#MondayManna, Made Your Bed Now Lay In It

You’ve made your bed, now lay in it…
Have you or someone you love made poor choices and didn’t know what to do or how to adjust/correct things afterward?

There was an old saying that “you’ve made your bed, now lay in it,” meaning you were doomed in that place. No hope or grace to live by. Your ‘bed’ might be relational, financial, or physical caused by poor choices. Nevertheless, I’m here to let you know that is not life’s plan for you!

There was a man from Galilee, by way of Bethlehem, who reminded those who had ears to hear, to “rise up and walk.” Get up out of that bed of despair and hopelessness, out of that mess you’re in, and walk toward the light that HE offers.

Your life is not over and you can walk out of darkness into the light of a bright future. Open your eyes and SEE, then be healed. And, as the men and women of old were told, “go and sin no more.”
