But he gives all the more grace; therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy into dejection. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you. (James 6:4-10, NRSV)
It seems like there are so many things we can dwell on that just pull us down and push us down and try to make us feel like there is no hope.
But there is always hope. No matter where you’ve gone, or what you’ve done.
God is always there to pull you up, to raise you up.
When yo focus on Him and hand everything over to Him, He will raise you up and will cleanse you of everything you have done.
He will lift you out of the muck and exalt you.
So give it all to Him.
