Tiny, silly, huge… We. All. Make. Mistakes.
Here’s the thing, yes, you made a mistake but you are not a mistake neither are you, your mistake.
God loves you. He offers you forgiveness and wants you to repent and receive it.
You may say, Oh no, you have no idea what I have done, I don’t think God wants to have anything to do with me or someone may have written you off, given up on you because of a mistake you made.
Well, thankfully, there’s hope for our ‘oops’. God is able to redeem and restore regardless of what people think, say or do.
See what bible says in Isaiah 55:7-8 (AMP);
Let the wicked leave (behind) his way
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
And let him return to the Lord,
And He will have compassion (mercy) on him,
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.
See? So, whose report will you believe?
Stop being too hard on yourself, instead;
Accept that you MISSED it and TAKE responsibility for it.
Repent before God and receive His forgiveness, you know God forgives and forgets, right? So, don’t let guilt hold you down. Forgive yourself as well.
Find the lessons in your mistake and move on with them. Do better. Keep growing.
Walk with God to stay on track, you may still slip but He’s got you.
Believe the best regardless. All things work together for our good and as I often say, you may have blown it a few times but God can still blow your mind.
Choose to believe God’s report when people bring up your mistake.
“Do not remember the former things, or ponder the things of the past. Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing…”, God says.
