Your mistakes are not the end of you. This is not your end, but a chapter in the beautiful story God has been writing and continues to write. He has plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you hope and a future. God, full of grace and compassion, wants you to come into His loving arms and allow Him to embrace you. You will look back on this chapter and see the beauty that came out of it. Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He hears your cries and He knows your deepest concerns. He meets you where you’re at, even when you feel distant and at your weakest. He is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Lean into Him and allow His grace and strength to pull you through. As you lean into Him be assured that in all things He is working for your good.
For anyone this speaks to I pray:
Lord, I pray that this person will feel Your presence and know in their heart how much You love them and how much You desire them. Help them to find their true identity in You. They are Your child, chosen and dearly beloved. You have knit them together in their mother’s womb and You have designed them in a unique and beautiful way to be used for Your purposes and for Your glory. Give them strength to endure the trials they are facing and shower them with Your grace. Help them to break free of shame and receive Your forgiveness and grace in all their shortcomings. As You say in Your Word, You do not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is Your love for those who fear You; as far as the east is from the west, so far have You removed our transgressions from us. Praise to You, God! Lord, help this child of Yours to overcome all fear and anxiety. Help them to know You are their Source and You will always meet their every need. You are their Provider and their Fulfillment. God, bless them and let Your favor be upon them as they step forward in faith and hope, with You by their side. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains – where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip – He who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you – the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm – He will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
Feel free to share with anyone you know who this may be for. Be blessed!
