“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” -Maria Robinson
Your life is full of ups and downs. Sometimes you can get stuck when you have ups and downs. We notice everything in life is falling apart and it doesn’t seem like there’s anyway up. You regret the choices you’ve made.
Think positive thoughts. Say nice things. Do good to others. Everything Comes Back.
You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change your tomorrow.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” (2 Corinthians 5:17). There it is! Right on the pages of God’s Word we are told that we are being made new. We can choose to believe it and walk in that truth, or we can deny the power of God and His power to change even the deadest of hearts into hearts softened with love. He is making all things new, He is bringing the dead back to life!
