Helen 5378: Do you ever witness or testify as to where God has brought you from?

I tried to forget my past at one time until I found out that my past was my testimony and it was a gift given to me to give to others.

Helen, don't forget your past you can use it in your ministry beloved.
---Marcia on 7/25/07

No, I wouldn't change any choices because my past died in Christ.
---Helen_5378 on 7/25/07

Yes. I would have shared my new faith with my Mother.

Anonymous, you can fix it. Why don't you simply adopt a child? Or were you trying to have children on your own already?

The conviction of the Holy Spirit at the time of Salvation is an awesome experience of complete humility!There are none righteous. We cannot change the past but praise God for Jesus Christ that our past is forgotten and all things are new! Now the problem is to grow and continue to walk in love which is pleasing to Him. Confessing and quickly repenting whenever we make mistakes and we all do. I have to keep my eyes open for choices now so I don't even think about the past.

Yes, I would consult God for all my choices instead of my desires. Since I've been doing that, my choices have turned out much better! We think we know how to arrange our lives so that we will be happy but we know nothing. We can't see the future but God can and He knows what will truely make us happy. And He wants this for us. He says in Psalm 37:4 that if we make Him our delight, then He will give us the desires of our heart. I'm here to testify that this is true!

Yes, I'd change on what churches I attended, but then without being there & learning those lessons I wouldn't grow.

Yes, the time I had a lack of faith when I wanted to conceive a child. I prayed and asked God to bless the invetro-fertilization process and it failed. God showed me years later, I'm not going to bless something man has distorted, invetro is NOT my way of conceiving a child. I wish I could go back and change that event in my life.

Once I had my "list" of what I wanted in my wife, then a woman came along who showed me every thing I was looking for. But once she had me involved with her, she started steering things elsewhere, and I knew I was not being satisfied by God to go that way, but I went along with her anyway. So, now I try to do only what God satisfies me to do, and in a relationship only what we are mutually satisfied to do together.
---Bill_bila5659 on 7/24/07

I used to think, no I wouldn't, because it's made me who I am today, but now I'm not so sure I agree with that statement. GOD has made me who I am today. HE has given me a second chance to live my life right, and he has blessed me. I am no longer that same person that I was, and so yes, I would change some things if given the chance, if not for me, for my husband. My past has given me a testimony, but it has not shaped who I am today. To be cont.

Part 2: Although I would make some changes, it is not because of shame or guilt, for God has forgiven me. It is possible to have regrets, but not live in condemnation the rest of your life over it. I know that sounds like a contradiction. I mean to say it's possible to move on from a bad experience, but that doesn't mean you forget about it completely and forever.
---Kady on 7/24/07

We can't, and it's best to let sleeping dogs lie.
What good does it do to beat yourself up over all you could have done differently?
Are you wishing you would have picked a different mate, one that made good decisions?
It's too late, now.
---Charles on 7/24/07

No. Because every choice that I made, whether good or bad, I learned something.
