Starting Over (Again and Again and Again)

It looks like I’m starting over all over again.

In the past few years it seems like my life has been a series of missteps and start overs, and once again I’m starting over.

But as I think about starting over this time, instead of being overcome with fear (which is my norm), I feel overcome by the possibilities.

The difference?

This time I’m relying on the Lord.

I have believed in Christ most of my life, but I haven’t always relied on Him the way that I should. Like everybody else, I fall down in most areas of my life only to have to turn around and pick myself back up again.

I finally figured out that that  is what I am doing wrong. I am picking myself back up again when I don’t have to.

I just have to look up. God is stretching out His hand and wants me to take hold and allow Him to pick me up.

I don’t have to be perfect. Honestly, I’m a perfect mess.

But Christ doesn’t say, “Come to me when you are perfect.”

Christ says, “Come to me as you are and I will make you perfect. You will become the perfect YOU!”

He has a plan for me. He has a plan for you. All we have to do is look up and embrace Him.

As we keep our focus on Him, He will make a way.
