Rise Above

We’ve lied.

Cheated.

Cursed.

Been angry.

Been jealous.

We’ve shamed.

Been addicted.

Been lazy.

We’ve had issues.

But that was yesterday, and thankfully Jesus still loves us today. He still wants to use us. The things we’ve done – the sins of our past – they don’t have to define our here and now.

We don’t have to hold on to them. We don’t have to live in the midst of them. We just have to rise above.

And the only possible way to do that is by letting Him pick you up. He is the only way. The only saving grace. The only light at the end of a long and dreary tunnel.

Step into the light today. Be new. Be used. You’re not who you were. You’re God’s kid now.

“For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You.” – Psalm 86:5

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” – 1 John 1:9
