Regrets...I've had a few
Posted On 08/10/2018 12:09:08 by Beth777


You can spend the rest of your life saying what if.
What if I had been there? What if I had tried harder?
When it's all said and done, what ifs don't change the way things are now.
The present is what we have to deal with.  During the nights, especially for me, the regrets creep in...
oh, and the IF ONLYS, If only I hadn't, if only I had...Its human nature I suppose, to feel guilt when there's a crisis or in my case, the loss of a loved one. It's human nature to feel somehow responsible. Like we could or would have changed things that would somehow alter the course of life. In reality this is not even feasible and we must know that, must accept it on a deeper level.  I repeat to myself each day:

TODAY I WILL CHOOSE JOY. 

  I won't lie, sometimes I must say it more than once a day to remind
myself not to linger in a place of regret, of sorrow, of ifs and maybes. If I can't be in the here and now then I'm robbing my family, my friends but most of all myself of the gift that each day is. Grief creeps back in, it always will, but I'll be ready because I am greatly blessed, highly favored and deeply loved by the King. The Saviour of the World. El shaddai.  Thank you Lord, for the amazing grace that is ALWAYS sufficient!

My cousin was grieving yesterday, as her mom, (my aunt), died back in May, and yesterday was her birthday. I want to send her card..and this book. Will look for it..I told her time does dampen our sorrow, but we are never the same. Thank you for sharing.

Beautifully written and well said.  I have seen this with myself and so many of my friends.  There is some guilt wrapped up in this also.  I shared with a friend not too long ago when he was in the middle of all of the, "If Only and but if I had" cycle of thinking.  This is the enemies best weapon. Regret and fear, doubts and chacos.  All of this is not of God.  I love this song as it says alot about being chained to what we have no power over.  Love your post.  


If you’ve been walking the same old road for miles and miles
If you’ve been hearing the same old voice tell the same old lies
If you’re trying to feel the same old holes inside
There’s a better life
There’s a better life

If you’ve got pain
He’s a pain taker
If you feel lost
He’s a way maker
If you need freedom or saving
He’s a prison-shaking Savior
If you’ve got chains
He’s a chain breaker

We’ve all search for the light of day in the dead of night
We’ve all found ourselves worn out from the same old fight
We’ve all run to things we know just ain’t right
And there’s a better life
There’s a better life

If you’ve got pain
He’s a pain taker
If you feel lost
He’s a way maker
If you need freedom or saving
He’s a prison-shaking Savior
If you’ve got chains
He’s a chain breaker

If you believe it
If you receive it
If you can feel it
Somebody testify

If you believe it
If you receive it
If you can feel it
Somebody testify, testify

If you believe it
If you receive it
If you can feel it
Somebody testify

If you’ve got pain
He’s a pain taker
If you feel lost
He’s a way maker
If you need freedom or saving
He’s a prison-shaking Savior
If you’ve got chains
He’s a chain breaker

If you need freedom or saving
He’s a prison-shaking Savior
If you’ve got chains
He’s a chain breaker
