Wisdom from LaTersa Blakely

Allow your pain to become your message!

We all have a past and there is nothing you can do about it. You can’t turn back the hands of time. What you can do is take the lessons that you’ve learned and pass them on to someone else.

Your past does not dictate your future. Allow what happened to you in the past to make you a better person. Instead of looking back in your past with regrets, think of what you gained and be willing to use them to make your life better.

Remember that you will not receive a testimony without going through a test. In life there will always be trials and tribulations but it should allow you to reach a higher level in your life.

Everybody has a past or something terrible that has happened to them, but in every situation, you can allow it to break you or make you a better person. Sometimes, it may cause you to make a few detours in life, but your destiny is never tied to your past. You have to just go through it. It will not be an easy one, but I promise you, the journey will be well worth it….Continue reading at InspireMeToday.com.

Each one of us has its own distinct destiny to follow. We are here to learn and become a better person. We all go through pain for a reason. Pain makes us better and stronger.

If a tree bends in the wind hopefully it will not break. Most of us who have had difficult lives wouldn't choose that however one needs to make the best out of any situation.
"All things work for good for those who love God and Walk according to His purpose." Romans 8:28 And so He can make good come out of evil.

I use Stevia, which is a natural plant; I have it in powdered form or Agave' in liquid form,
also natural product. They have zero- very little calories, Aspartamine, I personally

Bless you, La Tersa; I continue to struggle in one area of my life!! Your comments & wisdom in today's article, that your destiny is not tied to your PAST; I now am starting to believe this, statement. I have prayed, read many books, made personal changes in my lifestyle, and shared some of my tragedy, I have been through, in the appropriate settings.

Thanks Again++
