Make a Fresh Start With God
Author requests article critique
Our pastor preached a sermon on envy that really hit home for me. He preached about how we look at other people and assume that their lives are problem-free, but the truth is that we have all messed up in life. Paul reminds us of this fact in Romans 3:23 (KJV): “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
How can we make a fresh start with God? Surrender your will to God and let Him lead you, even if you don’t understand why He is leading you in a certain direction. Allowing God to lead will help you grow and be the best that you can be. 1 Peter 5:6: “So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God and in His good time He will honor you.”
Acceptance allows us to stop blaming others for our problems, make peace with the past, and admit your character flaws. Psalm 139:1: “Lord you have examined my heart, and know everything about me.”
Taking responsibility for our actions allows us to grow spiritually. You are no longer running from your problems, but are facing them head-on. Playing the blame game is a thing of the past and you own up to your mistakes instead of blaming others. Losses are easier to accept when you look at the “big picture” of God’s deeper purposes.
Experience transformation in your pain, and use it to reach out and help others. Instead of questioning why me Lord, you ask God what it is He would have you to do. Find joy in giving rather than receiving, and learn to listen rather than constantly needing to be heard.
