A radical do-over

Daily reading: Jeremiahs 31:31-34
Thursday November 24, 2016

Focus passage: They will no longer need each other to say. “Know the LORD!” because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the LORD; for I will forgive their wrongdoing and never again remember their sins.  Jeremiah 31:34

I wonder if what God was witnessing was this massive train wreck and amidst the rubble, God calls a do-over. Like back in the day on the playground during a four square match, the serve goes out of bounds and you yell do-over and it’s as if you never threw the ball.
Israel’s problem is that they are stuck in patterns that are unhealthy.
Where in your life do you need a do-over?  Pray for God to offer you guidance in that situation.

Prayer: Gracious God, help me to let go of the things that wound me and keep me from fully experiencing your love and grace.  Amen.
