Lamentations 3:22 – 23 (ERV) We are still alive because the Lord’s faithful love never ends. Every morning he shows it in new ways! You are so very true and loyal!
My last post was a challenge to get moving because we all have kingdom assignments. It was stronger than encouragement but not quite a rebuke to those of us that can’t seem to move forward. We all have our challenges. The good news is that God allows us all a fresh start again and again.
After a long season of disappointment, I’m sensing a new beginning. It’s become important to me that I continue learning as much as I can about studying scripture, God’s spiritual gifts to us (help for our kingdom assignments) and the ministry I’ve received from Him (Col 4:17).
God is leading me as I begin again. I know it. That season of disappointment has turned into a new season of letting go (Is 43:18-19). Letting go of the things I once held so dear. They are losing their luster in comparison to the new life God reveals every morning.
I’m choosing to believe in a faithful God. Choosing to believe He is with me every step of the way (Is 41:10), His way. I’m choosing to begin again.
If you are experiencing a season a disappointment, why not take a step of faith with Jesus (John 14:6)? Close your eyes and say goodbye to fear of the unknown (Josh 1:9). Quiet those voices of doubt (1 John 5:14-15). Trust that He will provide the resources (Heb 13:20-21) you need.
Why? Because He chose you (John 15:16). Really!
It’s ok to believe you can begin again.
