Philippians 1:6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;
Sometimes I think I’m too real on here, but do you ever just mess things up?? This mouth y’all. Stuff just flies out sometimes. Don’t get me wrong I’m thankful I am not where I used to be, but I have a long way to go.
A few weeks ago, two days in a row I was convicted over things I said. I have a tendency to replay conversations in my head and sometimes it’s just not good. One of the things was an innocent, joking comment and the person accused me of being a fake Christian and the next day I was in a high stress situation and may or may not have said a bad word. What. In. The. World. I was feeling pretty defeated and then driving along I heard a song I’ve heard a million times and these words just hit home.
🎶Sometimes on this journey, I get lost in my mistakes
What looks to me like weakness is a canvas for Your strength
And my story isn’t over, my story’s just begun
And failure won’t define me ’cause that’s what my Father does🎶
Cory Asbury was singing right to me.
The enemy wants nothing more than to back us off the plate. He doesn’t play fair. Two small mess ups had me feeling totally unworthy and useless. Thankfully Jesus has bigger plans, He knows exactly who I am and what works He has prepared for me.
I can’t waste time feeling defeated. I have to repent, move on and keep fighting the good fight. I was able to use the first situation and hopefully turned it to good. A bonus was that the Lord revealed something I needed to put out of my thought process. In the stressful situation only Jesus heard me and I’m confident He forgave me.
Today is a new day; whatever is holding you back. 🗣️ Let. It. Go.
I can’t say it better than Jeremiah.
Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!”
