Beginnings

Beginnings

Every season is a season of new beginnings with God. God delights in leading us in new ways so  we know and experience Him like never before. A beginning is a time when something comes into being. In Christ, all things have become new and we find our paths are laid with wonderful blessings.

Knowing our origin helps us trust our destination and enjoy the journey. Day by day we have the opportunity, and the mercy, to walk in the new and living way Christ made for us. We come to crossroads where we have to make choices, and find that in the Lord we now have options we didn’t have before. We can forgive and be forgiven, and be free to start fresh in our relationships. We can love and be loved in ways never before experienced. No matter what it is from our past that keeps trying to get in our way, we walk in Christ; the Way, the Truth and the Life.

Because of our glorious beginning, we can depend on our glorious ending: eternal life. We belong to God and we come from Him. We are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. He is the beginning and the end! We delight in His way and know the Lord upholds us with His hands, from glory to glory!

Psalms 37:23-24 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, And He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For the LORD upholds him with His hand.”

New Beginnings

New Beginnings

A new beginning is an opportunity to start over again. It’s entering into a season without the same ingredients that were in existence in the last season. It is a clear path with no obstacles created by wrong choices we made the last time around. It’s being able to try again with assets which were added since the last attempt. In Christ, we can walk in new beginnings daily.

A lack of forgiveness will hinder our walking in a new beginning. When we don’t forgive others, or ourselves, we actually tie ourselves to the past. It’s like being chained to the offense. No matter where we try to go, we cannot move because we are stuck. The same way we receive forgiveness from God, we forgive others: by His grace. To forgive one action or another brings a needed repetition of what needs to be done at once. We take the whole person and give them to the Lord. We leave them in His caring hands and receive His ability to let go, never to pick up the offense again.

Because of God’s grace, forgiveness and mercy, we can move forward in newness of life at any time. What a blessing! A new beginning, day by day, from glory to glory!

2 Corinthians 2:10-11 Now whom you forgive anything, I also forgive. For if indeed I have forgiven anything, I have forgiven that one for your sakes in the presence of Christ, lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.
