Regret is one of those things that can eat a person alive on the inside. If there is one truth surrounding regret it’s that no one gets back time. Time is on a fast track always moving forward.
Regret is a funny thing. I think a little regret helps keep me focused on what’s really important. It’s the knee deep regret that’s dangerous. The ” why didn’t I’s & I shouldn’t have’s”. Shame also creeps around regret & shame can take a body down.
I’ve repented & placed my faith in Jesus. Gods Word tells me I’m forgiven. The problem is me. It’s hard for me to forgive myself completely. What’s a girl to do?!…Draw near to the Lord.
James 4:8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
Either I believe ALL of scripture or I don’t. My regrets can put a little space between me & my Savior. Anything that consumes my mind other than Him takes away from my relationship with him. I need to let Gods Word invade all the areas of my life. ALL.
It’s a work in progress. Life doesn’t stop. Hardships, trials, testing, growing…it all shows up. Sometimes at the same time. I do the best I can in the strength He provides.
Dear one…believe He has a purpose even when nothing makes any sense. Draw near to him…He never leaves. It’s the other way around. We are the ones that take a step the other way. A step toward the world, our own understanding & regret. The good news is, you can turn back around & run to the Truth!
