“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:28-29)
Thought for the day:
This devotional was sent to me and I thought I would share it. I don’t know where it came but it speaks truth.
GIVE ME YESTERDAY'S FAILURES, I'LL FIX IT: YOU ARE FEELING WEIGHED DOWN by yesterday's failures.
You wish you could undo decisions you made that you now regret. However, the past is beyond the realm of change and cannot be undone. Even I, though I live in timelessness, respect the boundaries of time that exist in your world. So don't waste your energy bemoaning bad choices you have made. Instead, ask Me to forgive your sins and help you to learn from your mistakes.
I hate to see My children weighed down by past failures, dragging them around like heavy chains attached to their legs. When you're feeling this way, try to imagine Me cutting the chains from your legs. I came to set My loved ones free. You are free indeed!
Rejoice that I redeem your failures, forgiving you and leading you along the paths of newness. Talk with Me about your mistakes and be ready to learn from Me. Ask Me to show you the changes I want you to make. I will guide you along right paths.
Prayer for the day:
I have fallen countless times and am in desperate need of your forgiveness! Help me, heal me, save me, renew me. Amen.
