Joyce Meyer: Move Past Regret & Make New Choices

Wrong choices cause regret, & when we experience regret we need to deal with it & let it teach us how to make better choices in the future.

I understand firsthand that wrong choices lead to regret. I remember a time several years ago when I looked at myself & saw a noticeable difference between my husband, Dave, & me, because he has exercised all his life & is healthy, strong & in good physical shape.

Initially, I merely regretted that I wasn't as strong as Dave, but then I realized I could do something about it. I now exercise regularly & have been amazed by the positive difference.

The Bible says that with God, you are a "new creation." You don't have to live in your old ways, but you can now make new, better choices empowered by the Holy Spirit. If you find yourself regretting some of the unwise choices you have made in the past, don't be deceived into thinking it is too late to do anything about it. Just start doing what's right & stick with it.

As you start making better choices, you will come to experience a life in which you enjoy God's blessings every day.

  1. That is so very true. I know that I've made some off the wall choices before but that only puts me in a place to make wiser ones in the future.
