In general, I think most people learn best from their mistakes, but it is always nice when I don’t have to learn lessons the hard way. This month at the “AMH” website the contributors were asked to write a letter to their “past” or “future” self. It didn’t take me long to figure out what I would write to my “past” self.
This letter is a gift and will probably change your life and save you a lot of pain if you let it. I know right now you are struggling with your relationship with the Lord, and because of that fact you are not in a great place in your marriage. Just know that things will get better as the Lord is for you and He will never leave you. However, before I close this letter I want to share some words of wisdom that the Lord has taught me over the past 17 years. If you really take them to heart, it will change your life.
Right now, I know that married life is hard and at times all you can see is what is wrong with “Aaron” (hubby). Aaron is a flawed man, as you are a very flawed woman (that might be a shock to you at this stage). Very soon you will come to a place of desperation and you will cry out to God and beg for His help. He will answer you and you will begin a new journey with Him. During this time, God will speak to your heart and tell you that you need to stop worrying about trying to change Aaron and to work on changing yourself. It is time for you to take a look in the mirror and allow God to show you the truth about yourself, even when the truth is hard and ugly. It will change your life in the best way possible.
God is the only one that can truly change your heart, and know that He will also change the heart of Aaron, but for now take your focus off Aaron and put it on God. He will do amazing things in your heart and in the heart of your future family. Remember these words from the Bible…
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
