We can live somewhere between regret over the past and fear for the future. The truth is when we do live in those places we allow the present to slip past us. It’s in the present that life happens.
We were made to be light and free. God created us to be free of heavy emotional weights. He made us in His image for love, relationship and mission.
When we lost our way, we lost our purpose. God wouldn’t’ leave us lost, He sent love incarnate to earth for us. Jesus left Heaven for earth and dwelt among us. He gave His life at the cross, so we could step into His place as the ‘beloved child of God’.
As we receive Jesus into our heart, we become children of God upon whom the Father lavishes His love. We can bring Jesus our regrets and worries and exchange them for His light and easy yoke.
Now we get a forever fresh start and an endless clean slate. We also can have a confident expectation of good because God is with us, for us and on our side. As we walk daily with Jesus we can be in the moment with Him and access the grace for today.
Matthew 6:30 – And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?
