Messed Up

July 21, 2013

People see me as being successful today. They don’t know how messed up I was in my past.
Entrapped in the past? Twisted by circumstances?
God has the power to straighten out what is twisted and supply what is lacking. Sunday is always church day and everyone in my family is going.

    Dear Mr. Francis:

    Somewhere in our lives, we may screw up, but that doesn’t mean we are an evil person. We just have to learn from this experience and move on with our lives bearing in mind the lessons we have learned. Sir, I would like to share this short story to you.

    “Your Value will NEVER Change”

    A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a 50 peso bill. In the room of 100, he asked. “Who would like this 50 peso bill?”
    Hands started going up. He said, “I am going to give this 50 peso to one of you – but first, let me do this.”

    He proceeded to crumple the 50 peso note up. He then asked. “Who still wants it?” Still the hands were up in the air.

    “Well,” he replied, “what if I do this?” He dropped it on the
    ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. “Now, who still wants it?”

    Still the hands went into the air.

    “My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth 50 peso.

    Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless; but no matter what happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.

    Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who love you. The worth of our lives comes, not in what we do or who we know, but by …WHO WE ARE.

    You are special – don’t ever forget it.”
