Starting Over is Necessary and Needed

Luke 5:36-28 says

"Then Jesus gave them this illustration: No one tears a piece of cloth from a new garment and uses it to patch an old garment. For then the new garment would be ruined, and the new patch wouldn’t even match the old garment.  And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the new wine would burst the wineskins, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine must be stored in new wineskins."

Sometimes starting over can be scary. How do I know this? I actually started this blog over not because I wasn't satisfied with what I had but because I knew that there was a different direction I wanted to go in. I always believe that while it is great to spend hours working on something for hours, I am a big believer in taking a break and coming back with a fresh set of eyes. If we view the same thing for too long we're bound to feel stuck in our own process. 

Making the decision to start over means that you care so much about whatever it is you are working on. It means that you want to tackle it in a different way, offer a clearer direction, or even simply want to change your current trajectory. When you make the decision to start over, know that God will use whatever you feel for your good. 

It is okay to start over! It doesn't mean you failed.
