Today’s message is a call to let go of regrets and self-condemnation. To fully accept the promises of the Lord and to walk renewed in His light.
There are things in your life that are regrettable, and you wished it went differently. You could not resist, but still dwell on those shortcomings and lament those mistakes. As a result, the recollection of those events just intensifies your self-condemnation and degradation – affecting your well-being.
You cannot change what was in the past. Let it go and close that door of what has been. It is because God will take every part of you, every hurt, and every tear to transform it into something beautiful. He will right every wrong, compensate for every loss, and will do a new thing in your life. You have been reborn after you chose Him. You are now a new creation!
When we accept Christ into our lives, we are not just believing in a higher power but we also profess to accept all his promises and gifts. This includes the Sacrament of Reconciliation where we are reunited with our Heavenly Father, from which we were once before separated by sin.
What this means is that we are born again, renewed.
Embrace the change and what God has outlined for you. He will teach you to become more like Him. Therefore, learn from God, for He is gentle, meek, and mild. Allow His grace to flow in you, to transform you, fill you, and renew your mind so that your face will be radiant again.
God has designed your future with beauty and hope, so keep moving with faith and you will become more fruitful than before.
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. 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. Isaiah 43:18-19
Heavenly Father, I am grateful because in You, there is no condemnation. I will strive to work on myself to become more like You in this new season of my life. I now realized that character is contagious and people can influence me. Therefore, I will now walk with the wise, and will take delight in Your Word by meditating on it day and night. In Jesus’ name, amen.
