The right path? There is one good rule for starting over. If something’s broken, don’t try to fix it with anything less than your best effort. The odds are that the more you try to “Bandaid” things, the longer it will take for the situation to heal. Bandaids have their place. When there is a wound and you want to stop the bleeding, dressing that wound properly is important. The Bandaid is only a dressing, not a cure.
Think about it. There are always opportunities to begin again when what we have done first was not the right thing. But we need to head in the right direction first.
God’s Word tells us: “Then the angel of the Lord told her, “Go back to your mistress and submit to her.” 10 The angel added, “I will increase your descendants so much that they will be too numerous to count” (Genesis 16:7-10).
Walking away from our problems and not confronting them is not a path of healing. When we sin we need to lay those sins down before the Lord, the wound fully exposed, in order for Him to provide the healing balm of His mercy and grace. Any other path will only lead to more sin.
“I pray today in Jesus name that when we are faced with sins in our life, we take the time to stop and consider the life’s path we are on, and endeavor to choose a godly path that leads to repentance and not sorrow.” Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
