One of those weeks


2 Corinthians 4:8-9
We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.


2 Thessalonians 3:13
But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary in doing good.


Colossians 3:2
Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.


It's been one of those weeks. Have you ever had one? You wish that you could just start it over again.


You wish that you could fix your mistakes, take back those words, not do certain things.


Unfortunately, that is not possible. When you really think about it, though, would it actually help to go back and redo things?


Even when we mess up big time, God still loves us and forgives us. We should try our hardest to live in a godly manner with His help, but we will still mess up. But God still forgives us.


Psalm 86:5
For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call on You.
