I am certain that every one of us has felt the sting of missing the mark. We all make mistakes. I was reading a Psalm today where David is talking in his own way to God. He had just made a HUGE mistake. He should have been on the battle field but he decided to stay home. He was hanging out at his home is a state of idleness and suddenly his eyes got a hold of a fox named Bathsheba. One thing led to another and David got in over his head.
Psalm 51 is him talking about how he feels. He says things like "scrub away my guilt; soak me in your laundry God; don't throw me out with the trash". He felt like it was all over. It was in that state of repentance where God began to rebuild and repair him. It was not too late.God is huge in mercy and grace. He gives us what we need, NOT what we deserve!
It's not too late for you either! It does not matter what you have done. What is important is what you do from this point forward. Pick yourself up. Change your daily routine. Invest in a new relationship or support a new project. David asked God to help him tune into some foot-tapping songs! It's time for you to get your groove back! If Thelma can do it, you can too!
