Do you need a fresh start?
This little guy sure looks happy to be heading out today. Isn’t that the kind of joy for life that we all want to have? I saw an image earlier this week with a caption that said….”You cannot act like a laughing hyena and expect to be treated like a Persian kitten.”
The image said a thousand words and my thoughts immediately went to the hope we have as complex beings…and believers.
“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 desert and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19
Regardless of our upbringing, past mistakes, trials, and skills, we can still have hope for a better tomorrow. We moved a lot as I was growing up. One thing I came to appreciate with these moves was new starts. Each time we moved I would try to improve upon myself. It didn’t take long for me to realize just how much power my attitude had to with my day. If I thought it would be great, the day soon followed.
If anyone is in a difficult place right now…. today can be your fresh start!
Fix your mind on hope for the future by trusting in God who is making a new way for you. Do not dwell on the past by doing everything you can that brings you joy and is pleasing and right. You are not trapped in a laughing hyena’s body who is dying to be a Persian kitten. Acknowledge that you were wonderfully handcrafted by the Almightly and profess that you believe in Isaiah 43:18-19.
There is loads of hope for a future that is partnered with God! Blessings for a wonderful day!
