Saturday - "What Would You DO, If You Could Do It All Over Again?"
Most of us have regrets in our lives. Maybe you made a bad financial decision or maybe you treated someone badly. It is so easy for us to dwell on the past and how badly we messed things up. We sometimes think our lives would be better if only we hadn’t made that poor choice. Some people would just like to have a life “DO-OVER.”
If that is you, I have good news. When you become a follower of God, you become a new creature and you get the DO-OVER you so desperately seek. I’m not saying you will forget your past, but I am saying that God does. As a Christian, we get a chance to do what Tim McGraw sang about…. We get to do it all again! Only this time, we have an awesome co-pilot to keep us on the right course. I’m reminded of what Paul says in Philippians 3:13 “Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
We have eyes in the front of our head and not the back for a reason. Today, look to God to give you a Do-Over and look forward and not back.
