Do you know what the hardest parts of recovery or making any mistakes in general? The world never lets us forget what we did. The world never wants us to forget our past.

The older I get, the more I see reactions to any news of a death that happened. The sympathy of a life lost is there of course, but the reminders of who they were like is always the same. The conflict with each other could have been YEARS ago but the mindset towards that person is still there like we’ve always known that person every day since their passing. A lot of positive change can happen in such a short period of time, yet the majority doesn’t see it. The common theme (myself included) is that whoever that person was like in the past is what caused their death in the future (example: drinking problems, etc). The world doesn’t want anyone to forget the bad stuff. The world wants us to stay in bondage.

And then I think about Jesus. He’s willing to forgive AND forget even when the world doesn’t. He died for all our mistakes and shortcomings and rose again because He loves us too much. That’s some kind of love, right?

I don’t know about you, but I had made a TON of mistakes over the years but I’m thankful for His guidance and correction every single time I mess up. I’m thankful that my mistakes don’t get to define me. He knows all about the times I will and have messed up yet He still chooses to be nearby and seek me out continually even when the world steps away. Knowing this, I will always choose to keep going after Him

Thank you Jesus.
