Sometimes, in life, we need more than a reset. We need a clean slate or a fresh start. We shouldn’t look at these times as failures. Instead, we should view them as opportunities to learn and grow and become stronger, more capable, and more dedicated than we were previously.
With every fresh start, there’s no turning back. Our mission is to outperform our past.
In addition, sometimes, a fresh start means letting go and letting God. We may not be able to see what is happening behind the scenes in heaven, but we have to trust that the Lord is working miracles on our behalf.
It is easier said than done. Many people feel they have failed if they have to start something over. But this is different from how champions should be thinking. Champions take full advantage of a fresh start, improving wherever they possibly can.
Throughout our lives, we will inevitably encounter moments when starting over is necessary – and that’s perfectly normal; it’s an integral part of the human experience. However, the real issue arises when we find ourselves stuck in a cycle of constant restarts, repeatedly pledging to better ourselves yet consistently falling short of the expectations we’ve set in our pursuit of personal growth.
2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
This Scripture verse underscores the unparalleled nature of lasting change, which occurs when we wholeheartedly embrace Christ and His Gospel. When we welcome the Lord into our lives, it doesn’t merely bring about transformation; it reshapes our essence, renewing our soul and mind to align with God and His divine purpose.
