I suppose one could argue that there are circumstances from which we cannot begin again. I would disagree. My position stands on those seconds, those moments we can seize, and decide differently.
Of anything you are going to hear in your head consistently throughout your life, is the phrase “It’s too late”. This phrase is a close relation to “you’re not worthy”. When these words pound in your temples, tremble in your heart, threaten to paralyze every possibility, give your head a shake. Who is the ‘tearing down’ voice in your head?
There is a voice inside my heart, who continues to show me beginning again is a reality, every single day. His voice empowers me to make strong choices, healthy, and good decisions. He is the Holy Spirit. Sometimes the instructions he gives are difficult, but they always lead to life (John 6:63, Prov. 4:13). This voice builds us up for a purpose greater than ourselves.
The worst line the enemy of your soul, a.k.a voice inside your head, can tell you is “you can do it alone”. My friend, life becomes the adventure it is supposed to be when we ask for help. And the Holy Spirit is our helper (John 14:26).
” There’s a Voice ”
I come to You, what can I do, You open up your arms (Matthew 11:28)
I crawl right in, a child again, I need some ‘safe and warm’
If I could just go back, before it all began
I wish I could be something good, someone You could love
There’s a voice inside my head who’s keeping score (Psalm 55:3)
Stacked the odds, and made my bed
behind these doors
You lift my chin and look right in, and walk into my heart (Psalm 3:3)
You find the place where yesterday tore everything apart (1 Sam. 16:7b)
You take me by the hand, and I begin again (John 3:1-21)
You pray I can, just as I am, know that I am loved (Eph. 1:4)
You’re the voice inside my heart who’s won the war (Deut. 20:4, John 16:33)
healing wounds and keeping scars (Isaiah 53:5, Phil. 1:29))
right next to yours
I come to You, it’s what I do, and open up my arms.
