Out of Time

How many of you have felt like you’re out of time? Like the season where you were destined for greatness passed you by or that your best years are already behind you? How many of you are just trying to survive instead of thrive because of this “out of time” mentality? Well I’m here to let you know that you’re not alone.

If you asked me any of these questions almost two years ago, my answer would’ve been a resounding yes for everything. So what happened to me that completely wiped out this “out of time” mindset? I had an encounter with Jesus Christ that changed my life forever.

Now I’ve told you a little about how I went from personal training to writing books because of a word from the Lord but I never talked about the dilapidated state He found me in before all that. Before my encounter, I was an alcoholic, I was a drug abuser, my mother had been diagnosed with cancer, I was in a loveless, abusive, manipulative relationship, I hated my life, and I hated myself. I hit my “out of time” mindset when I turned 30 years old because I wasn’t doing one thing that I thought I would be doing, and everything I was doing was a massive failure.

In January of 2018 when all the chips were down and I had absolutely nothing left, I cried out, re-dedicated my life to Christ, and called out for Jesus to save me. He came in and began His work on me and my life in a manner that can only be described as supernatural. Putting Jesus at the center of my life, helped me stop using alcohol as a problem solver and helped me quit drinking. Putting Jesus at the head of my life curbed my need to numb myself through the usage of drugs and I quit that too.

Jesus freed me from that broken relationship, though because of my own unnecessary actions it wasn’t a clean break. Jesus even stood in the gap for me as I was struggling to deal with my mother’s cancer treatments and gave me peace. He healed me in areas where I was deeply hurt and suffering before He gave me purpose. He saw me, met me where I was, loved me where I was, and methodically pulled me out of that place.

Instead of thinking that I’m “out of time,” I now look at my life as “on time.” Am I destined for greatness still? Yup, I’m on time! Are my best years ahead of me still? Absolutely, I’m on time! Can I still thrive instead of just surviving? No doubt about it because I’m on time! PWEN people if you want it, you have access to a Redeemer who will free you and redeem all your time. Let Jesus take you from “out of time” to “on time” for He is the on time God. You’ll be glad you did!

Til’ next time, adieu.
