You may or may not have seen the new face app which people seem to have been trying the past few weeks, or at least that was the first I heard of it. So I thought I'd give it a go and see what everyone was going on a about.
Well here's the result. Needless to say it doesn't make me look like I will grow old gracefully. But reality is this is not what I will look like when I get older, because I sure didn't look like the younger version when I was younger.
I wonder how many of us are going through life looking at it through a lens like this? Seeing things as they are not in reality. I'm not talking about what it talks about in the Bible seeing things that are not, as though they are, no that's seeing things through a lens of hope and faith. But how many of us are the past as some rose coloured thing or some dreadful experience which we either wish we were still in or wish we never went through and then see the future as something to be dreaded or something that will never change.
Never change? How can you be sure it won't? Probably the closest you can get to hot seeing your future change and you grow, is by making up your mind that you won't change and you can't and saying it will always be this way, because it always has been.
Always?????? Are you sure? Always is a long time and it means always so not even one time when something was different? What if it took just one difference in a supposed set pattern to find the key to unlock the future and create a new pattern?
What is a pattern that you think you will never change? You can change it. Maybe it's time to find the key and unlock your future. You can be different. You don't have to repeat what was.
Learn from what was. Change what is. Mold what could be. Break what may be. Conquer what wanted to be. Heal what had been. And celebrate what will be.
Every victory of your future will be a result of the battles you've learnt to fight, let go and trust God in. Because when we learn to trust we can learn that it's not about how tight we hold the past but how tight our Father in heaven holds us.
Don't ever forget what he says. Because his voice is the only one that matters. Let it speak louder and if necessary turn off the loud noises so you can hear him.
Your future is in your hands. Shape it and don't let anything hold you back.
