I am not what I want to be. I am not what I should be. I am not what I one day will be. But, thank God, I’m not what I once was.
From the moment we are born, we start our journey through life, initially knowing nothing. However each moment we spend on earth the more we learn from those around us, and from our environment. Some of what we learn is good for us and will help us in life, other things will not helps us be all we can be.
Even if we’re lucky enough to be taught about God from an early age, it doesn’t mean we automatically become able to choose the best path for our life. However, regardless of whether we were taught about God from an early age, or have just recently become aware of Him, we can be assured that God is with us, and, if we ask Him, He will help us make the correct choices in our life and make us better people.
Personally I grew up in a family where although my Dad isn’t a Christian, my Mum was and therefore I was aware o God and taught about God from an early age. But just like everyone else, I have made many many mistakes and done some things I’m not proud of, however I believe that because I have asked God into my life, He has forgiven me for all the things I have done wrong, and has helped me be the person I am today.
I am definitely not saying I am perfect now because God has helped me! I am simply saying that because God is helping me, I now live a more Christian life, however there is still huge room for improvement on my part!
I trust God to help me become a better person, a better Christian, I pray that you too will put your full trust in God, so that that He can help you too to be all He needs and wants you to be.
