Let’s say you want to bake a cake and you discover you have the right ingredients, but the wrong recipe. What do you do? It’s OK to say goodbye to the recipe but you don’t have to throw away the ingredients. Just begin again with the same ingredients but a new recipe.
It’s the same way in life. You are the ingredients; you are a triune being. You are a spirit, you live in a body and you have a soul. And your life is the recipe. As you know recipes can change depending upon where you live, how you were raise and personal taste. When you start out in life as a baby and you grow into adulthood, your taste in life changes. The type of people you hung out with as a teenager, you may not want to hang out with them in your thirties. The things you did that you once thought were so cool and daring, as you get older you may think “that was crazy!” It’s OK to begin again at different stages in your life. Some things (and people) are better left in the past so that you can have a fresh start in life.
The Apostle Paul penned “…forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.” (Philippians 3:13) Don’t allow yourself to miss out on this one beautiful life we have been given because you are stuck in your past and can’t move forward. If your life is not as fulfilling as you would like for it to be, get a hobby, find new friends, go back to school, change your job or choose a new career. But don’t stay stuck. It’s your life…Begin again!
