Wipe the Slate

I couldn’t make this up. This was my devotional this morning. 

NOVEMBER 8 Wipe the Slate
“ Forget the past. Remember only its glad days. Wipe the slate of your remembrance with Love, which will erase all that is not confirmed in Love. You must forget your failures, your failures and those of others. Wipe them out of the book of your remembrance. I did not die upon the Cross for man to bear the burdens of his sins himself. "Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree." If you forget not the sins of others, and I bear them, then you add to My sorrows.”

Most of America wiped the slate by bringing in #46. Some of America is in hurt. But there is always a winner and a loser. The sad part is that we are so divided as a nation. We start by making a change with self. 

We start our healing now, today. Not just politically- no.  But we learn to let go of past hurts, past grievances, past betrayals. We learn to let go in order to heal. You see, I learned a long time ago that God can fix it in ways that we can’t even think up. But we have to let go. 

When we let go, we give God permission to handle it, to handle us. We need to be handled by God. That’s why we let it go in order to move forward. enough for now.
