Starting over…

Many people wait the whole year and say…”Next year it will be different!” “Next year, I will start over” “Next year, I will organize myself better” “Next year, it will be my year” “Next year, I will definitely loose weight!”

Usually, this happens towards the end of the year. These ideas start to come in mid December…

What if you started the year on the wrong foot?

What if things haven’t been too good so far?

What if even with so many plans, nothing went right? What to do then?

Wait for a new year? Become desperate?

Our God is so wonderful that He gives us with each morning an opportunity to start over. You do not need to wait for a new year!

Today is a new day and tomorrow it will also be and this shows us that we should never give up. It does not matter your pain, your difficulty, it will all go away.  What matters is that you make the most of each morning as a gift from God.

Aren’t you happy or satisfied?

Start over! And what about starting over in the right way?

Here goes just a tip for you who want to start over:


Forgive that someone who hurt you; who said something you did not like; who betrayed you; who offended you.

Forgive yourself. Stop putting yourself down because of a mistake you made.  It does not matter how bad that mistake was; if you do not drop it, forgive yourself, then you will never be able to start over and get it right next time!

Look at this wonderful scripture……

Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23

This means that we have the opportunity to start over every day!

How about you? What are you waiting for?
