Round and round we go!

Round and round we go!
Here we go around the Mulberry Bush, the Mulberry Bush, the Mulberry Bush. Here we go around the Mulberry Bush so early in the morning.

So, here is my question: why do we continue to go around the Mulberry Bush and why are we going around it so early in the morning? I don't know.

Well, obviously I don't really mean on Mulberry Bush. I'm talking about the fact that we continue to go over and over the same things every day. We swear we're knocking to eat junk food, and then lo and behold what happens somebody bring something super yummy and delicious into work and I just can't say no. Or we decide I'm not gonna drink any wine today, then we get home and that bottle of wine is so very enticing and Lee just say OK I'll just have one glass. Or how about, I'm never going to say a bad word again and then somebody really makes you mad and you're talking with your BFF and say boy that person sure was a meanie Coppiniā€¦ Not!

I spent years and years being upset with myself that yet again I had failed to be this perfect Christian. I thought that if I didn't do what was right all the time and say what was right all the time then God would not except me. But this is the thing, I was a rebuilding a system that's already been tore down.
When we except Jesus as our Lord and Savior and we don't have to worry about God not accepting us based upon our behavior. Jesus already took care of all of this. We don't have to try to be good enough we're arty made good through Jesus. There is nothing that we can do to earn or dissed earn God's love and acceptance of us when Jesus is our Lord.

Jesus took our sins upon the cross over 2000 years ago, so can we relive that day? Of course not. So why, oh why are we continuing to circle around the Mulberry Bush day in and day out? Get away from that bush! It's no good.

You are beautiful and you are accepted by God. He is not mad at you. Yes certain things are bad for you and yes certain things have consequences, but your sin and wrongdoings have already been dealt with. Jesus took them all! There's no more sin because sit no longer exists when Jesus is your sacrifice. It's gone, it's wiped away. Walk away from the bush.
