Regrets are so useless. We start today. It makes no difference whether our circumstances are the result of obedience or of disobedience. We wake up this morning and start fresh right where we are. Our past is behind us and dictates nothing-no part-of this day or the next. We can obey today in any circumstance and be completely in God’s will one day at a time. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not talking about repentance. Repentance is absolutely necessary. We must call sin sin and turn our backs on it. We must agree with what God says is true about us and our thoughts and actions. What I’m talking about is, having already forsaken sin, continuing to beat ourselves up and filling our days with regrets, if onlys, and what ifs. When we have repented we are cleansed by the blood of Jesus…powerful stuff. “Forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Forsake then forget the past sin, then start fresh every day. His mercies are new every morning.
