If we only see the importance of one choice. It leads our thoughts and if not careful, we live in regret. Regret of not doing things difference or wish I had moments that carry us far away. If we could only listen to the voice inside of us that tells us to lean to him (God). If we aren't careful, our hearts become overwhelmed.
Proverbs 16 New Life Version (NLV)
The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. 2 All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the thoughts of the heart. 3 Trust your work to the Lord, and your plans will work out well.
Our thoughts are valuable and guide us throughout a day.
Romans 12:2 New International Version (NIV)
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
WOULD YOU DO IT AGAIN ~
I often wonder if I had second chances on things, if my decision would be different. What if it changed who I am and would I be happy with myself? I often wonder about a lot of things and I wonder if anyone reads this blog and wonders with me. Am I all alone in the big wonder of the why of somethings and how do I totally lean on God? Yet, I place my trust in God and he speaks of not becoming weary in this life. Doing what is right, is still right!
As I see a new day and turn my thoughts over to God, it is called renewing my mind. I often need to do that more than once a day. A second chance is what God gives us and even more than that. He knew life would be difficult at times and that is one reason who he connects us to others. Another reason why he created the Bible so we could see the past and hear the promise of the future. There will be times in life when you must forgive yourself over things. It's not about yesterday anymore but about this day.
I know when you put up walls from people, you block them out. Be careful in whom you block out because it could be the one person you were suppose to be connected too. We can gain wisdom from others and listen to their story of life. Change begins when we open our ears to hear, our eyes to see and our hearts to listen. There are some people we need to block out of our lives. Those with negative influences and those who bring out the worse in us. I like that best friend brings out the best. It doesn't mean there are times of disagreements or issues, we are connected for a reason. We learn to forgive and forget in life.
REGRETS ~ We can't live with them and they may pop back into our minds. Just remember that God wants you to renew your mind and know who you are today in him. You are a overcomer, stronger than you think and lean to him this day. I pray devine connecttions today for you, your family and friends.
