Today’s verse comes from Ruth 1:15-16
I once did a live Facebook Live where I was talked about Ruth and how she set aside her own darkness to take care of Naomi. She decided to walk through Naomi’s valley of pain and despair, move with her to a new town.
At the time, I’m sure she didn’t envision her life as being a widow at such a young age, then having to spend the rest of her life looking after Naomi but she did. However, there were 2 daughters in laws. Naomi told both of them to go and leave her because she no longer has anything to offer them. O left, Ruth stayed. We all know how the story ended but I want you to know two things.
1): There are no mistakes with God and
2) Not everyone that started with you will end with you.

Today’s verse is taken from Colossians 3:13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you ha a grievance against some one. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
God commands us to forgive, it’s not a suggestion. So let’s examine the real then I”ll tell you how I dealt with it.
- You can’t do it by your own power.
- It’s not an excuse for the other person.
- It’s for you.
- You have to be willing to surrender.
- Doesn’t mean forget.
- Not reconciliation.
What works for me…Get quiet. Write everything out. Purge your heart, then prayer then train your mind a surefire way for you to train your mind is to remember that Christ died for us while we were still a sinner

An anchor has one main job and that is to keep the boat steady. Through the storm, the highs and lows, the pain and gain the anchor keeps the boat steady… Grounded.
That is what HOPE does for us.
Just as the anchor can’t do its job from within the boat, but from the outside, we can’t rely on SELF for hope. Our hope comes from the Lord.

Verse: Roman 8:37 Now, in all these things we have complete victory through him who loved us!
In total transparency, how to manuals are today’s hot cake. Why? Because people aren’t willing to fail so we want to know how someone else did “it” so we can skip the hard parts. One of the reasons is we equate failure with scorn rather than a learning opportunity.
Fear shouldn’t keep you so paralyzed that you don’t try, Failure doesn’t mean you cant pick yourself up and keep working in service, for example Peter in spite of his self-confidence and his great boast, denied the Lord, as did the rest of the disciples who fled before the evening our Lord’s arrest was over
What’s the worst that can happen? You learn and try again. Falling down isn’t the issue, staying down is.
How to bounce back
Acknowledge their failures and refuse to hide behind any lame duck excuses.
Confess any sin to God when sin is involved is involved in the failure.
Study or examine what happened so they can learn from the failure.
Put it behind them and move ahead
Anchor Verse: Phil 3:13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself to have attained this. Instead I am single-minded: Forgetting the things that are behind and reaching out for the things that are ahead.
