This is so easy to do.....What if this....What if that....But....What if?
What if I'd been that Hippie that I never wanted to be?
(way before my time anyways)
What if I had finally learned to swim. What if I were a fabulous chef..
What if I were too skinny.............
What if I were a professional at anything? What If I had a major degree?
What if I were stranded on an island. (with Gus....joke)
And then there are these kind of "What If's"
What If I had taken the time to witness to that person, What if I had taken the time
to be a better mother, What if I had been a better friend, What if I had not been selfish and had taken the time to listen to the needs of others?
I am most certain that we all have experienced the "What If's" of life....
this is just a part of our human nature!
Regrets can certainly weigh heavy on our minds and can sometimes even become a burden. This is why we must go before the Lord on a daily basis and ask God to direct our steps.....Make our paths straight in order for us to see what is ahead of us.
The very first thing that I love to do each morning is to wake up and say...Good Morning Lord! It's me again and I need your guidance today. Help me to see with open eyes the things that YOU have ordered for me today.
The heavy burdens of regret and the constant worry of the "What if's" can only bog me down...This is why I accept the wonderful Blessing of letting God lead me!
I do not want to let anything keep me from losing sight of God.....
Allow yourself to be free of the "What If's" of life.....Let God be direct your paths!
