Amber Alert

Thought of the Day - 6/11/09

Have you ever had anything unfair happen to you? I certainly have and I think that everyone has experienced disappointments, setbacks, heartache, or hurts at one time or another. Unfortunately, many people continue to live negative, bitter, resentful lives because they are still holding on to the pain of yesterday.

The good news is we serve a really big God. He is bigger than your past, bigger than your disappointments, bigger than your problems. No matter what kind of mistakes you have made, God can turn them all around and use them for good. He can right all the wrong things that have happened to you and pay you back in abundance for all the hurt you've experienced.

It doesn't matter what you have been through in the past. Your future can start today. Let hope fill your heart and receive God's mercy. Release all of your anger, guilt, and condemnation. Forgive those who have wronged you, stop carrying around the baggage of yesterday and make a fresh start today. When you do, God will give you a new beginning.

Begin each day declaring,
"with God all things are possible,"
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me," and
"everything I put my hand to today will prosper."

These are not idle words or motivational sayings; it's the Word of God, His promises for your life.

What wonderful thoughts for today. We serve a wonderful loving God. We experienced something incredibly hurtful a few months ago, and it is hard to heal and forgive, but with Christ ALL things are possible. Your words were a blessing to me! Thank You!
