How to get past disappointment, finding hope.

“Come now,let us reason together”,says the Lord.
“Though your sins are likely scarlet,they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson,they shall be like wool”.
Isaiah 1:18(NIV)
There is no failure,mistake,or stain too deep to be redeemed by the hand of our loving and merciful God.In the midst of our disappointments and failures He invites us to come and discuss the matter with Him.He is a reasonable God.In the atmosphere of truth He will help us get to the bottom of the problem and find a solution.He isn’t put off by sin as much as He is put off by a lack of willingness on our part to own our sins and errors. If we will be honest,He will show us the way.But if we are proud,He will resist reaching out.
God gives grace to the humble, to those willing to come before Him and stretch out their dirty hands asking for cleansing.A contrite and remorseful spirit brings out the tenderness in Him.He doesn’t want to rub salt in our wounds or even accuse us.He wants to gently wash us,to wipe away the pain and disappointments.He wants to renew our hope.By His Spirit He will remove the stains from our souls and make us new.
