We all have different pasts and backgrounds with all sorts of negative to positive life experiences.
Regardless, it is the faith that we have in Him that make us His child and Him our Father.
From there, regardless of our past sins and life circumstances, He transforms us for the better and each differs in their way of transformation. But, being loved by Him enough to transform us to be better than who we were before, to being more Christ-like, to being more loving, to teaching us many things from our career, to relationships and family, taking every opportunity as a learning experience — see to it what is He teaching us now in our current season and pray He’d open our eyes to listen, hear and understand and grow.
To grow in faith, in love, in skill (interpersonally, professionally, mentally, obedience in God).
12 Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. – 1 Timothy 4:12 NKJV
13 Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”; 14 whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. 15 Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.” 16 But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. – James 4:13-16 NKJV
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, [b]unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! – 2 Timothy 3:1-5 NKJV
16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for [c]instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. – 2 Timothy 6:16-17 NKJV
