Regret001Stop Looking Back with Regret

Isaiah 43:18
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past

Our failures and mistakes are part of our growth. Those situations help to mature us and shape our character. I’ve learned to use those mistakes as learning tools and not as crutches for inactivity or conduits for fear.

We cannot become paralyzed by past failures, mistakes, or bad judgments. Stop looking backwards. There is nothing to be done about the past. We cannot go back and rectify mistakes or heal mis-issued pain; instead, we must use wisdom and what we learned from the mishaps to give us a brighter, more informed day now.

Our best days are ahead of us…not behind us.

Many blessings,
