I would thank God daily rather than only when he blessed me but when the bad times came instead of the many pity parties I had. I would be leaping, shouting and praising his holy name. Jesus!!!!
I would show more love toward God by not only fellowshipping with church folk but I would beat the streets down visiting the sick and shut in and going to the prisons telling people about a man that committed no sin but was accused of sin. He was hung on a cross and died so that ours sins could be washed away. That man is Jesus Christ.
I would smile and laugh more instead of people always seeing me frowning, complaining and blaming others for everything that I felt went wrong in my life.
I would welcome new changes in my life when it was clear as a bell that the old ways I was using were hurting me.
I would delete certain words from my vocabulary like “can’t,” “what if”, and “I don’t know” these words only heighten negativity that I didn’t need.
I would talk less and listen more instead of trying to defend my every thought when conversations were present with others.
I would have never used recreational drugs as quick fixes for the many challenges I faced.
I would have always followed my first insist which never would have lead down many dark paths.
I would have loved my mother more in spite of resenting her for drinking alcohol most of my life.
I would demand respect from others instead of allowing verbal and physical abuse to take my self esteem away.
I would have been able to love and nature my baby girl(now a 19year old women with a daughter of her own) instead of resorting to emotional abusing her with my words, spanking her a little too much and never really giving her enough of me; because I was always caught with the wrong things and people.
If given another chance. I would “Love” myself first and foremost in spite of the many obstacles I had to endure. I know that I would be a healthier and happier person toward others and my life would gleam with joy and peace.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
