Hitting the reset button
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Lam 3 :22-23
As people we are often guilty of not letting ourselves off the hook when it comes to our mishaps & failure. Although we can pretend with others that things do not bother us the truth is that many of us at times struggle to not just forgive others but also to forgive ourselves for where we are weak.
The truth is that Jesus transformed you into a Holy person - you are absolutely acceptable to God and that is His gift. The sense of todays verse is that each morning the reset button is hit - what happened yesterday is gone. Every morning is a fresh start, new beginnings and opportunity to experience the love, grace & acceptance of God.
The truth is that God's mercy and faithfulness for you will never end. Never means just that - NEVER! Today you have a clean slate and a Father who is cheering you on.
Take a moment and thank Jesus that today is a fresh start. What happened yesterday is not counted against you - Your lot today is mercy, love & the security God's faithfulness in every way.
