Insanity’s End

January 7, 2016

Then let us, with the Spirit’s daring,

Step from the past and leave behind,

Our disappointment, guilt, and grieving,

Seeking new paths, and sure to find.

— This Is a Day of New Beginnings, verse 3, 

The United Methodist Hymnal, p. 383

How’s that go again, the old kinda-kidding definition of Insanity?

Something about “doing the same thing,” right?

Oh that’s right — “doing the same thing but expecting a different result.”

Enough of that.

It’s time today to do what this song says. Time today to step from the past and boldly live into God’s present.

What attitudes and/or behaviors will you leave behind today?

By the grace of God, may we jettison unhealthy disappointment, guilt, and grieving.

Not easy. But you’re worth the effort.

Thanks be unto God: this really is A Day of New Beginnings!
