We each are given one moment, one second, one minute at a time.  We spend our minutes and then they are GONE.  It is impossible to bring all the circumstances and environment together and re-create a moment in the past.  It was not meant to be that way.  Living water always moves forward.  If it doesnt, then it stagnates and pollutes.


There is only one way NOT to miss an opportunity... it is to refuse to go through a door.  Every open door has opportunity to do good and find life, if we do good and not evil..  We change our past by moving forward and letting go of lost opportunities.  We overcome regret by making the choice to change our future.


2 Cor 7:10-11 AMP

For godly grief and the pain God is permitted to direct, produce a repentance that leads and contributes to salvation and deliverance from evil, and it never brings regret; but worldly grief (the hopeless sorrow that is characteristic of the pagan world) is deadly [breeding and ending in death].  11 For [you can look back now and] observe what this same godly sorrow has done for you and has produced in you: what eagerness and earnest care to explain and clear yourselves [of all complicity in the condoning of incest], what indignation [at the sin], what alarm, what yearning, what zeal [to do justice to all concerned], what readiness to mete out punishment [to the offender]! At every point you have proved yourselves cleared and guiltless in the matter. [1 Cor 5.] 


Reaching beyond our mistakes and

Entering through a new door

Gives us grace to let go of

Regretting the past.

Entering a new place

Through a new resolve releases us.


The pain of regret is self flagellation where we do not forgive ourselves, but continue in the punishment of remembrance.  Instead, we choose to change our regrets into better choices for tomorrow.   Regret or repent?  It is an easy choice when we understand the mercy of God’s forgiveness.


John 3:17 NKJV

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
