If your like me than you can relate where I’m coming from when you hate having to start all over. Whether that is starting a new relationship because the other one didn’t work out or a new game because the file got corrupted somehow. Starting over eliminates all the progress you have made yet you retain all the knowledge and experience from what you went through.
Yet recently I have eliminated almost all negative notion towards starting over. Reason being is because God loves making things new. We will one day have a new heaven, earth, and body (Isaiah 65:17, 1 Corinthians 15:35-38). Without change or newness we would be stuck in our bad habits and actions. Some things in our lives need to be broken down so that we can start over the right way. In life we will always come to a “rinse and repeat” method because every time we start over or do something new we may come across something that we haven’t noticed before. Just as each day is a new day, we are given a new chance to honor God and love people.
So whatever it is that you have to begin again stop, and thank God for another chance to do something right. Use every new opportunity to seek God for what He is trying to teach you in this new season. The Lord mercies and compassions are made new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23).
