Topic: DEALING WITH REGRET
Text: Ecclesiastes 2: 22,23
22: For what hath man of all his labour, and of the vexation of his heart, wherein he hath laboured under the sun?
23: For all his days are sorrows, and his travail grief; yea, his heart taketh not rest in the night. This is also vanity.
I have found out that the issues around a man’s life impact on his mind just as his state of mind determines the issues around him. The things that trouble the mind of a man are classified into two and they are; mistake and regret.
On Mondays, I do teaching addressing mistake, let me take Fridays to discuss regret. It is one thing to fall, it is another thing to remain at the spot you fell. When avoiding mistakes is meant to prevent you from falling, ‘ dealing with regret ‘ is meant to keep you up from the spot you fell.
Regret is defined as sadness associated with some wrong done or some disappointment. The imperfect nature of man makes it impossible for him to live without making mistakes.
Let me start by saying that feeling bad about a hurting past will not cure the hurt, the flashback of sorrowful past only disturbs the mind, it adds no value to the person who bears the hurt, anyone who will do himself or herself good will leave the past in the past, and take steps forward into his or her destiny.
The remedy to every hurt in life is renewal of the mind; this is like when a child falls and gets up, dusts himself and keep moving. Falling is bad, while staying at the point spot you fell is worse. Sometimes we are stained and we just have to dust ourselves and keep going.
When a man deeps his feet in mud mistakenly, he wouldn’t be asking questions why and how deep his leg there but rather removes it, clean up and move on.
I will like you to take note of some phrases here;
– dust yourself
– clean up and
– move on.
These are basically done in the mind, you wouldn’t do well if you keep blaming yourself or someone for failure, disappointment, losses of the past. You wouldn’t do better if you keep ruminating on the hurt of the past.
Just get moving, face the future, be strong, don’t mind the shame and pain coming from the wrong doings of the past. God bless you.
* I receive grace to move on in Jesus name.
