Throw away that script!!


 
All his life he was abused. His dad was a drunk and his mom was having an affair, an affair that led to divorce! His school life suffered greatly! Who cared about science or geography when life was falling apart! His world as he knew it had been destroyed and was still a living nightmare and yet he was still required to engage at school!!! His teachers called him stupid, his seniors ridiculed him daily. He had no where to run but in himself but even that was hopeless because the person inside would tear him to bits, the person in him would tell him how pathetic he was……no one understood him not even his family….

His script.
I am a nobody and no one loves me! I am better off dead…..I am of no use on this earth! If there is a God, He really really hates me!!! No one understands me.
The boy grew up and for a lot of his life he held on to the script that had been given to him through experiences he went through as a child. He wanted nothing to do with his family, he was treated like trash but it never bugged him because his script said he was trash! He was poor but that was okay with it because his script said he was a nobody and he didn’t deserve anything good! He never expected love from anyone because his script said no one loved him and so it went until…..
Something happened, something that would change his life forever. The boy who was now a man found God or may I say, God found him! God changed the way he saw. God started showing him flaws in the script, not only flaws but lies and deception! It was a difficult time for the boy turned man. A lot of the lessons where painful. The crazy thing about the whole situation was there was a part of the man that wanted to hold on to the script!! It was what he knew and even though it was destroying him he held on to it and didn’t want to let go!
But God in His grace and love saved the man. After years and years of rebuilding and restructuring, and pounding and pain the man began to see something else. He began to see what God had for him…..He began to believe in love again! The script he once had was nothing but a memory now.
It would still come back to haunt him at times but by God’s grace he stood tall and strong knowing who his God was and is, knowing the plans God has for him, confident in the God who loves him!
This is what I would like to say to you. The script you have been given is false. God loves you and cares for you and has a plan for you. Your life can turn out differently despite what people are saying. Your life WILL turn out differently. God did not compose the script you are living by now not if it is a negative one and not if it undermines who are in Christ.
You are not destined to fail.
You are not a loser.
You are not ugly.
You are not useless.
You are not stupid.
You are not just a statistic.
You are not a burden.
You are not clumsy.
God has someone amazing out there for you.
You will succeed, you will win, you will prosper, you are loved, you have been forgiven, you are beautiful, you are rich, you are precious, you are important and so much more……
You don’t have to follow the script you have been given. God wants you to look to Him and trust Him. He wants to give you the best. The script is not true. Throw it away!

  1. Such a powerful word of encouragement Rolain. Many of us in life are in fact memorizing scripts from a bomb reality life show that never got off the ground. You are so right to say “throw away the script” in fact many must begin to study and replace the old with a new script, a fresh true word…God’s word. Amen? We can live out that word because that word is true and it has already promised great rewards. Thanks so much for sharing Rolain.

    Be A Blessing!

    • I totally agree LaTrice!! The new script should be taken from the word because that is the truth and it never changes! So so true!!! Thanks for bringing that to light!

  2. Amen!! Without Christ we would waste our lives away and deem ourselves of no value to the world and the people around us but with Him we know that we are conquerors over our problems and our destiny doesn’t lie in what happened in our past but in Him. I’m so glad that we can throw our old script away that is full of the enemies lies and replace it with God’s truth and promises for us in His Word. In Him we will not only have life, but we will have it to the fullest! Thank you for sharing this Rolain. Have a blessed day!

      Thanks for that Anna…..Thank God, He makes the old script obsolete. We would truly be doomed if we lived by the old script but by His grace we have a new one….so thankful for the second chance at life! I appreciate your input Anna.

  3. Hello Rolain! Indeed that script is not true. Worth flushing down! haha. Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you found something that blessed you. I will be sharing soon on some more dreams, visions and things I sense the Lord speak to me in quiet times. You also keep up this great work! 🙂 have a great day!

  4. Amen Rolain! What a great post! It’s so hard when old scripts come back to haunt us. The things we were told as children can have so much power over our lives (as I can testify). I really like your list here. It’s worth dwelling on for sure. I personally need to continually remind myself of my value before God, trusting he has a great plan for my life…

    • Thanks so much Ali.
      The words that were spoken to us as children need to be confronted and challenged by us now. If not we will constantly stumble, fall and doubt and even talk ourselves out of what God has for us…..those words need to be be measured to what God’s word says about us then thrown out….not an easy thing to do though!
      I am glad this post spoke to you Ali.
      God bless you….I hope the family is okay?! 😃

      • Amen – well said! Yep, we need to measure those scripts against the word of God. And no doubt they will come up short.
        True – it’s a tough process. But so worth it.
        My family is still experiencing ups and downs, with our son’s challenging behaviour/ autism. But my husband and I feel more at peace in the midst of his storms (more than we used to), and we are looking at a range of strategies to help him. Thanks for asking, and I hope you’re doing well too. How is life, and church, and friends? Anything you need prayer for?

      • I am glad you hear you are more at peace now. It’s an ongoing battle I can imagine! I hope you find the right strategy for your son! I am good……life has its challenges of course but it’s learning to trust Him in the midst of the challenges! Church is great. The word has been so relevant. Friends…..mmmm, not sure really! Will think about that and answer you when I have an answer!

        As for prayer I need peace! I know He has a plan for me but I just need the peace to wait all the time.

        Direction for this next season of my life. There are things happening that I don’t understand that I need clarity on.

        More boldness!!

        Those are the main things right now Ali. I really appreciate the prayers….God bless you and family!

      • Thanks Rolain.
        I’m glad you’re enjoying church and learning lots. Will pray for you in regard to friends, and God’s will there…
        Praying now that you’d experience God’s peace in the waiting and the wondering. That you’d be reassured He has everything under control…
        Boldness – we all need more of that! Praying for that too.
        God bless!

  5. I’m applauding you Rolain for I think this is one of the most powerful messages you have written. I’m re-blogging on my Cyber Support Group blog because so many are still living the “script.” Thank you for this important message. Blessings to you.

  6. Wow… Powerful! Rolain, this is an absolutely beautiful message for all of us. Yes, the script that has been written by man has to be thrown away. God has such wonderful plans for us.

  7. A wonderful message Rolain, I had a very sad Childhood, one that gave me feelings of inadequacy and fear but Jesus has changed those to ones of assurance and deep inner Joy, I will leave the link for you.

    Childhood – http://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2011/09/27/the-early-years-a-little-lost-girl/

    Knowing Jesus as my Best Friend now as an Adult, does not mean that I’m Happy Clappy all the time or that circumstances are always great but I know whom I can believe in and that He is able to keep me strong regardless of the Storm.

    2 Timothy 1:12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.(KJV)

    Christian Love in our Unity in Christ Jesus – Anne

    • It’s so great how God works in our lives Anne. I am so thankful He can be and is reliable. He knows our every pain and hurt. No pain is too small for Him! The scripture you shared in Timothy sums it all quite nicely!
      I will take a look at your story. Thank you for sending the link. I hope you have a great weekend Anne….
