Starting from Scratch
I am sure that most of us have heard the phrase 'starting from scratch' before (If you would like to know where it originates from click here). We come to understand that it means 'beginning all over again.'
I am convinced that part of my commitment to Jesus means that I need to 'start from scratch' every morning. I am conscious of my own mistakes and short-comings and so the best place to begin a new day is with confession - starting clean.
Why don't you take 2 minutes to spend quietly in prayer. Starting from scratch can be quite liberating.
Psalm 51:2 - "Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin."
Living in grace
