What if Esther did not press through to victory? We would never know her story of the legacy that she left to us. One person who showed us it was tough being a woman, but pressed forward. Standing up for one's self is sometimes we hard to do in life. We don't see things exactly like someone else see's them. The book of Esther in the Bible is short to read and yet powerful. One woman who made a difference and continues to make a difference today.
REGRETS ~ some people live their complete lives in the pain of the past and regrets. Other people do not have regrets at all. They see themselves forgiven of sin and move right into new beginnings of a new day. Our choices affects our nows of life. The Bible tells us to forget and that is sometimes hard to do when something bad happens.
Philippians 3:12-14 New International Version
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Maybe people will not understand you, but you must remember you answer to God and not them. You answer to doing what is right and not wrong. You answer to your soul crying out to Jeremiah 29:11 A plan, a promise and a future. God wants to to be successful and happy in him. There is no way he wants you live a life of regrets. Go ahead and press toward Heaven. One day, all of this craziness of life will be left behind and a place that is far above the rainbow with peace. Living a life praising God and thankful forever!
The devil tries hard to blind side you and keep you separated from people. God tries hard to connect you to others who are like minded and not going a different direction in life. There are days when things will not make sense to your human brain. There are conditions that are scary and those that are victorious in God. Let not your mind be troubled over things you can not do anything about, but do something about the things you can change.
No more regrets okay ~
Be new in God and live Romans 12:1 renew your mind!
My prayers continue for you, your families/friends.
