Have you ever known people who were determined to self-destruct? People who don’t seem to learn from their mistakes? We all make mistakes, but our mistakes don’t make us failures. Whether or not we are smart and tough enough to learn from our mistakes will determine if we are fighters or failures.
If we keep repeating that same bad action or bad habit over and over again without learning a lesson from it, we are failures. If we correct our mistakes and don’t keep repeating them, then we are fighters and over-comers.
It’s pretty much that simple. Don’t keep complaining and wallowing in self pity if you keep doing the same ole thing and nothing changes. That’s insanity! You like it if you keep doing it! You must like the attention more than getting the breakthrough. Change if you need to or accept the misery you have chosen to create. You can’t have both!That is what I had to learn the hard way for myself. I couldn’t let my surroundings keep me depressed. I had to force myself to find something good to focus on. I chose to focus on God instead. If you wonder why you are having the same arguments year after year or why you are at the same place you were at 5 years ago, it’s because you haven’t made anything new or good happen in your life. Take responsibility. It’s not everybody else’s fault, it’s yours!
Essentially, you need to repent. The word of God tells us to repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand. Acts 3:19 says, “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” Yes, that means that we all need to confess that we have sinned and stop blaming others for our mistakes. Let God help you fix your mess. He will keep letting you try to fix it as long as you hold onto it. But, when you repent and confess that you screwed up, He will help you. The choice is yours.
