Are You Living With Regret?
When you see the word regret what comes to your mind and heart? Regret by definition is a sadness related to something that was done.
But that is not what many people stated in this recent study.
As you watched this, what regrets came to your mind?
Was it a regret of an action taken or not taken?
Living with regrets can be a burden as the video showed. For those in the video there was hope in realizing that it is not too late to make a different choice when it comes to regrets.
But for those of us who beleive in the Lord Jesus Christ it is so much bigger than that. Paul talks about not letting the past determine the future in Phillipians 3:13 “Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it on my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus”
Paul was definitely a man who had regrets for things he had done. But he did not dwell on those things, rather he lived in the newness of life he was given. In 2 Corinthians 7:10 he says “For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death.”
Have you taken that step to embrace repentance that leads to salvation? If so you can join me in rejoicing in the truth of the Love of our Lord. Lamentations 3:22-23 reminds us, ” The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
If you have not taken that step of salvation I would love to talk with you. Contact Me
