A new year brings new challenges. Challenges in tatting (like Jane Eborall’s Tat It and See), new techniques and in the tatter’s lives. A broken ankle for one, a broken promise to another, presumptions, jealousies. . .an endless list of everyday challenges.
Are we ready for a New Year, a New Beginning?
"Come now, let us reason together,” says the LORD. “Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow, though they be red as crimson, they shall be like wool”.
Isaiah 43:25 “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions, but for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more”.
For the other’s in our lives? Perhaps those ’toxic’ friends and loved ones?
Colossians 3:13 “Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgives you”.
Forgiveness for us and through us comes from God.
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1: 9
Truly, “You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call on you”.
O God, give each one ears to hear and teachable hearts.
