If one person reading this is inspired to not give up or try again or try for the first time, then this little post has not been in vain.
I do hope you realize that as long as you’re breathing, it’s never too late for a do-over and to start again. You might not be able to make a new start, but as C. S. Lewis is quoted as saying, you can make a brand new ending.
You don’t have to be held captive by your past and by your bad choices. You can choose differently. And I hope you do.
Most of all, you are not defined by your mistakes or your past or all those thoughts that beat you up in the middle of the night. You are who God says you are– His beloved in whom He is well pleased.
