This is a quesion I have been asking myself over and over again, because guess what, I’d like a fresh start and not make the mistakes I made in the past. Is it me alone or do we all have that moment or stage in life, I don’t know.
Often times I believe that I have made so many mistakes that even God’s grace is not sufficient for me (2 Corinthians 12:9). That I have done so terribly wrong that even the chances God has given me to redeem myself seem to have been wasted. I know, feeling sorry for myself too often. But it’s a feeling that I cannot run away from. However I’m reminded that I’m not perfect and if ever there was such a thing as a perfect human being, then where would Jesus be in the middle of this whole mayhem of our lives (2 Corinthians 12:8-10)?
Yes, I’ve made mistakes and often wish I could take them back, but I can’t. Recently I’m starting to get it, this life thing. I make mistakes, yes mistakes, but it’s a lesson, not to go there again or to do things differently. Apologise or make amends, but don’t run away from life. I’ll keep running till the end of time, because this life is full of trial and error.
Hence we have God’s grace, where we’ve fallen short, He’s grace and mercy is following us all the days of our lives (Psalm 23:6).
Instead of always trying to understand, get over it and run away, I’m learning to go through every trial and error with grace because it’s a lesson I’d never learn from any other experience. It’s not easy, sometimes I don’t wanna do it, but I close my eyes and pray that Jesus holds my hand while I go through this (Psalm 37:24-26).
Won’t He do it⁉
