Thank you, guys, for your support!!
I write a little poetry, but nothing that expresses this quite as well as the unknown author of this piece:
If I could go back and undo
Some wrongs I've done along the way,
And know that wounds that I have caused
Were healed of all the scars today.
If steps I've caused someone to take
By thoughtless ways in which I've trod
Have led to a confused estate,
Instead of simple trust in God.
If someone else still wanders on
Who followed my unsteady track.
And lost his way for lack of light
Because my lantern globe was black.
If I could gather up and bind
The wasted years that I have spent,
And treat them as they'd never been
Today I'd be much more content.
I'm pardoned from my undone past --
But even so the hurt is done,
For out there somewhere in the dark,
A soul is lost I might have won.
Psalms 40:12 (NKJV);
“For innumerable evils have surrounded me;
My iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to look up;
They are more than the hairs of my head;
Therefore my heart fails me.”
Regrets are a terrible thing, yet every one of us has them. The best we can do is to start each day talking to the Lord, and live each day in a way that will minimize the regrets we will have about what we do today when we think about it later.
God bless you, guys -
