Philippians 3:13-15 - Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; NKJV
"Forget those things which are behind" you. We all know once something is done it cannot be undone. A friend of mine named, Preacher Greenleaf, had a saying during times of regret and it was "You can't unscramble a scrambled egg."
Now there is a piece of wisdom for you. "You can't unscramble a scrambled egg."
It would behoove us to learn from this passage. If God had regret, and He did, how do you expect to go through life without any regrets?
Quit trying to do the impossible. Now is the time you need to remember the famous line from the movie Donnie Brasco, which is "Forget About It."
So there you have it. How do you deal with "regret"? You "forget about it."
Make new plans and move forward. It is better than getting stuck looking back at that which you regret and can't change.
I know I have. Here is what I learned.
Life doesn't always go as we plan it. So when it doesn't ask God to help you set a new goal and give you the strength to set out on accomplishing it.
Never let a regret stop you from pursuing other adventures. Every successful person knows how to deal with regrets.
Think On These:
Between tomorrow's dream and yesterday's regret is today's opportunity.
You can't have rosy thoughts about the future when your mind is full of blues about the past.
