Isaiah 43:18 'Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past.' The scripture is basically telling us to stop travelling down memory lane of past hurts, pain, embarrassment and disappointment and everything else you've been going through that are causing you pain. Is it easier said than done? Absolutely. But that's why we have God's grace and mercy in our times of need (Hebrews 4:16). You may have messed up something/someone in your life so bad that you're too ashamed and you want to just crawl under something/hide behind someone/something. You messed up and you know it. You're wondering how you'll get back from it, how you'll rebegin and you have no answer, you don't know how. Because the pain is too deep and you're too hurt for words and you feel you can't trust again and all hope is lost. The fear to start again is crippling and you don't know where or how to go from there.
Well, the good news is, you don't have to remain/be stuck in your pain and hurt and that state of hopelessness. Those are the times that you need to reach out to the one person who is ever present, merciful, kind, and who loves you for who you truly are. Flaws and all. Mistakes and all. He says He's kind, compassionate, and loving and that's exactly who He is (Psalm 145:8) He doesn't see you as a failure but as a learner. And apart from Him there's no saviour (Isaiah 43:11) No one else can heal and mend your broken pieces like He can. (Psalm 34:18) You need to cast all your cares on Him for He cares for you, even when you feel there's no one there. We are made complete and whole in Him. The strength we need to pick ourselves up and walk again is found only in Him.
There's beauty in new beginnings. You can rebegin. You can start all over, only this time with better perspective and most of all with God. Allow Him to fix you up. ❤️ #MessageofHope #Inspiration #YesYouCan #BeHealed #BeSetFree
