The Pain of Regret

Regret; feel sad, repentant, or disappointed over.

Have you ever did something that cause you to regret what you did? The pain of regret is not a good feeling because you’re constantly thinking about how you wish you could have changed it. How you wish you could just go back in time and erase that memory. I know that I am not the only one that wishes that life has a rewind button. The truth is life does not have a button for that, all you can do is move on from it. Yes, of course it will always be there. There will be things in life that keeps bringing you back to the pain of regret.

“Thinking before acting is wisdom; acting before thinking is regret.”

Honestly, I act before I think and it is not fun because when that happens, it seems like that life is just getting worse. I regret everything that I have done. The pain of regret will not live with me forever because I have a Savior who forgives. Understand this, regret is reminding us (me and you) that we need to do better. We need to pursue a life that we once have lived or still living in the pain of regret.

2 Corinthians 7:10, ” Godly sorrows brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regrets, but worldly sorrows brings death.”

When you repent to God the pain of regret will be no more. Do not let regret produce negative feedback ask God to help you turn those regrets into positive feedback. It is time to ask God to make different choices. You and I are not alone. Pray for one another. Give God your all, as I am willing to give him all of me.

Sisters

A woman or a girl in relation to other daughters…

Sisters are like a flower blooming in a garden. I have eight sisters yes eight sisters from the same parents. Each of them are unique in there own way.

Dear sisters,

I am proud to call you that… I adore each and every one of you!!! You all have achieve your goals but i know you will not stop now. When I take a look at each and every one of you, you all have different personalities but some of the same. No matter what life takes you through individually you get back up on your feet and keep moving. You are stronger than you think. You are more than what people are saying about you. You can overcome anything that life throws at you because you have people that believe in you. You have a bright future ahead of you. I am proud of your greatest accomplishments.

You have come a long way, building up towards your dreams and the plan that God has in stored. You have hope in the future because your faith is found in God alone. My sisters as I watch you all overcome the barriers that tried to stop you from getting you need to be, you have shown that nothing can stop you when God is on your side. You have each other backs, you have my back. So my dear sisters, keep living and fulfilling your dreams, or plans.  Your blessings come from above not below.

 

 

Love,

from a sister to another sister

Trusting God

Philippians 4:6, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.”

This verse is my favorite verse. When things in life do not go as the way you planned it out to be, trust God. You will run into delays, and situations will arise to get you off course but understand that you should not go outside of God to fix the issue. When God is still, he is not silent. Just because you cannot hear him yet does not mean he is not there. God is always there. Obey God as you wait.

What is God doing as you wait? There are two things that he is doing,

1) God is doing something bigger than you

2) God is testing you in order to take you deeper

There are times in life where you get tired of waiting and you want whatever it is that you asked for right away but God wants you to be prepared in order for you to receive that blessing. God wants to take you deeper first on the inside that’s why you are running into delays. A great friend of mine has said,

                    “When you pursue God’s dream for your life, you’re going to run into delays. God uses those waiting periods to prepare and test you so that you can face whatever is coming in the next phase of your faith.”

See when you trust God you should not have to worry about what tomorrow holds because God knows exactly what you need. Prepare yourself as you wait, that is the key. Trust God and his timing.

Proverbs 3:5

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”

God  wants you to trust in him and wait on him. There’s nothing more overwhelming when God shows up and shows out when the time is right. He makes the impossible becomes possible. When you leave your situation in Gods hands believe that he will take care of the rest.

” Start looking at your situation through your revelation.”

-Sylvester Knight

When you still have God you have not lost everything.

 

Every Life

Every life has a story. The only way you can understand someone story is by walking in their shoes.

Have you ever met someone that told you what he or she has gone through or is going through? In your mind you’re thinking about your life. Wondering if you would have the strength to live their’s. As you hear their story, you can see the emotions on their face and feel as if you are experiencing their heartache.

Every life story can impact anyone. Imagine someone or you complaining about everything whether about their job, family, school, and etc….. and you met someone who has no job, no family, basically nothing that you have. You hear their life story and now you start to think about your life but the thing is God let you met people for a reason. Sometimes you may think that you don’t belong in someone’s but the truth is you don’t really know.

You don’t really know what impact that you have on that person life without even stepping up to plate. You don’t know what you’re capable of doing until you actually do it. People come and go but for a reason. Every life story is not the same, of course there will be some people that you meet that went through the same struggles as you but it’s  your story. There will be a day when you understand why that person is there. You may not understand why but eventually you will know.
