Is It Too Late?

As you read this, read out loud with excitement in your voice because this topic really excites me!! 

Are you one of the millions of people in the world who start a diet only to cave into a big slice of cherry cheesecake?  Then because you failed you completely give up on the diet.  Or you commit to spending time with God then miss a day and give up altogether?   When we do things like this we think it is too late.  Well, there is good news!  God's mercies are new every morning!  In fact, once we ask God to forgive us His mercies are new. 

I love Lamentations 3:22-23 in the Message version.  It says, "God's loyal love couldn't have run out, His merciful love couldn't have dried up.  They're created new every morning.  How great Your faithfulness!"

All it takes is asking God to forgive and help us.  Then make that decision to move forward.  Okay, so you missed a day of Bible study or said a bad word or fought with someone.  Now ask God to forgive you and move on!  God is that good.  His mercies never run out!  God loves us and He will forgive us.  

So, when you mess up, take heart!  God's mercies are new!
