Make up youMake up your mind about trusting Me, says the LORD. For everything has a purpose. The difficulties in your life are just as important as the times when everything seemed to be going well. For you are learning what it means to trust in Me and shift the care of every burden that you bear over onto Me. I want you to have unwavering faith in Me at all times, not just when things are pleasant. Trust that no matter what your circumstances are, I Am not only aware of them, but I can do something about them, says the LORD.
Stop second-guessing the decisions that you have made and the outcome of them, says the LORD. For you cannot change what was. Know that I have forgiven you, and forgotten everything that you have asked me to do. You do not have to keep asking, for it is done! You do not have to keep repenting of what no longer exists. Done is done, and gone is gone. Do not keep revisiting them. Regrets are not what I want you to dwell on. Pain and loss is not to be your focus. Look forward, and know that there is life ahead, and not behind you. I will heal the wounds of your heart and mend your broken life, and cause you to dream again. So lift up your head and look past the things that are behind you, and embrace the new this very day, says the LORD.
