Faithful Fridays ~ Free of Regrets

I started Faithful Fridays so that Christians could have one designated day a week (although I don't think they should keep it to just one day!) to share something about their Faith--a prayer request, answered prayer, Bible verse, something God's laid on your heart, etc. To participate in Faithful Fridays, just grab the button above for your post along with a link to my blog somewhere in your post, too. After you've published your post, please come let me know in your comment that you participated and leave me a link to your blog. I'd love to come read your post!

Everyone sins.  Everyone makes wrong choices.  Therefore, everyone has regrets, right?  Wouldn't it be awesome, though, if we could live a life completely regret-free?

We may not be able to live fully regret-free, but we can try really hard, can't we? 

Regrets can haunt us so long, so dauntingly long.  They can bring pain, sadness, tears, anger--they're bad memories!  Regrets can hold us back, make us insecure, and put limits on our lives.

So what do we do to try to avoid regrets? 

WWJD--What Would Jesus Do--may seem kind of overused, but it really can help if we keep in mind.  Or maybe, instead of WWJD, WIJWW--What If Jesus Was Watching.  Another sure-fire way is listening to our parents.  :)  Or maybe if we think about how when we get to Heaven, we will be held accountable for everything--every single word, every single action, every single thought--everything.  Isn't that kind of scary?

So as you go about your daily business, keep in mind that goal--to try to live life without regrets.  Because, after all, we all want to stand before God with as little on our conscience as possible, don't we?

You are so right. If we all stopped and considered and sought God's instruction or Will before acting on our own, we would have less regrets in our life! I love your thinking!

Of course, I participated in Faithful Friday! Thank you for coming up with the idea a long time ago!

I love you! 10!
