were captured!
Gretchen is in the states & Brandi leaves this weekend.
To make the right choices you must first ask God for wisdom. (James 1:5-8) All godly wisdom comes from above. If you do not ask until you are in a bind then you have make a grace error. Secondly, seek godly counsel. (Proverbs 11:14). Surround yourself with people who love you, hear God and are not afraid to tell you the truth.
Thirdly, read the Word and get directions. It is foolish to travel this life without God’s road map.
What if you messed up? Do what Lot did and obey. He left Sodom. Do what Peter did. He repented and began to serve. Third do what Paul did. He accepted forgiveness and began to live for Christ.
We all will mess up. We all fall short. But if we are serious about used of God there are ample illustrations in the Bible of those who made a mess of things but got it together and lived a fruitful and satisfying life.
