Youths by their impulsive nature are prone to wrong decisions and choices in their academics, career, and relationships.
The consequences of such decisions could be tragic, plunging the victim into regrets, disappointments and failure. Some youths have been victims of drop out of school syndrome, drug addiction, cultism, alcoholism and sometimes, mental breakdown because of wrong decisions and choices.
Dear youth, are you in this condition? Take a cue from someone who said: “If you have made mistakes, there’s always another chance for you.
You may have a fresh start any moment you chose, for this thing we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down but the staying down.” Like King David in our text, humbly acknowledge and confess your faults to God, your parents and others who have been affected by your wrong decisions and actions.
Don’t allow your past mistakes to hinder your future progress. Seek wise counsel and right your wrongs. Above all, give your life to Christ and He will change your situations for good.
Challenge: Don’t allow your past mistakes to hinder your progress
Prayer: Dear Lord, forgive my self-will as I yield myself completely to you
Quote: Surrender your life to Christ
