I Wish I Knew Then….

The following is a guest post from my friend, Juan Rivera.  Lots of food for thought!

I wish I knew then that:
I didn’t have to be perfect, Christ makes me perfect. (2 Corinthians 12:9)

That I will always struggle with some temptations (2 Corinthians 12:7,8)
That I could speak to someone about my struggles. (James 5:16)
That my friends did not have my well being in mind, instead they only care what I have to offer. (Proverbs 18:24)
That my Godly family is the only one that really cares for me. (Matthew 12:46-50)
That following the latest fashion or trend was Spiritual suicide. (Matthew 7:13)
That being me honestly before God is enough. (Hebrews 10:22)
That everything I thought would make me happy ultimately didn’t matter. (Ecclesiastes 2:26)
That time passes by too fast, and I should enjoy it with the ones that truly love me. (Job 14;1-2)
That this is the greatest time of my life; I should not waste it in things that will hurt me. (Ecclesiastes 11:9)
That the things that hurt me were: (Ecclesiastes 11:10)
Overly Negativity people.
Overly Positive people.
Drugs and Alcohol


Continue in prayer for Denise, Dana and her family, Scott, Russ, Columbia, Jimmy and Betty, Mindy, Curtis, Peggy, Joyce, myself, and Libby.  And any of those special people God has put on your heart to consider in prayer?
