A New Start!! It’s almost 1am and I cant sleep 😴!! After driving around a lot just started going through my mind almost like little snippets of life... life!!!
oesn't a new start sound great? When life becomes difficult, when you have failed several times, when you mess up a perfect relationship, when you are bored of your job, your house, your friends, and family, a new start sounds absolutely exciting when we find ourselves stuck and in the mediocrities of life. Do you know what Jesus did on the cross over two thousand years ago enables you to have a new start even now? Though many believers know this truth, they still live beneath this truth every day because somehow the lie of the old life seems to envelop their souls. The truth is the enemy of our souls knows if he can keep us looking back we would make very little progress in the future God has for us.All of us have a past and for some, it may be memorable, and for others, it may be horrible. Whatever the past looks like the enemy majors in causing us to indulge in what was. We serve a God that loves to plan ahead for His children, and scripture tells us that His plans are always good in the end. (Jeremiah 29:11).
hat I have come to realize is from the least to the greatest the most common issues among them all is letting go of the past.I spent or should I say, "Wasted" a lot of time and energy on what was, and what could have been. But I am grateful for the present and the bright future that God has for us. I want to encourage you to make a commitment to stop looking back at the negatives. Our memory is not the enemy but the way we use our memory will determine the detriment. When I look back on life it is for only moments of seeing what God did and how He brought me through. As you journey through life one thing is certain a new start is available to you no matter where you've been or what you have done. Jesus died to save and give you a brand new start. I believe Jesus specializes in new beginnings and now I look at every disappointment, hurt and pain as a chance to birth something new. We do ourselves a great injustice and we lock God out when we choose to keep looking back in a negative way. We were made to move forward and it's time to stop looking back.
The New Year is an opportunity to reinvent yourself and go after your truest desires, dreams and goals.
Traditionally, we write a list of resolutions filled with things to do or not to do. However, many of the resolutions are left unmet. Mainly because you start with a list of things to accomplish, but no real plan to make it happen.
Many times people think, “If I just work harder…If I have determination and perseverance…All I need is one big break…” to make my dreams come true…I just want you to know, your personal vision, attitude and expectation of a great life is what will keep you motivated and determined enough to persevere and reach your goals. Much of success is “inside work”.
Long before it becomes a reality it is born in your heart and mind and needs to be cultivated.
As we embark on our 2018 clean slate, I want to encourage you to not just create a list of goals but resolve to focus more on the inner work that it takes to bring about real change. Holy Spirit, help me from today to live my life with a view of what is ahead; help me to stop looking back!!! Make 2018 the most incredible year yet. Define success on your own terms, achieve it by your own rules, and build a life you’re proud to live and do have fun in the process!!! 2018💞
