Lent (II) – Regrets

Regret.

All of us have some. We don’t like to talk about them. But they are there, nonetheless.

Should we try all means to forget them? I’m not sure.

Between forgiving and forgetting, I think forgiving is much more important. Whether it’s about forgiving yourself, or forgiving others.

Regrets have their uses – if we learn well the lessons they bring.

My regrets sadden my heart, but this renews my hope:

God is able to redeem my regret, for good. And He will do that – if I will trust Him and leave the regret with Him.

*

Think not that you can fail to enter into rest. If He has called you, nothing can divide you from His love. Distress cannot sever the bond, the fire of persecution cannot burn the link, the hammer of hell cannot break the chain. You are secure; the voice which called you at first shall call you yet again from earth to heaven… Rest assured, the heart of Him who has justified you beats with infinite love toward you. – Spurgeon
