Always able to change

Last week I was talking to my brother (he and I rarely have a conversation, just busy schedules, nothing bad...) but we talked on my way home... and something was brought to my attention....

There was someone who had mentioned to him that they had messed up so much in their life, that they just didnt care how much more they messed up....

I just wanted to say that no matter what kind of mistakes you have made in the past it is all forgotten by God.
It's up to you though if you want to change and not make the same mistakes, or if you want to continute the same path that you are going down.
no one can make you change though... its all up for you to make that decision.

It doesnt matter how old you are or what kind of things you have done...

I have made plenty of mistakes, everyone has... but it's that moment when you make that decision to walk in a different light.
its that decision to turn towards God, and have Godly actions, rather than walking in the path of the world.

When you walk the ways of the world, you will never be completely 'satisfied' you will constantly be 'searching' for something... in the midst of your searching maybe you get into a group of people who party, and drink, or do drugs...or get into random relationships with someone, and end up sleeping together... at the end of it all...at the end of it all do you feel good about yourself? or are you still in a 'slump.'

a typical girl Good student, high grades, very talented... - who had alot of trouble at home the last few years of high school. she essentially gave up.. she didnt care about anything anymore, so she got in with a group of people when she got to college and began partying, and she stopped going to church, got into relationship after relationship. grades started dropping, and the partying continued..... she said that she 'gave up' - and that she wanted to go to church and become better, but what was the point since she had messed up so bad...

when you are so involved in worldly things, its hard to see clearly. You just want to focus on those things that give you that 'temporary high' - when in actuality it brings you down, and it sucks the life out of you.

WHen you turn from those worldly things, and turn towards God, and really begin to have a relationship with Christ, your life will change. and you wont care about the parties and other worldly things that you have been surrounding yourself with.

I cant tell you what to do. no one can, it's all up to you. You get to decide of which path to take. Just know that Jesus wipes away and it doesnt matter about what you've done in the past... just matters to have a relationship with him, and to love others around....
