Considerable Comeback

Send to Kindle

by: Melanie Bonita

I have heard people say that in life; sometimes they feel like they are going backward instead of forward. During a challenging season, that feeling can be even more magnified. They feel like they should be a lot further along than they are in life. Remember that it is only temporary. It’s time to leave those things behind, unless it is for a learning experience.

Philippians 3:13 (NLT) says, “No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.”

As Willie Jolley would say, “A setback is a setup for a comeback.” Don’t look backward, and be determined to make your massive comeback today! While you’re coming back, remember to be determined to be resilient! When there is something that can take you down, don’t stay there. You have to bounce back quickly. The time spent on pondering what went wrong should instead be used to be productive and focus on the purpose and plans that God has for your life.

Jewel Diamond Taylor says, “In a harsh storm the palm tree bends instead of breaks. After you have done all you can during your financial storm, health storm or relationships storm, just stand and be resilient.  Bend but don’t break.  Be flexible and stay grounded in your faith.   Remember, this, too, shall pass. Don’t allow the difficulty and disappointments to make your heart hard like a stone.  Remember you are not alone and you are stronger than you think.” ~ Jewel Diamond Taylor.
