1 John 1:9-10 New International Version (NIV)
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.
I MADE A MISTAKE ~
JESUS FORGAVE ME and HE DOESN'T REMIND ME
As long as you keep replaying the past, you are missing out on the now of life. God promises there is a plan for your life, promises for your life and a future. How can we move into the future in living in the past? There certainly is a time to get through things in life. We can't always see the plan of God in our lives and whys might stop us. Things that hold us back from freedom is blacking us from freedom in life.
There are certainly consequences to our choices, but there is hope in a new day. I had to go through a seasons of change in my life. The death of my dad suddenly, my brother who had cancer and died on Christmas Day and a aging mom who was mostly bitter about life. That was my family of four as I knew it. Yet, I have my own family of 4 with a husband and two kid/adults. I have grandchildren in my life and they watch my example. I try to live kindness but I do get frustrated over somethings of life. I don't always understand the plan of God but I certainly is how free choice can move the path of our lives.
Surrendering my will to God's will ~
What does that look like in your life? What do you need to give up to move forward? What you do need to stop replaying and start a new recording of freedom? Life is so short and our choices makes a difference. So you made a mistake in life, get through it with the right attitude of Jesus. When I change my attitude in life, it change my world inside of me. My frustrations turned to joy because God set me free from mistakes of life. Never forgive we have all sinned but then started over.
That's what is on my heart today. Freedom of choices and new beginnings are important. I sometimes start my day over after a frustrating moment. Let's begin again and erase the past. Only seeing the past as a learning experience and ready to start again. If you love the Lord with all your heart the bible says you will keep his commandments ~ John 14:15
Purpose this a good day. My thoughts and prayers are with you, your families and friends.
