stony heart of sin and give you a new, obedient
heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so you will
obey my laws and do whatever I command. HYPERLINK

Forgetting the Past

Philippians 3:13-14
No, dear brothers and sisters, I am still not all
I should be, but I am focusing all my energies on
this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking
forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the
end of the race and receive the prize for which
God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us up to
heaven. HYPERLINK
"http://christianity.about.com/od/faqhelpdesk/p/ne

Learning from Past Mistakes

Hebrews 12:10-11
Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as
they thought best; but God disciplines us for our
good, that we may share in his holiness. No
discipline seems pleasant at the time, but
painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest
of righteousness and peace for those who have been
trained by it. HYPERLINK

Wait on the Lord

patiently for him to act. Don't worry about evil
people who prosper or fret about their wicked
schemes. HYPERLINK

Isaiah 40:31
Yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new
strength; they will mount up with wings like
eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will
walk and not become weary. HYPERLINK

God's Timing is Perfect

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He
has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet
they cannot fathom what God has done from
beginning to end. HYPERLINK

Each New Day is Special

Lamentations 3:22-24
The unfailing love of the LORD never ends! By his
mercies we have been kept from complete
destruction. Great is his faithfulness; his
mercies begin afresh each day. I say to myself,
"The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will
hope in him!" HYPERLINK
