“And Jesus said to her, ‘Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.'” (John 8:11 NKJV)
Bill Gates didn’t seem like a shoe-in for success after dropping out of Harvard and starting a failed first business with Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen called Traf-O-Data. Scholar Isaac Newton was a failure at both school & farming. Dick Cheney flunked out of Yale twice, Jerry Seinfeld froze on stage, Lucille Ball was an early B-rated actress & Tom Landry’s first 5 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys were horrible before he led them to a Super Bowl victory. Twice.
Everyone deserves a “do-over”. Failing, even with God, doesn’t make you a Failure. He knows we are prone to sin, yet loves us & uses us still. And each time we fail, He’s there to pick you up, set you back on track & says, “Go, try it again and don’t fall for that sin anymore”. And when you do, He’s still there.
Start your new year right by living on God’s terms. Let old mistakes be swept away with a breath of Grace, knowing that God wants you to thrive in Life & the Christ Life more than you do! Your succeeding is just around the corner from here! Go live it! You are loved today!
