Prayer: All of your past has shaped you into the person you are today. God uses who you are and all of those past experiences, the good, the bad and the ugly, to define the ministry He has for you. Begin to thank God for changing the negatives into postives. You are, by God's grace, His chosen child. You have been given a holy calling by the Father for ministry. You may have let your past hold you back from experiencing the presence of God. God wants to set you free. Freedom comes when you release your past by thanking God for it. My friend, when God sets you free, you are free indeed! Gloria Gaither wrote these words: "Something beautiful. Something good. All my confusion He understood. All I had to offer Him was brokenness and strife. But He made something beautiful of my life." Today is a new day that God has designed and packaged for you. Give yourself permission to redeive it and serve Him gladly. Finally let go of the past. Reach out and experience the presence of God. Joyfully, Joyce
