This is not an uncommon question for anyone who is going through tough times. You may be going through some seemingly irredeemable situation in your life. You reflect on the many opportunities you had to make the good decisions but the desire for immediate gratification led you to go with the wrong choice. Perhaps it was because of the decision to ignore the still small voice within you (1 Kings 19: 11 – 13) that reflects the inner guidance that God gives us. And do not get me wrong I am not blaming you today, but rather letting you know that you still have a chance! The look at your scars- physical or emotional reminds you of the times you struggled with making a good choice or choices. The scars either remind you of the conquer you had after a long battle or how circumstances went against you. Be aware of small repeated wrong decisions. Very few people make huge wrong decisions at once; such are outliers. Most individuals get in hurtful situations because of small repeated wrong decisions, which bring about a bad cumulative effect. But today as you ask yourself “How did I get here?” the Lord God is saying you still have a chance, regardless of how far down you are at the “deep end”; irrespective of your age. It`s time to forget what is behind and focus on what is ahead. (Phil 3:13). Will you allow God and our Lord Jesus to guide you?
