As many of you know I have a 5 month old bright eyed baby boy named Jayden! He is our 3rd child, we also have a 9 and a 6 year old as well. Like most babies Jayden has a great temperament until he has a need….Whoa boy then the atmosphere in the Barlow home changes!! He gets upset until his particular need is met… Most of the time it is because of a dirty diaper. Wow, Ill tell you what I’m not sure if he secretly eats eggs or what, but his diapers can get S.T.I.N.K.Y! However, the stink is not going to keep me from taking care of my child’s needs! Which in this case, is changing his diaper and making him clean again. Sometimes we as people of God get ourselves in stinky situations and make a mess of things…. And we think just because it is a situation that stinks, we can not move forward in God or our calling.
Here is the solution:
Go to God and ask for forgiveness, and He will ‘change your diaper‘ and give you a fresh start. You see with God, He not only will change your diaper and make you clean again…He will forget that it was ever dirty in the first place! So go ahead and move forward, forget that mistake, you’re human! You can still walk in the divine calling that God has on your life!
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
