If you could change only one thing in your life from the past, what would it be?
Personally, I would determine to read the Bible every day and glean as much as I could from it to avoid the mistakes I’ve made. I know, I know, it’s not possible (probably) to avoid all mistakes in life, but I think I could avoid probably half of the ones I did make, at least I would hope so.
Having been a Christian since I was a young girl, I look back on my life and see so many places where I could have done something different to make my life, as well as the lives of the people involved in my life, better. There are many regrets in my past.
Today I try to do the best I can to overcome the mistakes I have made in my past. I pray for forgiveness from those that I’ve hurt because of my mistakes, and I pray for guidance in my future to make others happy instead of always thinking of myself. No, I did not always think of myself, most of what I did that turned out wrong was done because of love for my children or others. It was simply done in the wrong way or I had not thought it through thoroughly. Maybe that was selfish as well, trying to gain the love of others in any way I could; thus thinking of myself.
Are there things in your past that you wish you could change? Surely, I can’t be alone. I know I’m not. Just food for thought today. Bottom line is, if I had been reading my Bible, as I know I should have been, I would probably have been closer to God and more in-tune with His Guidance long my bumpy road in life.
Perhaps today, some one of you younger people might take this to heart. Avoid the pitfalls of life; ask for guidance along the way. None of us are experts on life; take it from someone who has been there for more decades than you have. Have the best life you can have.
