THE VINE

John 15:5 I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
Reach out to Him. Cling to Him.
Just recently I heard two messages about forgiveness. 
Not other people, but yourself. Jesus wants us to forgive ourselves. Don't continue to live in the past. Or suffer from mistakes we have made. In other words, let it go. Give it to Him.  I love the way He puts people in my life to love. 
None of us knows what is going on inside someone else head. Or the torture we put ourselves through because of mistakes we have made. Bad choices are a part of growing up. 
 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. I Corinthians 13:7.
Regardless of the mistakes we have made, He is still in love with us. He created us in His image.
Reach out to Him. 
Don't worry about yesterday, it's a waste of time and energy. Pray about today, now, and tomorrow.
Give your heart to Him and hang on for the ride of your life.
Matthew 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
