Hit the reset button

We start out each morning with the opportunity to handle today differently. Just because we made mistakes yesterday doesn't mean that we should let those mistakes define who we are today. We actually can start over... So often, I think we hold ourselves to a nearly impossible standard. We succumb to bad habits we're trying our best to break because of this phenomenon (we're human) but we let those hang over us like an impossible task master. It becomes a 'Catch 22'. It does no good to dwell on the past, to ruminate over where we fell short, especially if it affects our ability to improve ourselves today. God is more forgiving than I think we give Him credit for.

Lamentations 3:22 "The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."

However, if we surround ourselves with those who continually remind us of where we fell short, that can be just as destructive. The company we keep is just as important as anything else.

Living in the past regarding our past transgressions will affect our ability to move forward and reconcile with someone, for example... And that, in turn, will affect how God sees our attempts to fix a relationship and ultimately glorify Him.

Matthew 5:23-24 "So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift."

We have a reset button that God gives us everyday. It's in the form of a new day He gives us to try again.

2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come."
