It is in the Past that I see Myself Today.

                                       

You shall teach them diligently to your children Deuteronomy 6:7 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

One of the interesting things in tracing your family history is that it is in the past that I see myself today. It is a repeated pattern of dispositions that is in the genes that is passed on from generation to generation. In my case one side of the family is true villains while the other are saints.

Here is the amazing thing though, when we dedicate our lives unto Christ He burns off the dross (the bad dispositions) while replacing them with Godly ones. It is not something that is accomplished in a day or week. Sometimes it takes decades and even then some bad dispositions remain. I believe that the bad dispositions are permitted to remain so that we are dependent upon Jehovah to keep them under control.

“One must always maintain one’s connection to the past and yet ceaselessly pull away from it.” Gaston Bachelard

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with sharing Your knowledge about my past with me to explain my dispositions to me. Thank you for working with me to burn off the dross of the undesirable inherited traits and replacing them with Your Divine traits to mold me into a Holy child of Yours. I exalt Thee in the name of my Beloved big brother Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah
