I wanted share a devotional with you today. It is “an extra insight” piece written by Our Daily Bread Ministries for October 6th 2017.
And it says:
“During the Last Supper, Peter couldn’t imagine he would deny Jesus once—let alone three times (John 13:37–38). But then the unthinkable happened (Matt. 26:69–75). Later, however, Jesus gave Peter three opportunities to express love to the One who so mercifully forgave him (John 21:15–18).
In that love and forgiveness Peter found a way forward. We too can move forward from the sins of our past through the love and forgiveness of Christ.”
Pray this with me:
“Dear Lord, I’m so thankful that through You we can be free of the burdens of the past—the mistakes, the pain, the sins—that hang so heavy. We don’t need to carry around regret or shame. We can leave them with You.” –Our Daily Bread Ministries
Let God make you new by giving up your burdens.
There’s a lot going on in this world. Just keep your eyes focused on Him and keep moving forward. He has a plan for your life. Not your mistakes or failures. But you.
I love you all,
