Thoughts have been flowing, so I don’t mean to bombard my Facebook page and other social media. I just know that some of those who will read this are going to continue to live in the mistakes and hardships of 2016 and not let go. I want to declare to you today that your financial mistakes this year do not have to define you. Bad relationships in 2016 don’t have to define you. Horrible things you said and did don’t have to define you. A divorce, a straying child, or anything that happened in 2016 does not have to define you.
The consequences may still exist, but you don’t have to live in guilt if this stems from something you have done wrong. The blood of Jesus Christ can cleanse anything if you confess and turn from it. If this relates to something that happened to you that is out of your control, the journey on the road to you forgiving the one who sinned against you can begin NOW!
I want to end with this song. This was my theme for 2014 when the circumstances of my life were less than desirable. May these words bring you hope as you begin 2017.
