blown it?

Ever have days where you feel like you have blown it so badly, there is no hope for you?

I can relate.

I have wished, like many of you, I could take back that dumb comment, kept my mouth shut,
stayed out of ‘it’,
handled ‘it’ differently,
or knew then what I know now.

But there is nothing I have done that makes me too far gone for God to reach out for me.
Restore me.
Love up on me.
Want me as His.

When we come and tell Him how much we need Him, knowing all the wrong we do and are capable of, and ask Him to help us become new…
He does.

His Spirit can blow into the slightest crack if you leave it open.

There are days, moments & memories where I wished at those times that I had not blown it.

The items I have purchased i didn’t need.

The friends I didn’t reach out to, letting those relationships fade into the background as work took the foreground.

The times of hanging out with God I missed out on as I was too busy to stop and smell the daffodils (I am allergic to roses!)

The words I missed speaking because i was too afraid to share them at the time.

The words I hurled as weapons, ready to hurt the receiver as much as they had hurt me with their words.

In each of the many situations where i have blown it, the Spirit was there, waiting for me to incline my ear to His direction, His whispers of wisdom, listening to His love for me.

Each day, each moment is a new chance to follow where and how the Spirit leads.

Don’t miss out because you can’t forgive yourself for the past.

Let the Spirit blow freshness, new insight and an overwhelming sense of love & peace into you, as you surrender the what was and move into the what can be.

Together with the Spirit, blow out the cobwebs and blow in His presence as He fills you.
