2 Corinthians 5:17
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
What goes through your mind when you flip through your old photo albums or when you see your baby photos?
I don\’t know about you, but I laugh ( a lot at myself) whenever I see them; and sometimes I smile a bit as I try to remember what it was like in those days—I believe am not the only one who does this. Anyway. Behind the laughter and smiles, there is one thought we all like to push away when we go through our old albums or baby photos; and the reason we push this thought away is that, we feel there is nothing we can do about it.
When this thought emerges, we begin to hate ourselves or someone from our past; we begin to wish we could turn back the hands of time; we sometimes become depressed, shed a few tears and pray for way out of the bondage we may find ourselves in.
Why? Because we were all born as innocent babies, and many of us never thought we would become or do some of the things we did -and still do-when we grew up. Things we now regret; things we want to run away from; things we want solutions to, and this makes us want miss the old us. The person we believe we were born to be.
Have you ever wished you could be that person you used to be?
Have you ever wished you could be that innocent, happy person once again?
A new person or creature, a better person, God\’s original plan for you; is this what you want?
