there are many things that joy in life. one of them is living with regrets from our past. so if you want to have a joy filled life then throw out all the regrets from your past.
the bible says to forget them and once you forget then you can get on with your life. but how can you do that?
well, you can forget them because GOD does. the bible says that when we come to GOD and say, “GOD, i’m sorry. i’ve blown it. i’ve made a mistake.” when we come to CHRIST and confess our sin to HIM, HE takes those sins and throws them in the deepest parts of the oceans and puts up a “no fishing” sign. the bible says, their sins will i remember no more.
that’s an amazing verse. that the GOD of the universe chooses to forget your mistakes once they’re confessed. if GOD can forget your mistakes and your sins, so can you. then you can get on with life.
isaiah 43.18-19 (ncv), forget what happened before, and do not think about the past. look at the new thing I am going to do.
the starting point of joy in your life is to let go of the past. through out all regrets – the grief, the grudges and the guilt.
just a thought from the front porch…
