The Boldest Man On The ‘Net Lance Scurvin (http://www.LanceScurv.com/), shares a few words with anyone who may need encouragement if they happen to be going through a crisis.
Never allow anyone to attempt to define you by your past bad choices or decisions as though THAT is the final assessment of what your life mission was all about!
We ALL have gone down a road at one time or another that may not have been the best road to travel when looking back, but nonetheless our lives were given to us to continue to grow and manifest the glorious talents and abilities that our Creator has placed deep within us to help others throughout our lives.
One dark chapter in the book that has been our life story does NOT define the entire story! When anyone tries to bring you down with a tale from your past that you may have wanted to disappear, tell them that your story isn’t finished being written yet and watch the subsequent chapters being written by YOU with the help of God and look what an inspiration and testimony it will be!
Those bad chapters are necessary to being able to reach those who find themselves in that dark place right now! who else is better equipped than YOU to go out there and make a difference? You’ve been there done that and THAT in itself is all of the credibility that you need to reach the masses in those worlds when the naysayers who bring up your distant past aren’t doing a DAMN THING!
