Life gives you two choices. Regret the past or change the present. (From When We Were Young by Karen Kingsbury, fiction author)
Kingsbury continues, “You can never go back, so make the change. Start today. Life is not a dress rehearsal.” While the Christian believes that there is more than just this life, this author’s counsel is helpful for today. If we are always focused on the failures of the past, we will never be able to face today with hope and purpose. Make the changes needed to live productively.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
