Take courage - be glad and joyful in JESUS

A short note from a daily devotional on e-sword. It touched me - since it was in the first person and I really derived strength from it - Like it was my lord speaking to me. 

 Take courage. Do not fear. Start a new life tomorrow. Put the old mistakes away, and start anew. I give you a fresh start. Be not burdened. Be not anxious. If My forgiveness were for the righteous only, and those who had not sinned, where would be its need? 

Remember as I said, "To whom much is forgiven, the same loveth much." 

Why do you fret and worry so? I wait to give you all that is lovely, but your lives are soiled with worry and fret. You would crush My treasures. I can only bless glad, thankful hearts. 

You must be glad and joyful. 

 This one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.   Php_3:13
