So many people get stuck in their past. The bottom line is everyone has a story. There may be a small group of people who have had a great life with no major pitfalls in their lives. However, the majority of people have had something happen in their lives that have stopped them from moving forward - things that could have been a defining moment in their life but perhaps not the way they wanted to be defined.
That is why author and speaker Joyce Meyer wanted to write the book, You Can Begin Again. She wants to let people know that God can take the bad things that happen to us and work them out for good. We can actually become better people because of the difficulties that happen to us.
Joyce is a very practical person. While she believes that we all need to have a good, sound doctrine, it is the application of the Word of God in our everyday life that can change us.
We have an enemy, Satan, who is the liar. One of the lies we hear all the time is: It's too late.
"You've tried too many times to lose that weight. You fail every time. It's too late."
"You've been married twice already and you've messed up both of those marriages. It's too late."
"You're already 50 years old, it's too late for you to start a new career."
"It's too late to get your health back."
It's amazing how many people think they can't, without even trying to see if they can.
How about picking up that dream again or try something new again? You would not know what you can achieve until you try. As Joyce says, it's NOT too late.
