REGRET!

REGRET!

Regret, the granddaddy of them all and the fastest way to be and stay miserable.  There are few emotions as unnerving as a regret because it is a feeling of loss, disappointment, dissatisfaction, sorrow or remorse for fault.

This is one emotion we should avoid at all cost, and at its worst, regret leaves us in a dark place with our self-imposed grief; I should not have done this or that, instead, I should have…?

The two saddest comments, in my opinion, are It Might Have Been and, If Only!

Then again regret has a finer quality which can be used in a polite manner such as a formal refusal to an invitation.  I regret I am unable to accept your invitation or attend some function…  The key to the refusal is to be honest so as not to regret your excuse if making one.  Better yet, no excuse is needed unless of course, you’re lying, which you may regret in the future, so don’t it twisted.

Just so you know it is not required that we expose all of our business to whomever just because we need a day or two off work or for some other obligations… Things Happen!.

We all get into our feelings at times but wasting time on emotions like longing for the impossible, hanging on to nostalgia for whatever was; desire for what never was, worries, grudges, anger, and regret are all Life Killers.  The very reason we cannot allow ourselves to be overshadowed by any of them.

It seems as if, it’s the Way of the World that the things we love most may be taken from us at some point, and we will always do things we wish we could undo.  But am telling you we don’t have to be defined by those things.  Whatever we did or did not do, Jesus Christ offers forgiveness if only we ask. 

The Bible tells us 21 different times, if not more, He’ll do it.  Read it for yourself, a good starting place is Matthew 7:7 or Luke 11:7 KJV.

Most of us regret the pain we caused others, some could care less.  Then there are those of us who regret some simple decisions we made such as not saying I Love You enough, especially when that person has gone from us. (Death, etc.)  Some feel bad when they have prevented others from doing as well as they could have because of some silly thing, or they just didn’t know they were harmful.  Yes, that does happen, so don’t get it twisted.

Did you know the decisions we make are the root cause of most of our regrets; it’s those decisions that can and will effect others possibly for the rest of their lives; ours too.  Just another reason to protect ourselves from our own actions and mouth, if not those decisions can disable us in spirit as well as physically.  (Soul and Health)  We will reap what we sow, oftentimes living long enough to regret it.

We cannot allow ourselves to be buried by regret, that’s why we must ask for forgiveness and have the ability to forgive if not there is plenty of room for regret to claim your life as its own.

As humans, we probably have thrown away some important things when we were ignorant of their worth, and as humans, we will always regret some other decisions we didn’t think through or investigate.  Get over it, not everything is going to be perfect.

We learn from our mistakes, besides we can’t retract them although we may try to correct them, still what is done is done and no matter how hard we may try to find the reason or answers to why it still is what it is.  Perhaps there are no answers for some, but if you procrastinate, (prolong or postpone) more than likely you will create more regrets than Wal-Mart have over the counter pills.

When we procrastinate, especially when it’s something that requires immediate attention, most times after it’s all said and done we regret that laziness that cost us way too much.  Don’t let that be you because all roads untraveled can lead to becoming a prisoner of regret.

The world is what it is and we can’t always get away unscathed.  Jim Rohn may have hit the nail on the head when he said “We all must suffer one of two things: The pain of discipline or the pain of regret and disappointment.

Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross for our sins, but today far too many of us Crucify ourselves between two thieves-regret for the past and fear of the future.  Fulton Oursler

Just so you know, when we are at that point in life, we do have a choice, we can look back at our life full of regret and pain or move forward with life’s uncertainties with the Blessing of Jesus Christ to guide our path.  That is if you know Him.

Those trials and their counterparts can be reduced if we do not speak when angry.  It is known that when We are angry, we are capable of making the best speech we will ever regret.  What you need to know is Your salvation in this human world lies nowhere else than in the human heart.  Vaclav Havre. 

Don’t you get it?  The Heart is where Jesus Christ should be living, not our regrets.  Can I get an Amen?
