A Time of Reflection and Renewal




2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come

Isn't it strange, that events in this life, can literally feel like a punch in the gut. And sometimes these events, can seem hopeless, often leaving one full of despair. And one of the hardest things to do, is to stand on the sidelines, waiting for a move of epic proportions, that will turn life around.

Trusting in the unseen, is one of the very hardest things to do. For me personally, when it comes to my life, I really tend to try to hold on to control too tightly, often times feeling defeated, when those moments have long passed.


Yesterday is gone, just a memory now. Today is a day to move forward. Today is a day of renewal.

 God removes the stains of our troubles and sorrows of yesterday. Each new day given, is a gift. And it is with expectancy, we face each new day. We move forward in a new found hope, and a new found freedom.

 Today, do not let the shackles of yesterday, leave you stuck in a place of uncertainty, or of complacency. For those who have believed, no longer shall you be weighed down, no longer shall you be bound by hurts, by sickness, by poverty.

 God will exceed abundantly, than we ourselves expect. We see what is before us, God see’s beyond that. He uses our troubles, to shape us, to transform us. We have been made, overcomers, by the transformation. With the love that has been given, with the grace and mercies of new promises, we can enter into a new season of our lives, VICTORIOUS, because our battles have already been won!

So if today, you are weighed down by the woes of yesterday, give it over to God. Place it in the hands of the creator of the heavens and the earth. Place it in the hands of the one who created you. Is there really anything too impossible for God? Move forward in the blessed assurance that the Father, wants every good and wonderful thing for His children. And He has got everything under control.
