“Let’s start over.” Have you ever said that? I wish I had a nickel for everything I’ve started over. Sometimes it was to do it better. Sometimes because I messed it up. Sometimes to update. It’s a fresh start. It’s an opportunity to begin again…To do it right this time.
Even God started over, did new things! Isaiah 43:19 “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
That’s what happens when we accept Christ as our Savior. II Corinthians 5:17 “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”
This time I have let the ball drop with blogging and I am starting over! That’s not nearly the turning point that accepting Christ is, but it is something I need to do. I’ve put it off for a variety of reasons, but the time is now! Behold, all things are going to be new! I’m following Isaiah 43:18! "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.” I refuse to let former efforts get in my way. I love to write and I am determined to do this more regularly. I will not let past failures keep me from trying it again! I will remember that the blog doesn’t have to be a 3 page dissertation…who wants to read that anyway? Just short little blips of what God is showing me in my life is what it’s all about. And He is showing me soooo much!
This is what He is showing me today…It’s ok to start over! So, here we go!
