About You

You are LOVED by God. There is nothing you can do, or can't do to make him love you more or less. He loves you because he loves you. Because you are His child.

More then your past
Worth it
A treasure
You matter.

New everyday.

I think I'm going to have to run with this New Year theme. I decided to pick up the blog again, and run with it for the new year, and mentally it's easier to start anew and fresh when it's a new year. But in reality, we are all new creations in Christ EVERYDAY. Why? Because he's an awesome loving God and doesn't look at our past. His grace and mercy is new EVERY morning. How awesome is that?!
This past year has been a whirlwind for me and my faith, and I've grown a ton and learned SO much and I hope to share some of that in the coming days.

There's a few verses that I think are good for the new year, but even if you read this post in June, they are still good verses for starting over. 

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

Isaiah 43:16, 18-19

  This is what the Lord says—
    he who made a way through the sea,
    a path through the mighty waters,

 “Forget the former things;
    do not dwell on the past.
 See, I am doing a new thing!
    Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert
    and streams in the wasteland.

I hope that these verses help you in knowing that you really are a new creation in Christ, every single day.

 Our daddy is always doing something new in us!!

So, even if yesterday you failed on what you planned on doing for the new year, it's OK. Start again today. Get back up, and start over because it's a new day! 
Do you know that God doesn't "remind" you of what you did wrong yesterday? Or the day before that, or the day before that?
If you are hearing condemnation of what you did in the past, even 3 hours ago, that is not God. That's Satan. You are forgiven of your sins , past, present, and future by what Jesus did on the cross for you. If the God of the universe forgives you, you need to forgive yourself. Brush yourself off, and start over. When you have Christ living in you, you have the power to succeed!!

Philippians 4:13

 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
If you don't have Jesus, and you want to know more about him, just ask! Feel free to email me at Redeemedandrooted@gmail.com
If you DO have him, then don't forget to live like it. :) 
Here's to a New year. A new ME. A new YOU.
