ALOHA FAMILY & FRIEND,  Beloved of God,   John 3:16

TOMORROW,   “WORTH CONSIDERING”   1/1/2020  (Across my desk today.)

Today’s Scripture
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland…”   (Isaiah 43:18–19, NIV)
New Beginnings

We’ve all had negative things happen to us. People did us wrong, the company let us go, someone was rude to us. It’s easy to go through life carrying offenses, trapped in self-pity, blaming ourselves and others. Because we’re always looking back, reliving the negative, we end up carrying around emotional baggage that weighs us down. One of the best things you can learn to do is drop it. Whether it happened twenty years ago or twenty minutes ago, don’t carry negative baggage from yesterday into today. Now do your part and let it go.

Past hurts occurred once. Don’t let them continue to hurt you by always thinking about them. As long as you’re dwelling on the past, you’re going to miss “the new things” God wants to do. You need to be looking forward to new beginnings. But God will not release new opportunities as long as you’re reliving old hurts and old failures.

A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that I can be free from all the negative baggage that comes from carrying past offenses, guilt, and blame. Help me to treat the past as the past, that it’s over. I look forward to the new things You’re doing in my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

My Thoughts:
Immediately my mind went to the anointed words of Paul:   Not that I have already obtained it [this goal of being Christlike] or have already been made perfect, but I actively press on [a] so that I may take hold of that [perfection] for which Christ Jesus took hold of me and made me His own. 13 [b]Brothers and sisters, I do not consider that I have made it my own yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the [heavenly] prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.  Phil.3:12-14…     It is so very obvious that, if allowed, the things of the past can greatly impact and limit our future.  Every day, can be a new beginning if we have the faith to allow for it.  it is in the LORD’s Hands to bring judgment and to redeem us from destruction as in the Psalms 103:4-6:  Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

So it would seem that we need to treat each and every soul….. with God’s Love as we are HIS ambassadors.  As  for many the only Jesus they will ever see is the one that they can clearly see in US.   We need to leave behind our old attitudes and hurts if we want GOD”S Favor and Blessings and to be used by HIM.  As He must treat us  in the very same way that we treat others.  Sowing and Reaping It is a supernatural spiritual law of this Universe that the Creator want’s us to learn about that law.  In Him, there is always  balance and reciprocity.  Like in Adam we all die so to in Christ Jesus we shall all be made alive.   In Adam we let lucifer in and in Christ Jesus we (HIS Church)  get to boot him out.  The wages of sin is death but the gift of GOD is eternal life through Christ Jesus our LORD.  Forgiveness is absolutely necessary for us to find the balance in GOD’s great love for us.  Otherwise we get plugged up and run in circles drounding in our own juice.  We get to thinking about past stuff that we can never fix,  And to the point that nothing else can get through. Study through the little books of James and Jude…   Be Blessed in your day,   Ken<><
