Beyond Your Mistakes


Moving Past Bad Decisions

Key Bible Verse: And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. (Romans 8:28)

Dig Deeper: Romans 8:28-30

Will you [choose] to be defined by your bad decision, or will you look beyond them to God, who can take what you give him and turn it into something productive and eternal? You can choose a life of prolonged regret or a life of optimism and fulfillment.

No matter how many wrong paths you’ve already walked, there is still a right one you can choose just up ahead. God is bigger than your foolishness; bigger than the mistakes you’ve made; bigger than your sins; and bigger than the messes you’ve left along the road you’ve chosen up till now. God’s forgiveness and power are able to make a beautiful painting from the blotches we hand him.
