#30daysofthanksgiving – Day 15 – An Open Letter To My Haters…

Dear Haters,

Today I am thankful for you.  You make me want to be the best that I can be for Jesus.  I don’t want to ever be seen for what I do but what He does though me.  So when you bring up my past and say you used to be “this way”…well thanks.  That means that I must be so far removed that you must be trying to remind me of who I used to be when I was not making the best decisions or when I used to be selfish.  Yes people,  I was very selfish and I made very stupid decisions.  But when I chose to follow Jesus it was wiped out and every day I am just thankful to have breath in my lungs.

Haters out there remember this:  You don’t have the final say over me.  Christ does.  My past is gone and I’ve been set free.  Grace is real and I’ve found my comfort within Him.  So, when you try to tell me I can’t do this because of this or you used to do this so blah blah blah…well it fuels me.

So, I must be mad at the haters right?  No…I’m way past that.  In fact, I forgive you.  Because my life is not about remembering where I was…it’s about where He wants me to go.  So the same grace that God has given me though His son I now pass onto you.

Stay classy haters and I love you all,

Jimmi

P.S.  This is a letter I have wanted to write for a long time.  It’s not about anyone specific (so don’t get angry if you feel guilty) but I hope and pray that someone understands that when they are up against so much that people can’t hold them back.  God loves us so much and wants us to go so far for Him with our faith.  So keep going friends,  Don’t give up.  NEVER EVER GIVE UP!
