If Only

If Only

Do you ever get stuck saying, “If only I had done…” or “If only I didn’t do…”?

If we stay in the “if only” rut, we are living in the past. If we continue dwelling in the “if only” rut, we are prone to depression.  Many of us live with regrets from the past we can do nothing about in our present life. We can pray we will make better decisions going forward and have fewer regrets in our future.

It’s important to pray every day for God to guide and keep you on the right path. We are not perfect, just forgiven if we know the Lord personally. I think this Scripture says it best:

Forget the former things; do not dwell in the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
Isaiah 43:18-20 NIV
