There are two kinds of people whose outlook in life are located at opposite poles — those who live in regrets and those who live in hope.
Regret quells the spirit while hope inspires it.
Regret lives in the past while hope lives in the future.
Regret is constantly looking back while hope is constantly looking up.
Regret looks at what could have been while hope looks forward to what could still be.
Regret says “what if” while hope says “why not”.
Regret whispers “you’ve tried it before and failed” while hope exclaims “you’ve tried it before but you can try again plus other things more”.
Regret makes you sore while hope makes you soar.
The Bible says:
“Forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead” (Philippians 3:13)
Every person has regrets. But some choose to dwell on them while others choose to deal with them.
Today, choose to deal with your regrets by keeping them where they really belong: in your past. Then start focusing on what truly matters: your future.
Hope in the Lord. Your future is safe is His hands!
