You can begin again!
Getting stuck in life is our speciality, getting us started is God’s!LD
What stops us to begin again is either our mistakes which we think are too big and too bad to allow us a fresh start or the burdens that others have put on our shoulders, responsibilities and commitments we can’t detach or dro.
Think about it, what is blocking the view of a fresh new start for you today?
“Count yourself lucky, how happy you must be— you get a fresh start, your slate’s wiped clean.”
Psalm 32:1 MSG
Know this, we can begin again because we are forgiven, our slate is clean and our burdens are removed. Jesus Christ gave us a new beginning, new hope and a new life.
It’s true that our mistakes can slow us down, it’s true also that the burdens of life can delay a little bit our commencement, but our beginning is connected to our becoming and our becoming is God’s.
The secret to a new beginnings rests with forgiveness.
In receiving and giving forgiveness, that’s the forward way.
We receive forgiveness and grace from God so that sin does not separate us any longer from him – that puts us into new grounds.
Then we receive and give forgiveness to others and ourselves ( that might be the hardest for some of us).
Forgiveness is the engine that starts change and the light we see new beginnings. Forgiveness is The New Hope
”Forgiveness says you are given another chance to make a new beginning.”
( See Philippians 1:6, Zachariah 4:7, Colossians 1:13-14, 3:13)
