You undervalue your ability to reinvent yourself. To begin again. It makes no difference what you failed at. It makes no difference where you failed. And it makes no difference how badly you failed. The only thing that matters is your ability to start over. If you are feeling stuck in any area of your life. You have the option of doing something about it. You must decide whether or not to restart. Never lose sight of your ability to restart your life. There is nothing you cannot walk away from. You make the decision to start on a clean slate. And you get started, as a new person.
From 2 Corinthians 5:17 (ESV), “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” Do not handcuff yourself to the old. Take advantage of a new year, a new month or even a new week. Break up with the past and declare the new. Moses, the man of God, reinvented himself at least twice. From being a prince in the king’s palace in Egypt, Moses became a shepherd in the Midian wilderness. But Moses did not stay a shepherd. He reinvented himself again as the Man of God. Equipped to force the release of the children of Israel.
Take advantage of your connection to the divine life. And restart your life. Everyday is a chance to evaluate your life. Think about where it is headed. And decide you need to seek new things. If you are in a pit, the first step is to stop digging. This is not to suggest that you avoid any consequence of your previous actions. You should make amends as much as you can. And serve out any punishment. Once you are done, walk away a new person. With a clean slate. Who do you need to become? What do you need to become?
