If Only

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you.We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you[ to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. Colossians 1:9-12

Often we have regrets in life after someone passes away. If only I had given them one last hug. If only I had been nicer. If only I had not said harsh words the last time we spoke. If only I had let go of that grudge. If only I had called them more. If only I had remembered their birthday. 

Life can not be lived with regrets. We live and we die. Every day should be lived as if it were you last one on Earth cause it may be. Treat you family and friends kindly all the time. You do not want to have to live with the fact you had a fight with your spouse then they go to work and get in car wreck and die. Guilt takes over and you are consumed by it. Live a life worth living every day and go about doing good and sharing and loving then you won't have to worry you should not have said or done something. 

Above all do not live in the past. It is over and nothing can be done about it. Live for today. Find a way to help others. Go about showing Jesus' love wherever you go and stop saying "If Only" cause God knows your heart. He is not mad at you for missing an opportunity. Only Satan condemns you. just make sure each day is lived for Christ and you will have no regrets. 

PRAYER: Thank you Lord for loving me. Thank you Lord for forgiving me when I mess up. Thank you Lord for hearing my prayers. In Jesus' name. Amen.
