I don't believe it's ever too late to begin again. It just takes determination, thinking right thoughts and pressing forward.
So many changes in my own life and I've watched life suddenly change. A few days away has made me realize where my life is today. It's passing quickly and I'm missing out on so much. I find myself thinking somethings over and I suddenly realize it's never too late to start doing what you know to do.
IT'S NEVER TOO LATE ~
To return to God and his plan for your life
Joel 2:12-13 New International Version
Rend Your Heart
12 “Even now,” declares the Lord,
“return to me with all your heart,
with fasting and weeping and mourning.”
13 Rend your heart
and not your garments.
Return to the Lord your God,
for he is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and abounding in love,
and he relents from sending calamity.
IT'S NEVER TOO LATE ~
Surrender of your heart and mind is important. The way we look at things changes us from the inside out. I write about this often, but our choices matter. I have talked with people who feel that God will never forgive them. Their mistakes overrides the forgiving love of God, but God forgives and forgets. He isn't a God who reminds us of our mistakes. We might feel that, but he doesn't remind us. In our own remembrance we still have a choice to let it go.
God's love is amazing ~
Romans 5:8 English Standard Version
~ but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Matthew 5:7 New Life Version
~ Those who show loving-kindness are happy, because they will have loving-kindness shown to them.
As for you and me, let us forgive ourselves in life and press forward. Let us also forgive others, just like God forgave each of us. We don't have to let a person back into the middle of our lives, but we certainly need to forgive. I was faced with forgiving someone who lied on me and it wasn't easy. It took a long time, but now I say it's done. I did my best, I did what the Bible says about asking forgiveness and it became time for me to stop letting that person into my mind.
I pray you can find peace in all situations of life. Learning to breathe in storms of life and rejoice in the middle of it all. It can happen and I believe that. So there is nothing I can do about yesterday, but absolutely everything I can do about today. My now of life is here and I purpose to live in today! I hope you will join me in counting blessings, pressing forward and believing BIG! I do realize somethings are very hard to do, but I know you can do it. Through the grace and mercy of God we can do all things!
